One Down, One To Go

I had cataract surgery on my right eye today. It was a very quick and easy procedure. In fact, I think I even fell asleep during it, if it is possible to sleep with one eye open. Number two will be taken care of in two weeks.

First observation, I didn't realize how yellowish I was seeing white. Now the right eye sees a bright white and the left eye sees a much duller and yellowish white.

First problem - reading the computer screen. I suspect that it will get better with a little more time as the dilation medication wears off, but now my glasses don't work and there is no point in getting new ones, even if they are just for reading, until they do my left eye. I can already see much better at distance without glasses, but reading may be a bit of a problem. I think I will be able to muddle by, though.

Thanks for everyone good wishes.
