What is it like to have Cataracts.

May 3, 2013

I’ve to say having cataracts is no fun at all.
I’ve had cataracts for several months now
my be longer.

It started off with me noticing that my eyes
was focusing rite. What I mean by this is
that when I wake up thing was blurry and
I would rub my eyes some times this would
help some times it wouldn’t. 

I frigged it was time to go to the eye doctors.
I went had my eye exam and was told I had
cataracts and I was shocked because I didn’t
think some one in there 40’s could get cataracts.
So the eye doctor sent me to a specialist and he
confirmed what the eye doctor said and I watched 
a movie on it. The doctor asked if I had any questions
which I didn’t. Because when I was first told I came home
and started looking up cataracts on the web and watched
a video on how they do the surgery.

I can’t say I’m looking forward to it because I’m scared
about having my eyes cut open a little bit but I do look
forward to wear I can see again. I my not even need my
glasses for distance once I;ve the  cataracts removed.

But rite now it is getting harder and harder to see. I see
better during the day than at night time. my right eye is
worse than the left and that will be done May 21st.

Ritte now it is hard for me to see to write this. I’ve my
texts at 150 and it seems so small to me. Allot of times
our kids will read things to me.

Durning the day if i go outside and its a bright sunny day
I can’t see allot of times 1 of the kids will hold my hand and
take me into where ever I’m going. It makes me feel helpless
when they have to help me like that. Than there times our
kids for get I can’t see and wil ask if I’m blind. Angel our daughter
will say that’s mean you no mom can;t see well.

All so I’ve notice I’m having trouble telling dark blues and blacks
socks pants ect apart and some times purples and blues if they
are dark.

Not be able to see makes ever thing so much harder to do. Some times
people just don’t no what its like. I know it doesn’t hurt for the older kids
to help around the house or with the younger kids but it makes me feel
use less like I’m not good for any thing any more. I guess I just got use to
doing for my family that its hard not to do. But I do love them for ever thing
that they have done for me. As our daughter Angel has said to me that is
what family is for to be there for each other.

I know with Gods will my sight will be restored to good health again.
