Anyone been diagnosed with this?

Nurses General Nursing


I had an eye exam today to test to see if I was OK to be in a room with lasers in the OR. Well, the doc told me that I have Posterior polar cataracts. I don't know much about this, I was just wondering if there were any nurses that worked in opthamology that could help me out to better understand this; the doc was kinda freaking me out. Or if anyone has this, feel free to share. Thanks.
