The following Monday, my ophthalmologist told me that I had a posterior, subcapsular <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cataract</span>
which, I'm told, is quite aggressive. I was told I was not a cand
idate for a multifocal lens, and
was given a monofocal lens on 12/20/07. During the procedure, the IV sedation failed, as my IV had infiltrated and
was not checked by the NA. Since I went through the procedure with only topical & intraocular anesthetics, I was able to hear everything that went on.
