Broadway 825-7] by Linda Lawrence, M.D. Ophthalmologist Surgery 8 Diseases of the Eye SEEING CATARACTS THROUGH THE PATIENT'S EYES The decision to elect to undergo cataract surgery is largely a subjective one. For some people, cataracts may develop slowly and never reach the point where they interfere with a person's job or lifestyle. Others may find that lens clouding is sufficient enough to disrupt reading, driving, or recreational activities to warrant .surgery at a relatively early age. Studies of populations show that 15 percent of the 50-to-85-year-old age group have lens clouding to the degree that their visual acuity is reduced. Although lens clouding can be detected in 40 percent of people aged 55 to 64 years, and 75 percent of those aged 65 to 74 years, not all suffer significant vision loss. P.S. This is the first article in our continuing series on cataract surgery. PraMntodby Richard A. Shillcutt Admlnlttntor CAREGIVING AS SHARED TIME Rather than looking upon caring for their frail and elderly parents as a burden, middle-aged children are encouraged to see caregiving as an opportunity for personal growth. The time shared with parents can be used to examine long-standing conflicts from a new perspective. Older children who find themselves caring for their elderly parents often find it brings up issues of their own unmet needs as children. The feelings generated by these circumstances (such as anger or mourning for what might have been) should be recognized in an attempt to resolve them. This can be accomplished either through discussions between parent and child or through counseling. This effort can result in a new level of understanding and a sense of intimacy. Caring for an elderly parent provides an opportunity to explore personal issues and possible conflicts that may lead to a better relationship.
