Hi there. I had mine done last year through Eye Associates NW at Evergreen Hospital, one in July and one in August. By FAR the worst thing I encountered was the patch I had over night.
I don't know how bad your cataracts are (mine were nearly opaque), but you will probably be amazed at how much difference it makes. If your doctor is skilled at this procedure I would be more excited than worried. I normally see a retinologist and he would not do it. He had my opthomologist do it and I could not be happier. It literally and truly changed my life. No exaggeration in that at all.
