Marybeth and Joan

thanks for that information. I had no idea about the water issue and now will check with the doctor. He knows I have a CI but never mentioned the water issue.

I had cornea surgery last month on both eyes.  The day after tomorrow I have a follow up appointment to discuss upcoming cataract surgeries.  Please explain the usage of water during the cataract surgeries, and any questions that I should ask during the appointment.  I wear two Sonnet 2s.  Thanks very much.  

@JohnLgood luck with your surgery.

I must admit I don’t know how the water was used because the anesthesia they give makes you able to hear instructions but you forget what happened!  I told my ophthalmologist that I wore a CI and all the nurses that were attending. They said not to worry. I also wore a water wear on my sonnet just to be sure. I had no issue whatsoever. Good luck with your surgery
