... I have just completed my second eye surgery of cataracts. I had my follow up appointment today at my ophthalmologist today and he said I have 20/20 vision in my right eye and 20/25 vision in my left eye.

... Hi there. I have a very similar background and have also had laser surgery twice for the same issues.. When I put my hand over one eye- I cant see anything! Because my contacts (like yours) one is for distance and one is for close up, closing the close up eye leaves me not being able to see much at all. When my eyes are tested separately, one is 20/30 the other is 20/60!!... (2 replies)

... Hi All, I was diagnosed with Keratoconus 2 years ago and I have recently developed cataracts. Is there anyone else here who has this?

I had the "up-close" version of the regular lens that insurance will totally pay for, and I've been very happy. good luck and I hope your surgery goes great! eyemar (2 replies)

... Hello, first post. Two years ago at age 53, I was told I had stage one cataracts. Last month I was told I had stage one-two cataracts.
