Passed my eye exam!
So the eye surgeon today tells me that my vision with the new lenses is superb. Something like 20/10 in the left eye that was done in January and a week out from the surgery the right eye is 20/15. I can see the ittsy bitsy, teeny, tiny line that is second from the bottom with 90% accuracy.
If you will recall, I opted to go a route that changed my eyes from -4.75ish to -2.00ish. I'm still near-sighted, but I can be with friends and not need glasses. At the computer, I don't need glasses. But if I watch TV from across a room, or drive, I need them.
I went this route because I have worn glasses for distance since I was eight and I have a comfort level with having them. I need cheaters for threading needles, but I am no longer Mr. Magoo.
Anyway, I have temporary glasses that make me look like my father. But I can't order real glasses until they release you as a patient after four weeks.
We're be headed to LA this summer for our nieces wedding and I told Donna Lethal that I would teach her to play MahJong and I'll take my lorgnette (yes, I have a lorgnette) along in honor of the event.
