If I want to go back to when I was 5 or so I had eye surgery for my eye. It never took -cross eye. It made me shy and afraid to do different things. I can not make anything out now in my left eye.

That is good to hear, good for you, what a gift. Sometimes things really work out well, it is weird how this procedure can be a problem for some people. Nothing better exemplifies  that we are all different!

Having my gall bladder out was wonderful.  I used to be doubled over for hours because of the pain.

 

The worst surgery was LASIK.  It ruined my eyesight. Not everyone has a good outcome from this procedure. Thank goodness I don't have everyday pain as some others do, but I need to wear a very expensive prosthetic hybrid contact lens or I am legally blind in one eye.  I only had one eye done, thankfully.

A cataract clouds your natural eye lens.  It's like looking though a dirty, foggy  window.  The new replaced lens is clear and you can see better.  In addition, the new lens can have your eyeglass prescription, much like a contact lens.

 

It can make a big difference in your vision.

  @Carmie  I sure do remember the gall bladder attacks. I did not know what was wrong and a dopey Dr told me that I was too emotional!! The pain was excruciating. Finally a Dr correctly diagnosed me and what it was. I had attacks for 8 hours at a time.
