Developing cataracts in right eye: slight cloud, new optic ideas, shoot with left eye, what is partical


Had both eyes done a week apart in 2018. Age 67. No "waiting for it to get bad enough". Had the left done and thought the right was OK,
2 days after the left I was looking left/right/left and realized the right was noticeably worse than the new one--called and scheduled
it for 4 days later. Left eye was in and out in 42 minutes. Right took a little over an hour--someone was late back from lunch.
Medicare, Blue Cross "advantage" plan to fill in the gaps. Around $300 per eye out of pocket.
Wife had both of hers done early this year, second one just beat the Covid shutdown on elective procedures. Age 68.
Pacific Cataract and Laser Center in Tualatin.
If you are already noticing decreased vision that is bothersome by Medicare standards that is bad enough. The eligibility has to do more with loss of adequate vision and less a specific standard. I am a big fan of pcli in tualitin and specifically dr choe.
Too much anxiety & plain ignorant fear delayed my eventual yielding to reality.
Great surgeon and immediate huge improvement in every aspect of my life. I lost some good years dithering about the 'what ifs' that rarely happen. In my mid- 60s, I could see good enough to have best range match scores of my life.
