    Sammm, all those negative waves!
    All over a guy who probably chased a dream, studied hard at great expense for 10 years to get where he wanted to be and is now reaping the rewards of his skills and investment.

    I think your issue might be with the medical system rather than the guy.

    Is this in reference to the lung issue? Ophthalmologist can infer a lot of what is going on in the body by the health of the eye and its tissues. Issues unrelated to the eye affect the eye, Additionally they need to establish a base line as they administer treatment.
    IE: What if treatment adversely affects vision?
    Ask lots of questions and have a second set of ears encase you miss something.
    Good Luck

    For God's sake! You are old (like me).
    You have two options:
    A, deal with health problems.
    B, Die.

    I get it, you don't have the best insurance coverage, maybe none, but I know plenty of people like you take advantage of government programs to pay for what they can't.
    An optimist is usually wrong, and when the unexpected happens is unprepared. A pessimist is usually right, when wrong, is delighted, and well prepared.

    Yeah, I guess y'all are right. I'm just nervous as Hell about getting those cataracts worked on.

    Cataract surgery is so commonplace, I wouldn't worry about it Sam. After it's done you'll be thinking, I wish I had this done ages ago!

    Agreed

    Probably the EASIEST medical procedure you will ever have.

    I probably know 20 people that have had cataract surgery none had problems post operation and all said things like "Damn I forgot how blue the sky was"

    How many trips have you made to get metal/pieces/parts, etc or to look at metal for your gantry crane project? Plus any trips to get the parts to fix the tractor the gantry is needed for. I am pretty sure operating on the eye is just as complicated as you are making this project.
