Butch Patrick, the famous Kid star "Eddie" on the Munsters TV show was diagnosed with cataracts.
(Vocus) May 11, 2010 -- As Butch Patrick was driving on a rainy evening in Beverly Hills he found it difficult to see the road signs and found the headlights of cars bothering his eyes more than usual. He even had difficulty reading the cue cards,and in spite of his reading glasses and bright lights found it difficult to read the menu at the Stinking Rose. While admiring paintings he felt that the colors appear washed. He decided to see Beverly Hills Cataract specialist Dr. Khanna. After a thorough exam Dr. Khanna said, "Butch, you got a cataract in your eye." The munster had a munster in his eye.
In normal eyes the natural lens would be clear and be able to change it's shape while allowing all the light to pass.But When a person develops cataracts the fibers of the lens become too numerous and accumulate too much water. The lens becomes more rigid and hazy. The good news is patients no longer have to wait for the cataract to become white or mature. Today, patients are scheduled for surgery when the cataract starts to affect activities like driving, working, or reading. Dr. Khanna than proceeded to measure the shape and the length of the eye to calculate the exact power of the lens needed for for forthcoming cataract surgery. The latest and most accurate method in measuring the length of the eye is the IOl master, which was used to measure Butch's eye.
