Eye surgery

It’s difficult to write this, as the left eye is very blurry and the other is pretty clear. The one-eyed man and all that. Post-op conversation with the surgeon revealed that the left-eye cataracts were thick and required some unusual work to remove. So he was glad I was under full anesthesia. He installed a thin cover over the new lens which may fall out after a few days or wait until he removes it next week. Blurriness will continue for about four more days. Otherwise I should be seeing better soon and best after a prescription for new glasses. At least I won’t be gradually going blind from cataracts. So the future looks bright and I’ll have to wear shades. So to speak.
