Hi, my father-in-law is 75 with a cataract in his right eye and now lately doctor says this has contributed to
a lazy eye condition as well. The doctor - near Albany, NY - has stated there is nothing my father-in-
law can do to correct this. He lives @150 miles from any family member and now is afraid to drive. He
will be homebound soon.
Is this true? Is this because of the age of the person? I have looked at other pieces of info which suggest
getting the cataract fixed and then using the patch on the other eye to force the lazy eye to work.
Appreciate any comments. Thanks much,
Much concerned daughter-in-law
