Wow, glad to hear all went well Tam.

Like Tom (unfortunately), I saw the post title and was wondering why, at my age, I had NEVER heard of one of those before. And now I was too old to try one. Whew - dodged a bullet here.

I can still hear and see as well as when I was 40, or 30. I wore glasses from the ages of 7 to 13. I read somewhere that much of optometry/eyeglass prescriptions was bull, so I stopped wearing them. My sister was 10 at the time and I told her to throw them away, too. She had worn then since 5. I still don't, she started wearing reading glasses at 48.

Oh, I'm not boasting. My sight and hearing are the only parts of my body that are not quickly sliding into decrepitude. I can clearly see all my joints that are twisting and I can perfectly discern the snaps and cracks when I move.

Old age sucks, so, if you're already younger than I am, do everything you can to keep it that way.

Glad it all went well TAM. Hope most of your other bits are working well, too!

Only "most"? What mean thing did TAM ever do to you?

I guess it could have been an eye job, if certain bits were working.

Does anyone over 50 have all of their bits working like they did @ 30?

Well, it's been 1 week today since I received my new right lens. My vision in that eye has been improving slightly every day as my eyeball returns to its normal shape. In fact, I sat at my kitchen table drinking my coffee & just enjoyed looking out at our view of the harbour & mountains in the sunshine for half an hour - wonderful.

The most amazing thing this morning is that I'm now able to read text on my monitor without the need of reading glasses. With my new lens being a fixed focal length for distance, I wasn't expecting that - nice bonus.

I can't wait for my left eye to be done next month.

As for my other bits, I believe that they still work to some extent but I don't use some of them very often, ha!
