I've just recently had a comprehensive eye exam that shows I have cataracts in both eyes, worse in one eye. I have an appointment next week with the eye surgeon so he can examine my eyes better and see exactly how bad it is. I know there is a possibility of having cataract surgery. My mother had cataract surgery several years ago, and the first eye was done by the surgeon and was great, but the second eye was done by his intern and she's had issues. So she has warned me to make sure that if I go that route that the Dr. himself does both eyes. I read the articles here on Cataracts and watched the video with Florence Henderson about her experience with cataract surgery.
My real queston here is twofold: If you've had cataract surgery, or know someone who has, what was the experience? What questions should I be asking the eye surgeon?
