I'm new here. This forum is an amazing resource. I've learned a lot reading other posts.
I'm 38 and my mom is 74. Just before Covid lockdowns started my mom needed to renew her driver's license. I brought her to the local Costco optometrist for new glasses. The optometrist said she had cataracts and would need surgery. My mom still passed her driver's eye exam but stopped driving. It's now been over a year (I've been doing all errands since) and she's scared to see an ophthalmologist for evaluation because she read she will need topical antibotics after the surgery. She is very allergic to antibotics. When she was a teenager she was hospitalized for a year due to the allergy and doctors not diagnosing her correctly. I can understand her anxiety over the thought of antibotics but I don't want her going blind. Any others have experience getting cataract surgey with an allergy to antibotics? Thanks for reading this. Any advice is appreciated.
