susan…. I do not say this lightly but it is something that has crossed my mind if I have to make a decision in the future: I am 77. …years ago when, for instances, cataract surgery was performed, they did one eye at a time… I do not know why but I wonder if it was not only so the person could "see" with one eye while other healed or ? Would it make sense to perhaps not have surgery or treatment for both eyes at same time, but to have any procedure done to one eye and waiting to find out how the eye heals etc. ? I am so anxious I have even done this with eye drops as have so many reactions…isnt it horrible to not only live with illness and disease but also with the fear of the unknown and decision-making?

@lacy2 One eye at a time…..protects the other eye from something going wrong—infection, unanticipated reaction to surgery or medical error.
