So have you had it done yet Zztop ? I'm not sure they have healing products -that work- hidden (for the sake of making money) as thought or said by a number of people... I ended up believing it wasn't right, and that there would be a real will too to make it happen if there were possibilities to avoid surgery (but that there wasn't still)... My case was getting too bad, and it was dangerous to go on like this. I had come across an ophthalmologist that had had cataract surgery done for him, and that helped taking the step too I believe. I went to the hospital (he sent me there) as things appeared to be suitable enough. Where I live in Europe I had it done for free and it wasn't too bad ; I can see better than before surgery - but it's not as 'good' as it was before I started loosing some vision - (however at night it's good, even better than it had ever been I believe, but daylight and reading are not good enough, especially reading which is very disappointing)...But I had a terrible vision since I was born anyway, so not significant for most many I guess ! The good thing, I don't have to wear spectacles (or contact lenses) to get nearer far-vision-level I used to have in my better days (with glasses), as I now have 'onboard' lenses for that... But not able to read even with glasses is a bummer (I need a magnifying glass for usual typed letters from magazines, ordinary books, and smaller)... Still good to have had it done. It could have been better but that will do (it has to)...Had to withstand quite an ordeal however.
