It’s a bright new world

My cataracts are out. My new glasses are on. The world is an amazing place once again. I hadn’t realized how much vision I had lost since it happened so gradually. But suddenly I’m looking at a world of bright colors and sharp edges and focus…I know I’ll eventually get over this and it will just be another humdrum day again, but right now I am absolutely fascinated and amazed at all I’d lost and have suddenly regained.

And yes, I know I could have had my eyes made 20/20 so I wouldn’t need glasses. But reading it my life and I want to always be able to take off my glasses and read so that no matter how tired my eyes are, they will work on print. That doesn’t happen with reading glasses.  I would not be a very nice person if I couldn’t read so you should all be grateful I went this route instead.
