So I go to the doc with some vision problems: everything is washed out in bright light and I can no longer drive at night. Doc sends me to specialist. Specialist examines me with all sorts of witchery and finally proclaims, "You gots the cataracts."
Posterior Subcapsular Cataracts to be precise.
That would be the bad kind. Bad as in the onset is very rapid. Bad as in it forms on the back of the lens and tends to 'stick' to the little capsule in which the lens is held, which in turn greatly increases the risk of tearing the back of the capsule resulting in nasty complications.
I'm scheduled for a surgical consult in two weeks.
Of course I watched several youtube videos of the surgery.
Seems simple but they're going to have to give me massive doses of Valium.
