Basically FOLLOW-UP cataract surgery — on my RIGHT eye; my bad eye. We always knew that this was the eye that was going to be challenging.
I had cataract surgery on it, by the AMAZING Dr. Theodor Sauer of OCB, i.e., Ophthalmic Consultants of Boston, on December 7, 2020. Wow. As I detailed here, for the first time in 52-years I could see out of that eye without glasses or contacts.
But, it was NOT perfect. The LEFT eye, which I had done 12-days earlier, is near perfect.
We did NOT expect the same results from the right eye.
I saw Dr. Sauer this last Monday, January 4, 2021. He thinks he can IMPROVE on the right eye.
So, I am having SURGERY again this coming Monday, January 11, 2021.
He is going to open my eye & get to the implanted lens. Then he is going to rotate it 15 degrees. I forgot to ask him in what direction. Doesn’t matter to I. He knows. I trust him — implicitly.
Wow. I am excited.
Well I will keep you posted.
My Cataract Surgeries, By Dr. Theodor Sauer Of OCB (Boston), Pretty Close To Miraculous — My Best Vision In 52-Years!
I had both eyes done 12-days apart.
Dr. Theodor Sauer
I am uncharacteristically lost for words to adequately describe
his brilliance, CARING & dedication.
For health reasons you cannot donate used contact lenses. I looked.
I can see AGAIN!
I can actually see & read things without contact lenses or glasses. I have not been able to do that in over 52-years! 52-years. That is a longtime.
This is the BEST VISION I have had since I was 14-years old. I am in awe.
Dr. Theodor Sauer is a genius. A magician. I am in awe of his skills & his traits as a caring, compassionate human being. Wow. He is a GOOD MAN. Salt of the Earth.
He worked Thanksgiving morning so folks like I could have surgery the day before (given that OCB insists on a post-op check-up the day after surgery). He has called me at 9am on Saturday & at 6:30pm in the evening. He cares. He is dedicated. He is brilliant.
I lucked out. I did not pick him. OCB, i.e., Ophthalmic Consultants of Boston, never gave me a chance. He was assigned to I & I could NOT be gladder. I lucked out. I won the lottery.
No pain, not even any discomfort! Did NOT have to take any pills after surgery. Both eyes GREAT.
He also has two amazing support staff: Jessica J. & Carla A. They were both outstanding. So helpful, so patient. I lucked out.
I found OCB on the Web. I wanted my eyes ‘done’ in Boston. SMILE.
I called them, for the first time, on September 10, 2020. They told me I had to go 3-weeks without contact lenses in either eye. Based on that they got me an appointment with Dr. Sauer on October 1, 2020.
88-days from 1st phone call to having my 2nd eye done!
Not even 3-months. Some places in New Hampshire couldn’t get me in for my preliminary appointment for 3-months.
Am I happy? Am I glad? Am I excited? It is nice to be able to see.
Second time in 20-months that I have totally & utterly lucked out with surgeons. March 2019 was when I needed my emergency quadricep tendon tear surgery. That time I was assigned Dr. Charles Blitzer. He also did magic & I honestly thought I would never, ever encounter a doctor as good as Dr. Blitzer. Then I was assigned Dr. Sauer. Has to be Karma. I was due some, but I seem to have been rewarded in buckets.
So, when it comes to OCB all I have is praise, kudos, admiration, respect & THANKS. I can’t recommend or endorse them any higher. I lucked out.

Trying To Get A RAPID COVID-19 Test In New Hampshire Appears More Difficult That Trying To Castrate An Angry Bull Elephant.
At 2pm TODAY they called to say I need a negative COVID test BEFORE they will schedule the bloody surgery. They basically give me 24-hours.
We (i.e., two of us) start checking on the Web & calling around. Some folks were VERY NICE BUT there was NO WAY they could get me test results that quickly.
I got in the car & drove to a facility.
They told me to come back at 8am tomorrow & they will SEE what they can do. I also have a 1pm appointment in Wolfeboro, at Huggins Hospitals, BUT it is not certain they can get me the results ahead of bloody Wednesday.
I am far from bloody amused.
This has become a frigging bloody joke. Well, I will keep you posted. It will be bloody FUNNY if I test positive.
