So, yesterday I went to the eye doc and had a cataract removed. I’ll be undergoing the same procedure on my other eye in two weeks.
Reading and typing aren’t the easiest things to do right now, but at least I can see clearly out of my right eye again. I have a follow-up appointment this afternoon, and hopefully when the doc checks my peepers he’ll give me a clean bill of health. As it is, my eyes have been the bane of my existence ever since I was a little kid. Horrible eyesight. Always wearing glasses. It almost kept me out of the Army, and DID keep me out of the Marines. But it is what it is. I couldn’t change anything about it back then, so I shouldn’t bitch too hard. The side-benefit of having this surgery now is that they replaced my old, defective lens with a new corrective lens, so I won’t have to wear glasses or contacts any more. Just reading glasses, which I already required when I was wearing glasses anyway.
I’m currently wearing a clear plastic shield over my right eye, making me look like a retarded pirate. Hopefully that can come off after my appointment today.
What a fascinating modern age we live in.
