Perhaps one of the more gratifying things - in terms of what I do - is cataract surgery. Patients come in. They don't see well. Their quality of life is affected significantly - maybe they can't read and pay their bills properly. They can't read their own mail that they get. They can't drive the car. They can't function independently. So a lot of times, by doing cataract surgery, we can restore their independence. Years ago we used to patch the eye after cataract surgery, and it was a very gratifying feeling when they come in, you take the patch off, and they're like, Wow, I can see again. Nowadays, because of the advances in the technology, we tend not to patch the eye, and they start seeing right when they get off the operating table. What I try to tell my patients is that you have to tell me how bad the cataract is bothering you. It's not my decision to tell you it's time to do surgery. I can educate you whether I think it will be a significant benefit or a mild to moderate benefit, but it's a decision that we make together to see how it will improve the quality of life.Read more
