It doesn't help people to create false and scary information about removing cataract. A blunt tipped cannula is used to separate the cloudy lens from the lens capsule and then the cloudy lens is emulsified and aspirated, again with a blunt tipped cannula. No scraping or cutting the lens up with a scalpel. We also have strong medicines for anxiety such that the majority of people have no memory of the procedure except for the bright light. Alas, anybody who lives long enough will develop a cataract sunglasses or no but fortunately it is a problem we can fix.CaptainCore wrote: ↑Wed May 08, 2019 10:24 pmJust to let you know how the cataract op goes, you basically get to look into a light while the guy digs your old lens out with a scalpel, although you can't feel much you get the vibration, a bit like at the dentists, your knuckles go well white as you grip the arm of the chair as he scrapes about getting rid of all the old lens, you get to watch it all, a bit blurry of course because he's just destroyed what's left of your sun damaged lens.
Trust me, my time over again, I'd never go on the water without shades...
No doubt nobody comes to have a cataract removed for fun and I agree 100% with the desire to delay cataract growth and prevent several other more serious eye problems with Sunglasses. I wear sunglasses 100% kiting and advocate as much for the cheap ones as well as the expensive ones that I sell just so long as the user wears.
FWIW I wear Costas with a floaty retaining strap so the ocean does not take them.
