Super Treatment on Super Tuesday

Carolyn was at our house at 6:45am this morning to take Elaine and I down to The Lincoln Surgical Hospital where I had cataract surgery by Dr. Linder. This was an appointment that was made on November 3, 2015. It is really a "mass production process". It is my understanding that they did somewhere between 40 and 50 of such surgeries at this facility today. We were back home by 10:30am where I enjoyed breakfast. They did give me orange juice and a cookie following the procedure. 
I was most favorably impressed with everyone we met at the Hospital and Elaine and Carolyn fit into the pattern of providing excellent treatment. The "escort" who took me to the first station asked if I would prefer a wheel chair. As we rode the elevator, I told her of our baseball trip last spring where Tim had ordered one for use at the airport. I also mentioned being current on having seen games at all 30 parks. When Dr. Linder came in he even asked of my favorite park and team. We had a nice visit about the Kansas City Royals and Alex Gordon. It made for an interesting, relaxing topic which led to personal camaraderie and helped make the process more tolerable. I rested some but spent considerable time this afternoon at the PC on "My Career in the Soil Conservation Service" We go back early tomorrow morning for followup and repeat the process in 2 weeks.

  1. You will be amazed at how well you will see after your cataract surgery! It's similar to wearing contacts and not having to wear glasses. Since I wore contacts before the cataract surgery, the Dr. put in a close vision lens in the eye that I had close vision contacts so I don't have to wear glasses for reading or distance since my right eye is the distance lens. Amazing the technology today!
