Today, I’m going to the eye specialist to pick up Chico’s pre-op medications. For three days prior to the surgery, Chico must get three different types of eye drops several times a day, as well as oral antibiotics the night before. One of the eye drops, a strong steroid, costs $109. Chico’s actually been getting these drops since the day he received his retina test.
Today, I’ll also get a new estimate for the cost of the surgery since Chico is now only getting the cataracts in his right eye removed.
