Here’s a story with a beginning, a middle and a very happy ending.
My vision had slowly changed. Everything had become darker and duller and out of focus.
I knew what it was, I had cataracts and although I didn’t relish the idea, it was bad enough that I was ready to do something about it.
So a few days ago I was lying on a table, under a big sheet, in surgery, surrounded by people in pale green tops and pants, nets covering their hair and masks over their faces. 10 minutes for each eye. Yep, it was that fast. In well under an hour I was out, cataracts removed and brand new lenses in place.
On the morning before this was how the world looked.
And on the next, it looked like this.
Really. It was that dramatic. It was amazing. It is amazing. Everything so clear and clean and bright. The colors deep and subtle and rich. Tiny little details crisp and easily visible.
Wow and Wow and Wow again. Thank you modern medicine!
