My wife who is only 43 years old had a cataract removed 1 year ago\nsuccessfully and now has to have a cataract removed from the other eye. She\nalso has to have a quick laser procedure on the first implanted eye for a\nclouding effect. Both cataracts were very fst developing, little over 18\nmonths in both instances.The only other person that we have been able to\nfind who has had cataract's develop at this young of an age is her half\nbrother who had a single cataract removed several years ago. He is 2-years\nold than my wife.\nShe would like to converse with other people who have also had this\nexperience at such a young age since the emotional and work related issues\ninvolved are different for a 40 something person than for a 60 or 70\nsomething person. In our city most seniors wait upto 2 years for their\ncataract surgery becasue of hospital budget problems while we been fortunate\nto be able to travel 200km's to a different city where she has gotten both\noperations within 1 month of her initial appointment.
