Pete; My brother (the one that went with me when I bought your mill) had cataract surgery a couple months ago and his is still fading in and out, and he has to wear dark glasses when it's sunny out!

He says it's getting "slightly" better!

Had cataract surgery on the right eye yesterday so doing light duty today. Had to wait until after bear season to get it done. Will have the left eye done in a couple weeks. All is well so far.

My update a year later..
Blob is still there. Doesn't seem to be going away.
Few months ago I was getting flashes from what appeared to be around the edge. That went on for about a week then stopped.

About 2 yrs ago my vision crossed and I had MRI and other tests and they couldn't find what happened. Then a friend said he had this happen and his doc said to take A reds 2 supplement. I started taking that and my vision went back to normal. Most Pharmacies have it over the counter as does Wal-mart.. I still am taking it as this supplement is for your eyes. I am a believer in A Reds 2. To all of you that have eye problems I know it can be hard to deal with. The best of luck to all of you. Randy

Mom takes it for macular degeneration, recommended by the eye doc. But it's no cure, slows the degeneration at most, apparently. Mom doesn't think so. :D

This eye problem stuff must be catching.  I had a macular hole repaired in my right eye about a month ago or so.  I spent a miserable week or so with my head down...slept on a massage table on my belly for a week.  After I went back for my one week check up, she told me that the gas they put in my eye had really caused my cataract to grow rapidly.  I am basically blind in my right eye right now.  Got to go back to see the surgeon again tuesday.  She has already sent me to a dr. that will remove the cataract...I got to go for preop the 28th of this month.  I hope the removal of the cataract will give me at least some of my sight back.  I am trying to get what I have obligated myself to do done before the next surgery.  

My depth perception is screwed up.  I was unloading some logs off my trailer and got two of my deck boards along with one of the logs.  Deck needed replaced, but I just was not ready to do it just yet.  Banjo

I just turned 51, and have always had perfect vision until about a year ago, one eye or the other blurry at times, cant read writing on bottom of tv screen at times because its blurry and so on. I read this topic a little over a week ago and saw you mentioned a reds 2, i'd never heard of it. I looked into it a little and picked up the equate brand of it at walmart to give it a try. I can actually see better and tell a difference after only a few days of taking it.

 Rita had cataract surgery on her left eye on monday. Wow what a difference! She went from almost not seeing to 20-25. I am so happy for what the eye surgeon's can do these days. She'll get the right one done on the 25th. Probably see better than me then  thumbs-up.

Yes, it sure makes a difference. Especially notice the improvement now while deer hunting. ;)
