They gave me a nice tote bag advertising the place
I was wondering about this as I went to my cataract appointment today. They were supposed to measure my eyes for the lenses and also have me talk to a counselor about prices. Uh-oh. Why would I need a counselor unless it was going to be a BIG price tag?
Hubby went with me and had to sit in the waiting room over an hour. I think they had a trainee looking in my eyes through all the machines, but lucky for me a gal came to assist and told me she’d been there twenty-nine years so that made me feel better. After all, everyone has to learn their new jobs and I’m okay with that as long as they have a seasoned professional with them.
They ended up having to test my eyes again on one test because they water so badly due to my dry eye, they wanted to be sure the reading was accurate. That was okay with me. I’d rather them be sure too, even if I had to stay there all day.
This is the eye patch I'm supposed to tape on at night after the surgery. I was expecting a "pirate patch." I hope this thing stays on. Of course hubby says I have a wild imagination.
It didn’t end up being a big sticker shock after all because my insurance will pay most of it, but I’m wondering if I made the right decision. I suppose I’ll be wondering that until the day I have surgery.
They gave me these dark glasses to wear in the sun afterwards. I may use the ones I already have and save these as a spare. I already broke one pair and had to get new ones that protect against UVA and UVB rays as well as being polarized. I think the last ones fell off my shirt too many times and that's why the lens fell out.
My surgery is scheduled for the 11th and 18th of July. Does anyone have any input on this type of surgery, or know of anyone who’s had it done? I guess I should just be happy if I’m not blind and can get away from my glasses that are always dirty.
Now if they could fix my dry eyes, I’d be REAL HAPPY!
