Cataract surgery

My son will be 6 this September. He was recently diagnosed with congenital cataracts. They're pretty cloudy and impairing his vision enough to need surgery.



Anyone else been through this? Advice?

take a deep breath, it's not so bad......I have had the surgery myself and my daughter (with Down syndrome) has had the same surgery for a slightly different type of congenital cataracts. The hardest part is keeping fingers away from itchy post surgery eyes and putting steroid drops in after surgery because they sting/burn. the surgery itself is a breeze!
