I couldn't read the TiVo screen blurbs. I couldn't see the clock at the pool. I couldn't thread a needle even with magnifying glasses.
After my first one came out everything got significantly better but I still had to have glasses for most everything.
My doctor was not inclined to remove the second one. The only reason I could really get out of her was that it wasn't bad enough yet. ??? I insisted and she did and wow.
I was threading a needle with ease this morning and remembering all my 'can I see this' tests. I see it all now and more. I can easily ascertain which end of the garbage bag is the sealed end and which one is the one that opens. The clock and TiVo are no brainers now. I took all the glasses, old, new, drugstore, prescription - all to the Goodwill ages ago.
It's great to be able to see everything but I think it's even better to have such a sharp comparison of then and now. I'm so glad I didn't wait. Both eyes together cost me about $1K out of pocket. Had I waited another year and a half it would have cost me nothing. I'm so glad I didn't wait.
Today is swim class at noon which a short stop beforehand at Walgreens. Nothing else really on the schedule. Bears and baseball.
