My wife Susans vision is getting blurry. She loses the sharpness of eyesight, and objects appear out of focus and hazy. She can't even handle the daily routines now. Driving at night also began to hurt her eyes. After consulting the doctor, it has diagnosed that cataract is developing in her eyes. Since cataracts grow slowly, some people can live for years without significant effect on vision. Now her case is different. She cannot even read a newspaper wearing glasses. After a detailed checkup, the doctor said the surgery was needed, and it would provide complete restoration of eyesight.  She is the kind of person who never agrees to surgery for a painful hip or any chronic condition until it affects the quality of life. Now as the surgery is the only solution, we can't ignore it. We had agreed with the doctor for doing the cataract surgery from Toronto, but she is completely scared of the surgery procedure thinking that it will lose her full vision and bothering it painful. If someone has undergone cataract surgery recently, please do share your experiences with us. So she can get rid of some of her confusions.
