I have cataracts and im already scared to drive much since my accident, but need to start. The problem is that my eyesight is getting progressovely duller and i just dont see that well anymore. Last year i went to an optometrist in the clinic I go to in order to get new lenses and I told them my eyesight keeps getting worse so they eye tested me. Without glasses i did very poorly but with my glasses on I eaked out 20/20 which surprised me. Seriously shocked me, actually. I still see hazy and dull, even in glasses so I asked if I could see an optometrist for surgery. The Optometrist told me the surgery wont be covered if I still test 20/20 in my glasses, even if I cant drive or see at night or if i cant find things that ate laying on a desk if they are both of similar color. I can only see a blurry without my glasses. Im not happy. I feel id be more confident of driving and other areas if i had surgery and I am not afraid to have it. I am ready to fake my eye test this year so that I can get a referral to an Ophamalogist. I feel kind of sneaky and dirty planning to fake my test. Has anypne else had a similar problem? I would rather do it on the up and up but its about insurance. My first insurance is Medicare. Anyone else run into this? I really cant see well at all anymore. Even with glasses on ALL the time, i have to squint if its top bright and cant see much at night. My sight has been deteriorating since I turned sixty. What a pain !!#@%!
