    How did your eye surgery go?

    Hoping that everything's clear as a bell, and you have a quick and uncomplicated recovery.

    What eye surgery? What have I missed?

    Whatever it is, I hope you Fran are doing well and that you have a quick and complete recovery.

    Love, Esther

    You are so thoughtful trinity.
    Esther, it's corrective eye surgery. Nothing serious. My vision changed to the point that night driving and long distance driving were much more
    difficult. That and if I were reading and looked at the TV my vision was quite blurry.
    They do the same surgery as for cataracts except they insert something called a crystal lens.
    I can see distance perfectly with no glasses or contact lens. It was amazingly simple, pain free and quick.
    I'm so excited to wake up at night and be able to see the time on the clock.
    I am just not allowed to bend over or lift anything for 24 hrs, then back to normal life. I can even fly on Sunday.

    Wow! Eye surgery that gives you the ability to fly! That's really something! :rofl:
    Okay all kidding aside, glad your surgery went well, Fran.

    Fran, thanks for the update. I'm glad to hear that the surgery went well. It must be strange and wonderful to be able to see clearly in situations where you couldn't before.

    Fran I'm glad the surgery went so well. I would give anything to be able to correct my eyes so I didn't have to wear both bifocal contacts AND readers but was told that it won't work for astigmatism. The night driving bothers me a lot too.

    Too bad Nancy. I don't really know the criteria. I started out thinking laser surgery since I didn't know anything about
    crystalens. The secondary gain is that I won't ever get cataracts.
    Modern science keeps moving forward.
