GWPotter: I have an appointment in early August to schedule cataract surgery. Guess this is the 'Year of the Eye' so to speak.

If your cataract surgery is the same as mine, it was simple, fast, and painless. In my case they put drops in my eye to numb it, and then inserted (from the side) a small probe (not unlike a concrete stirrer I have seen) which pulverizes the lens. Then they insert (through the same opening) a plastic lens, which is all folded up. It unfurls, and Viola! New eye! Couldn't drive home because the eye had been super dilated for the operation.
