Most cataract surgery patients are thrilled with their “new” vision after cataract surgery. A few years ago, the husband of one of my patients pulled me aside and thanked me. He said that I saved him having to get a new TV. Before her surgery, his wife complained that something was wrong with their TV and no matter how much he argued, she couldn’t be convinced. After her cataract surgery, though, she thought the TV looked fine. True story.
