Well the eye doc told me today that my MRI showed no optic nerve damage - yea! Wants to do a new procedure for my glaucoma. He’s getting the new equipment in in a few days to do the procedure. It stretches the drain in the eye before they insert the stint. I came home and researched it!!! Sure don’t want to screw up my eye. Everything I could find was about 99% positive. I told him I would be investigating the procedure and he thought that was great. He is one of the top eye surgeons in the Intermountain area. He will do the cataract at the same time. About a four hour procedure for doing both. YeeHaw.
Get the knee scoped next Thursday.
Yup getting older is sooo much fun.

Sounds like good news is about to happen. At 80 I am fully aware of the new golf clubs I have bought for doctors. Just in co-pays

I "Feel for You"... I've got a lense implant in my "sight-eye", cataract removed from both... Artificial left hip (that's a "TOTAL", upper & lower hip replacement... Hell, the hip was done 21 or 22 years ago!!!)

I was just hearing something on the radio today about a new "noninvasive" procedure for replacing knees. ? I don't know how that can be noninvasive, but I'd sure look into it.
I've had my own share of eye surgeries and procedures and the thing I've found is that they generally sound way worse than they actually are. Pretty amazing what those retinologists can do to you and you still be able to see at all, much less better than ever. Good luck with it, and I hope all goes well.

Gettin old and being old is no fun as you say, but consider the other option.

Good luck. I have to say I feel sorry for the ducks and elk next year. Not much gets by you now. New eyes and knees, you’ll be good for another 100,000.

When you pass 80, you never know just bionic you are, or will become! Some of these procedures may just save your life!

For instannce, I sustrained an eye enjury in the first grade, almost lost the left eye, but reoverd with a scar on the lens. Much later, taking a physical for flight training for the USAF, they truned me down and would not give me a flight contract. It could have easily kept me out of the Hanoi Hilton!

Just a random chance, not what I wanted, but what I got. An Optometrist told me in my 50's to lie down as flat as I could, look just over my eyelid and what could I see? Well I could see very plainly, he then said when I had my cataracts removed later in life, it would restore my vision by taking off that scar! It did, but too late for a flying contract! Not only that but i have two titanium knee joints and still cant walk very well. Just Sayin....RJS

Had eye surgery several years back to remove cataracts all went well a little star at night in the lights, good luck.
My Dad used to tell me "getting old ain't for sissies" he was right.

Told the wife after last back surgery, when I pass don't bury me just scrap me out for used parts.
