Hi can someone help me.i already receive pips.they dropped my care component to middle rate.i appealed but it stayed this same.now I have bad cataracts in both eyes and my vision has git worse in last 4 months.i have just had my assessment on my eyes and have been told I may have to wait up to 10 weeks before I can have one eye done.i have great difficulty watching tv,I cannot read properlyunless the words can be made bigger.all I can see is a footy mist.pips say I am capable of cooking for myself.i cannot do that now because I can’t judge where to put things or to use my cooker as I drop plates and nearly burnt myself as I couldn’t see the flames on the cooker.i nearly chopped my fingers off when cutting vegetables so now my husband has had to take over doing all the cooking. Although my pips doesn’t run out until 2020 is it worth informing them about my eyes.i don’t know what they do.i appreciate any advise.thank you
