Things have been CRAZY around here!!
Yesterday my Hubs went for cataract surgery at The Laurel Eye Clinic, Laurel Laser & Surgery Center, in Brookville, Pennsylvania.
We had to get up at 5:00AM to get to Brookville for his 8:00 appointment. It is only an hour an a half from where we live, but I like to get up, get my bath, eat my breakfast yada yada yada!!
So he had the choice of 2 different lens. The regular and the cadilac version that they called The Crystal Lens. Of course, he chose the cadilac version that ended up costing us $5,000 extra. That will be for both eyes. He has another appointment February 20, 2013 to get the second eye done.
His Doctor is Louis D. "Skip" Nichamin, MD
He is the medical director of the Laurel Eye Clinic and the Laurel Eye Laser & Surgery Center. Has an unusually broad surgical experience, including extensive experience performing viteroretinal ophthalmic surgery.
We went to him especially because my Hubs had PRK ( photorefractive keratectomy ), done on his eyes and not just anyone will do cataract surgery after this kind of operation on the eye. Dr Nichamin is qualified to do this... so that is why we went to Brookville.
The surgery went great and all is well but today, I had to be the driver to get my Hubs to the eye doctor who will be taking care of his check ups. We go to Dr Scott Kennedy who has an office in Oil City, Pennsylvania and also an office in Titusville, Pennsylvania.
Scott has been my eye Doctor off and on for well over 30 years. We have moved and gone elsewhere.... but I always end up going back to Scott Kennedy even when we have to drive a long distance. He is the only optomitrist that is able to get my prescription right in my glasses and contacts.
It was snowing and blowing today and I had to drive my Hubs big arsed truck. I would almost rather take a beating than drive that truck.
Anyway, I got him there and all looks good.
Now we have to do it all again the end of February!!
