I've Got Interesting News
I went to the eye doctor on Friday for a check up and to get new glasses as I knew my prescription had changed. Seems the issue is that I have a significant cataract on my right eye, and one on the left. My eye doctor says they should just come off, or I'll have to keep getting a new prescription every six months.
It was quite a shocker at my age, but I know that even children can get them. This week will be setting up appointments and seeing what a surgeon has to say. From my parents both have this issue taken care of in the last few years, I know that the cataract has to be in a certain condition to be removed, so there is the chance they will want to wait.
Having this news, many things now make sense with my vision. It's been increasingly harder to read, and I noticed that I was having issues with seeing well at night.
Once the shock wore off, I am looking forward to only having to wear reading glasses here in the near future. The procedure and recovery were easy peasy for my parents and I trust it will be for me as well.
Photo from my Snapchat. Do these eyes look like they have cataracts? Crazy!
I know that I promised photos of my living room rearrangement, I will get photos today and share them tomorrow. I did work on it this weekend and I am liking it!
