Just had the first of two cataract eye surgeries. Apparently it went well according to the Doc. She was delighted that the next day I could read all but the fine print on a wall chart without my glasses.

Really looking forward to getting the other eye done as soon as they can accommodate me. I want my long range "Hawk eyes" back!

She referred to herself and her team as "The Smurfs" due to their blue scrubs. I told her I would never have used that term as I had too much respect for her skills and those of the nurses.

After my post-op check up, I extended my hand to her and said - "That's not good enough". I pulled her in for a hug before I started to blubber .....

God bless the people with these skills and thank God I live in a country where this is covered by our national health program.

I had both eyes done. One in Jan and the other in Feb. I now have 20/20 and 25/20 vision - I love it! Reading, however, went to the dogs and reading glasses are a must now - ALL the time.

Good luck with your second surgery.

 My results were incredible. I had one eye done on January 2, 2014 and the other on January 15, 2014. I can drive, shoot and read everything but small print without prescription glasses.

Had a post-op check done yesterday and the eye with the new lens was pronounced 20/20!

I find the eye gets tired by the end of the day and I need to wear my glasses for reading or the computer, but I can live with that. It's my right eye that still needs the prescription.
There is still some swelling and I'm light sensitive, but that is to be expected within a week of the surgery. 'Dr. Mom' is perpetually after me with one of three drops, a regimen that will last for three weeks. Two anti-inflammatory and one antibiotic.

I've been doing some wood working and a couple of days ago I burned up 100 rds of .45 ACP, shooting while on the move and out to 25m in single draw & fire exercise just wearing wrap around sun glasses and not my prescription. Even shot weak handed with no issues.

Now I'm chomping at the bit for the next surgery ..... life is good!
