Hello, new to the group. Thanks. Oct. 16, I'll have surgery on my right eye - cataract. Duke Eye Center, Durham NC. Old school style, not laser, Medicare - so just the most basic lens replacement. I've got a Central Retina Vein Occlusion situation in my left eye, much of its vision will probably never return. Idea ( "eye"dea?) was to make the one good eye (right) as good as possible. Thing is: I won't have my left eye to rely on much after surgery. Worried mostly about driving. My vision is (has been for decades) really bad in both eyes, very strong myopic prescription. AND I have astigmatism. What are the chances that my right eye (the being operated on) will improve enough to drive a few days after surgery? I expect the vision to improve enough to make my current eyeglass prescription useless. I'm pretty sure that there is no way for Medicare / medicaid to pay for the astigmatism to be corrected. Thanks for any help.
