A BOOK ABOUT CATARACTS FOR PEOPLE WITH CATARACTS. NO COMPLEX MEDICAL TERMINOLOGY! - from one of America's Most Compassionate Doctors, Dr. David Richardson Why YOU NEED This Cataract Surgery Book It's a curious thing. People with cataracts often have very poor vision, making it difficult for them to read. And yet, their physicians typically ask them to sift through stacks of educational pamphlets and paperwork on cataracts. The documents are often single-spaced with small print and thin margins - in short, a nightmare for someone with cataracts. What's more, the information is oozing with hard-to-understand medical jargon and procedural terminology. I really want my cataract patients to have an entirely different experience. That's why I went to work on "So, You've Got a Cataract?" This is a book about cataracts for people with cataracts. My goal is to provide the information you need to learn about your eye's condition and to make good, safe decisions about treatment. The book covers, in a language that anyone can understand, basic information about how the eye works and what is useful to know about a cataract. If you are considering modern cataract surgery, you'll find most of what you need to know within the pages of this book. You'll learn what happens during the actual procedure and what to expect afterwards. The larger page size and Kindle eBook format were specifically chosen for this project as they allow for enlarging the text size making it easier for those with poor vision to read. Buy a Book.
