This is amazing!
In the past 3-4 weeks, I have had cataract surgery on both eyes, first the right and then — 2 days ago — the left. My days are temporarily ruled by a schedule of putting drops in my eyes, but, oh, the clear vision that I have is absolutely wonderful.
It’s all good. It is definitely all good!
It’s been a lifelong odyssey — from not being able to read what was written on the blackboard in first grade, being fitted with my first pair of glasses when I was 7 years old, first contact lenses when I was 19 years old, and finally dealing with a combination of contact lenses, bifocals and reading glasses from age 49 onward.
I feel a sense of liberation. I was advised against the multiplex lenses, so I will still use reading glasses. But to be able to see well otherwise, with no glasses and no contact lenses, feels very freeing.
So, here’s looking at you — at age 7, wearing my first pair of glasses, wire rims and all. That was my life, from thence forward, but now, no more.
It is definitely all good!
