“We’ve got good news and bad news for your annual review, uh, Hoomin. Now, about the treat situation…”
I just got scheduled for cataract surgery in a few weeks, and one of the post-operative things you’re not supposed to do is bending over. I said to the nice scheduler girl on the phone, “Excuse me just a moment, I’m trying to work out how I feed the dog and the cat without bending over…” “Take your time,” she said kindly.
But look! Here’s the solution!! Thank you!

I’m not a doctor, nor do I play one on TV, but I had cataract surgery two years ago at age 78, and I opted for the laser version, even tho it cost me $2000 per eye over what medicare and my supplemental insurance covered [all of the basic costs], and it was well worth it. I requested that the replacement lenses be optimized for distant vision because I was used to wearing reading glasses. I used to need Rx reading glasses, but now i can use the $5.88 versions from WalMart.
Check YouTube for “laser cataract surgery” and watch a few and make your own decision on traditional versus laser.
You’re gonna love seeing the color blue again.

I thought all cataract surgery was done with lasers?. Oh wait, I did hear about using ultra-sound to break up the old lens, which fragments they then “vacuum” out. Nope. Nope. Nope.
No research needed, as I couldn’t possibly afford it. But thanks for the tip. I’m not worried about getting the regular kind; my mother had it (no laser available back then), and other people I know – and they all say it’s just fine.
Looks like my intervention.
I should be that lucky, Spot.
