    If you go out and buy a replacement you'll find the lost one shortly after getting home.

    Yeah, that guy gets around. He's done it to me while I'm in the middle of a job.

    Hasn't happened today, yet, but then again, it's not even 7:00 am yet!

    Sorry I waited this long. Right eye is this Friday and the left eye the Friday after. Monofocal lenses in both eyes, the right for distance and the left for "functional" vision. Also using a laser for astigmatism. Will get some goggles to celebrate when this is over.

    Cool. Seeing better is a blessing!

    So far, the fall-off for me is not bad enough that I'm looking for surgery. Did back to back weekend drives over Thanksgiving NYC-DC and back, and can still manage night driving at speed. I do notice though that my peripheral vision is not what it used to be.

    Now that winter is here, with associated clear, dense air, the night skies are totally amazing, i don't ever remember being able to see stars like this. Even with glasses as a kid. But, then again, my memory might not be as good as I remember it .... Wait, uh..... um....
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right.....

    T+1. This week was difficult due to the difference between the treated and untreated eye, but it's done and I'm mending. My ophthalmologist, optometrist and I ultimately decided on distance vision in both eyes. He left astigmatism in one eye so it's not true plano, calling it a "bank error in my favor."

    The change in vision is profound. I'm not just talking sharpness, but color and brightness. I live in a large building and the garage and hallways look different. Also, it will sound stupid but my mood improved with the brightness.

    Looking forward to getting back on the bike, but that likely won't be for two weeks.

    I bought a pair of Oakley after my surgery, I really wanted to protect my investment! For reference, insurance company does NOT pay for the astigmatism correction lenses!
