Went for an eye exam this morning, the first time in four years. (I tried to go once last year, but I had to wait for an hour and a half. They said they would see me in another 45 minutes so I left)

The doctor was horrified at mine. I have to schedule a consultation with the surgeon. I'e been looking things up on the internet but any info from people who had it done would be welcome.

I've never had it done, but I've had several friends who have. They all seem to agree that the surgery itself is straight forward and not painful. The real challenge is being sure to stick with the medicinal drops that have to be applied for several weeks. One friend had one eye done and six weeks later did the other one. She only missed a few days of work and had little discomfort. She said it was a miracle. She could see so much better after it was done that she had to get a new prescription for eye glasses about six weeks after surgery.

I hope you have an easy time of it and the removal makes your life easier.

I've known several folks who have had it - it's really straightforward and easy, and they all reported that they were amazed at how improved their sight was afterwards.

I agree with the previous posters. It is not painful. LOTS of drops and must keep to schedule carefully. Can't have both done at same time so basically it's surgery then 3 weeks of drops then surgery on the other eye etc. it's all a big dance but surgery is pretty easy.

Just commenting to agree with the above. My aunt had both of her eyes done and she fared well. There's drops before and after, sunglasses, a covering over your eye, and if I'm recalling correctly, the biggest issue with the surgery was the bright light. Good luck!

Yup, it's a piece of cake.

Pre-surgery takes a long time as they put in series of drops. The surgery itself is fast & recovery is generally easy. I had one eye done in 2014.

At the time, yes. I've got one brewing in my right eye, but it's not horrible, yet & eye doc wants to wait.

Do'nt worry about wiggling, you pretty much can't. :)
