Well the cataract surgery went very well yesterday thank goodness and this morning the eye patch was removed and now we begin 2 lots of drops 4 times a day for about 4 weeks. Fun and games but I don't mind doing this for him as he did it for me with both my cataract ops.
Unfortunately, after me telling him no pain was involved, he did feel some discomfort and his doctor said that very little anaesthesia is used (you are still very much awake during the procedure) so if he has the other eye done perhaps mention he may need just a tad more. He's usually pretty stoical so it must have hurt a wee bit more than he expected.
Another thing that is different is I didn't have stitches whereas MOH does have a stitch (or stitches .. I'm not sure how many as I can't see them). I guess all doctors do things differently but this doctor is much more senior to mine so perhaps prefers the older method of doing things.
Back to see the doctor next Tuesday and then I think in 5 weeks when it will probably be discovered he will need a new lens in his specs for that eye. Fortunately the current frames are quite OK.
There is always something exciting going on in the lives of we ancient ones.
