Marcia, so sweet of you to be concerned. thanks for your input. I have to go
to the dr, next month and have all kinds of pics taken--so will see if they find
anything. I do have diabetic retinophy,too. Dr,seemed to think it was mostly
dry eyes or allergies--but is getting worse. I do have 2 great eye doctors I
use at Dean McGee in OKC. It is a wonderful place--peopl. e come from all over
the U.S,to use it. I have had one cataract removed. I just get frustrated
when I can't see right--but I am thankful to be able to see. Thanks for your
concern and advice. I have had you on my mind too--with all the flooding in
Memphis--hope things are ok with you. Always enjoy your writeups. Glenna G.

Sorry to hear about your cataract, I have one that has been being watched for 3
or 4 years now. I seem to be predisposed to have them because of a childhood
injury to that eye (2 repair surgerys too).
The way I understand it, it is okay to take your time deciding when to have
surgery for removal. There is a slow progressive deterioration in vision that
most folks call part of aging and gets pasted off as natural - like expecting
threading a needle will be even more annoying next year (LOL). But, when reading
and driving are hindered (especially at night), it is getting close to time for
Out patient urgery is not bad. No pain and quick recovery. Just special
protocol for eye drops several weeks that a bother, but then that's ends too.
I am sure you and your ophthalmologist have a plan are keeping an eye on it.
Guess I am just over thinking it, have you on my mind, and wish you well.
