    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.
