Please see Mr. AOW's blog for the info. I know that he will appreciate comments and well wishes.
He has a posterior subcapsular cataract, a bit unusual and the surgery for this type of cataract carries a higher risk of detached retina and other complications.
The causes of this kind of cataract are not aging but rather steroid use and/or diabetes. Mr. AOW had huge doses of steroids after his brain surgery in 1993 for acoustic neuroma so as to prevent post-op brain swelling. He also has controlled diabetes.
I'll be tied up for most of tomorrow, June 21, I think. We must arrive to the surgical center no later than 7:00 A.M. I'm not sure what time we will return home.
I may take Mr. AOW's iPad with me.
