Had Cataract Surgery Today

Wow.....have they ever improved that procedure from days of old when my Mom had it done!! Just had left eye done as right cataract was so mild that my ophthalmologist suggested doing only left eye at this time. Amazing how vision clarity along with colors appearing sharper instantaneously occurred!!

I had both eyes done last August and September and had lens implants for multi distances. I now only need reading glasses for close up and I killed a deer and an elk without wearing glasses for the first time since my late 30s. I only thought I knew what the color white was till I had the surgery.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

My wife had both eyes done about two years ago. Problem is she now sees all too well. I thought you swept the garage floor, what is that on your shirt, are you really going to leave that...like that........etc. etc.......

I was the first of 11 cataract surgeries they did today. Hopefully, I will now be able to better see those BIG Sullivan County racks this season that were previously slipping by me!!

Maybe you will be able to see that there was no evidence of collusion?

Hope you see an improvement. I didn't think you chased those racks much anymore. I thought you were too busy fishing.

I get both my eyes done next month. Iíve wore contact lenses for the last 20+ years....Iím really excited about ditching the contacts after the lens implant. These last 2 hunting seasons have been a struggle with my vision, my eyesight for many years was better than 20/20. Last season my wife was seeing deer before I spotted them. Thatís bad. Iím going moose hunting again this year and this hunt is all about glassing....spot one a mile or two out and go after them. In the past, I could always find as many or more bulls as my guide did. If I didnít get my vision fixed, Iíd have to bring my wife along to help find me a moose.

Ya wouldn't want that. You will be glad you had it done.
