So what about your ability to drive? From what you say, I do not particularly want to be on the road with you now. Do you think you can pass the driver's eye exam? If you got into an accident you could easily be sued for deliberately not taking action to see well enough to drive. Even if the accident were technically not your fault, you might have a difficult time showing that in court.

I have had cataract surgery in both eyes, and it was really easy, but somewhat disturbing to have somebody cutting on your eye while you are still conscious. I asked for more and more tranquilizers.

Do not do both eyes at the same time, since you will not be able to see well for a few days after the operation.
