Having Cataract Surgery After Having Had LASIK Surgery

Has anyone had cataract surgery after having had LASIK surgery in the past? I have cataracts now, and had LASIK surgery in 2000. I am being told that there is an issue with getting the right correction for the corrective lenses implanted during cataract surgery, if one had LASIK before. I also understand that some doctors maintain they have solved the problem, but their views might be controversial within the ophthalmology profession. If anyone has any relevant feedback on this, please feel free to blog away about it. Thanks very much.

Don Doody and Clay Shaw

Don Doody (sometimes misspelled as Dooty) was friend of Clay Shaw. Does anyone know his exact relationship with Shaw?

Don Doody served in the Air Force in an intelligence position. He also knew Russian. He had traveled to Cuba, and in 1963, he traveled to Mexico City. For several months before Shaw's death, Doody filled the job of a sitter while Shaw rapidly declined in health.

But does anyone know their real relationship?
