Eye Eye Captain

Well it has been about a week since the second eye was done and by Jove it worked. I’ve been amazed at the change, especially finding out how many times a day I reach up to adjust our remove my glasses only to remember I don’t wear them anymore.

My eyesight was damaged as a small child after a bout measles – no vaccine developed in the 1950’s – thank goodness that changed and kids can be protected.

I am finding that my ‘weak’ eye is gradually contributing more toward my vision – quite a change. Previously it contributed only about 30% of what it should have and now I think it is more like 60%. I am very pleased.

A few more weeks to fully heal and then an eye exam to get some reading glasses and Bob’s your Uncle, done.

Buying new non-prescription sunglasses for the first time. – I could clearly see myself in the mirror while trying them on for the first time ever.


One Eye Spring

Spring officially is here and certainly looks like it outside today! Today was also cataract surgery day one — bloody amazing stuff this. It is too early say it was a total success, that will have to wait a day or two I think as it is hard to get the two eyes to work together after 60 years of wearing high correction glasses. Eye number two scheduled for next week.

The Spring is Sprung Rhyme by Anonymous (Not Ogden Nash)

The spring is sprung, the grass is riz.
I wonder where the boidie is.
They say the boidie’s on the wing.
But that’s absoid. The wing is on the bird.

And now for some Spring music…
