Hey ranchhand I have not seen you here for a while. Not that I see much but I am told by the eye quick that she can now fix that she says that the retina specialist gave her the go ahead to take out the cataracts and replace the lens in my with artificial lens. I go tomorrow for measurement of the lens.
Hope all of yours are doing good.

Have fun with that. Really does help. I had both eyes worked on a few years back. Hurt like hell for a while afterwards. But I didn't realize that they put in corrective lenses. I just thought it would be standard lenses and that my vision would remain the same.

I don't require glasses now to drive. Have all my life. Near sighted is putting it mildly. Someone gets a 1.5" medicine bottle and can't read the fine print they didn't need a magnifying glass at all - just hand it to me. No problem. But really couldn't see much past the end of my arm.

Now I still have slight astigmatism. And actually require mild reading glasses. Can't read the ultra fine print any more. But being able to actually see detail from a long ways is actually pretty damned nice.

So I hope it goes great for you.

Life has been a bit tough lately and just haven't felt all that sociable. More than my normal Grumpy Geezer self.

Felt it was better to just be quiet.

good to hear that things have picked up a bit.
I am doing good for my age, one of my girl friends came for coffee this morning and brought the good lady and I a box of strawberry's, got a hug and kiss when she left that is one of positive things about getting old.
