HELLO, EVERY ONE THAT WAS WISHING ME WELL, WITH THE SURGERIES ON MY EYES. I DIDNT KNOW I HAD ANYTHING WRONG WITH MY EYES OTHER THEN MY GLASSES DIDNT SEEM STRONG ENOUGH NO MORE, SO WENT TO GET EYES CHECKED AND GET NEW GLASSES AND THE DR WOULDNT PRESCRIBE ANY. SAID I NEEDED SURGERY TO REMOVE CATARACTS,AND HAD TO BE DONE RIGHT AWAY AS I WAS ALMOST BLIND, AND HE SENT ME TO A SURGEON OUT OF TOWN,SAYING HE WAS THE BEST IN THE STATE, ,AND I FOUND OUT HE WAS RIGHT, TOO.tHIS SURGEON SAID HE WOULD TRY HARD TO SAVE MY EYES, BUT WOULD BE A 50/50 CHANCE.WELL, HE DID A GREAT JOB AND I HAVE NOT WORN GLASSES SINCE THE SURGERY, BUT HE DID SAY I MAY NEED TO WEAR READING GLASSES, BUT HAVE TO WAIT AWHILE TO SEE.AS MY EYES WILL BE HEALING FOR AWHILE. I HAD 3 BOTTLES OF EYE DROPS TO PUT IN EACH DAY 3 TIMES A DAY, THEN WHEN THEY WAS GONE, HE SENT 3 MORE BOTTLES SO I AM STILL PUTTING DROPS IN MY EYES. BUT, CAN SEE NOW PRETTY DARN GOOD.tHANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR KIND WORDS AND WELL WISHES FOR ME.

JEAN ps, didn't know I had caps on, sorry about that.

Best of luck with your eyes. I've been there and done that, but it was one eye at a time, with a couple of years between the lens replacements. It's been a good 20 years since the first eye was done, and my eyes are fine. I use reading glasses for close work, but that's all.

Jean, I just thought the caps were because you were so excited to be able to see well again and be back on the forum...welcome back!

RE: to all my friends on the forum,I'm back :)

Thank you all so much. yes I was excited to be back and back on the forum, maybe that's why I didn't notice I had caps on till I was ready to sign my name, then I realized I was using caps..I got back to some weeds, and today was working on pulling up weeds. can't do much at a time, because of age and severe back problems, but,I will get it done.Had a birthday while I was gone and got another year older.Can't hardly wait to see daylily blooms again.I'm sure they will look even better now,that I can see better(and no glasses right now) I am hoping I wont have to wear glasses no more.but, i'll wait and see.
Take care, every one,

Welcome back, Jean!

RE: to all my friends on the forum,I'm back :)

FarawayFarmer , thank you for the response and good wishes. I had both eyes done with a week in between,, I was put to sleep for both surgeries because I have such severe back problems and Dr said I had to be very still and not move a muscle,He knew that wasn't possible with my bad back,and also bad arthuritis in my neck and shoulders.I had a very bad time trying to be still during the eye test the dr done him self.There was I believe 4 ladies that each done a test on my eyes, but the last one he done him self as it was very important it had to be perfect.I am so glad its over and I can see good now.Can't wait to see the daylily blooms now.

Thank you , CHRIS,am so glad to be back and not wearing glasses right now. am hoping they are a thing of the past.
take care,

jean

RE: to all my friends on the forum,I'm back :)

maryL. yes, I have been truly blessed that the dr here found my problem and sent me to the very best eye surgeon in the state. and the surgeon follows up to make sure everything gos right.I kept telling my daughter that I am being drowned in eye drops,and I have always hated putting drops in my eyes, but really not fussing about the drops,asI know the dr. knows more then me about it.just be glad when these bottles are empty.
take care now,, jean

Hi Jean,
I haven't been on the forum since the fall myself so I didn't know that you'd had eye problems, but I'm so glad to hear that everything went well and you are on the road to recovery and will be ready to enjoy bloom season.
