cataract instead of iridectomy

I went for another opinion. This doctor said I don't need a cataract
surgery right away, but will at some point. He said he could do the
iridectomy for the narrow angle lens but if I have a cataract surgery
now, I won't need any other surgery. He said a cataract will do the
same thing that an iradectomy would do.....widening the space for
the fluid, I guess. He's got some really good credentials and he
did draw a picture and give me the options without pressure. I
am booked for surgery next month. I think I made the right
decision...hope so. I don't have but a very small cataract started.
The other eye I've had cataract surgery in two years ago.

Sounds like a good doctor and sounds like you made the right decision.
