Eye Sea U
I am getting cataract surgery on my right eye in a couple of weeks. Two weeks after that the Dr. will do the left eye. He says that after the surgery I will not need my glasses to see at a distance. At best, I will only need glasses for reading and maybe not even that.
I go my first pair of glasses when I was about 15 years old. I began wearing them all the time when I was in my early 20's. I have been wearing glasses continuously for the last 40 years. I am so use to wearing glasses that sometimes I have to put my hands up to my eyes to be sure that I have them on.
I have mixed emotions about not needed to wear glasses. They have been a part of me for so long that I feel that something is missing if I don't have them on. I suppose a psychologist will say that I am hiding behind my glasses and maybe I am, but so what. And I guess I could always wear glasses even if I don't need them, but that seems kind of dumb.
So, being able to see again will be nice. The jury is still out on not having to wear glasses.
