a one-eyed woman

Cataract surgery on Wednesday, had my left eye done. I'm now realizing that the new lens is set to the power that I need. I went to work on Friday and I was comparing the lens-wallet card with a couple of co-workers who also have had cataract surgery, I had the strongest lens - 16.0D. Also, I had an additional procedure done to help with astigmatism.

You know you're way over on the other side of the hill when you're comparing cataract-surgery notes with fellow gray-headed folks.

I get the right eye done in a couple of weeks. After wearing eyeglasses for many years, I'm not wearing any now, the prescription is too off now. Seeing to type this is quite difficult. My left eye is healing well although it's gummy sometimes and it's still adjusting.

I can't tell if these photo's taken today are in focus or not. Gonna be interesting until I get my other eye.

Congrats! At least you have some equally experienced folks to compare cataract stories with. Imagine if you worked surrounded by 20-somethings. Glad to hear it went well.

The pictures are perfect! I think I told you that after my first eye was done, I drove around town excited about reading signs and license plates that had been hard to read even with glasses!! It's been a few years, and I still just wear reading glasses, none for distance. Heal fast!!
