I’ve cataract & waiting to remove it in a procedure which then hopefully get my sight into perfect and not more myopia, which MIL did & she’s so proud to hv no more worries. Looking fwd.
Same for my parents. They had their cataracts removed a couple of years ago. But they were about 80 when they had it done - long way more for me.
My MIL was just recommended to undergo this surgery and remove the cataract. Any thing I should take note of? Doesn't seem like a complicated procedure from what the doctor explained..

Simple procedure. Day surgery. Just ensure some is with her to hold on to her belongings & bring her home.

Thank you. Nothing to be worried about I guess. Over worry some times.

Don’t worry. Spore has one of the best medical care. Govt also take care of elderly healthcare needs to alleviate heavy expenses, esp for those Pioneer citizens.

I'm not sure if there are really meds now that can help slow down myopia (otherwise i would get some), but if you really want to manage your daughter's myopia, the safest option is to have her eyes checked yearly by an ophthalmologist. In my case, I went to see Dr Steve Seah who recommended I wear glasses that will help correct my astigmatism. A year later i went back for another checkup and was told that I can already wear contacts (no more astigmatism). :)
