My husband had his cataract operation today and is home again. We were waiting around for four hours before he went to surgery and that was tiresome with me having to stop him from getting dressed many times and constantly answering the many questions as to why we were there. He was drowsy for quite a while after the op and that was the easiest time. Once he was more alert then the problems started with him removing the eye patch and pulling at the needle in his hand. Now he's home I'm just having to watch him and stop him from rubbing his eye. Even with the patch on he manages to get his finger to his eye. I can only do my best.
