Cataracts

Two prescription changes in the last two years $$$

Went to the eye clinic today as couldn't see clearly at distance.  Highway signs hard to read.  Outgoing trap targets would disappear from sight : (

Had my eyes checked and the person running the machine couldn't come up with a prescription for my that wasn't a blur. 

I've been seeing an ophthalmologist for the last two years and he has been keeping tabs on the start of my cataracts.  Told me at some point they might become an issue. 

When all said and done he recommended I have cataract surgery.

The downside is I have to wait until August to have the procedure done.

  1. Just had cataract surgery. Took care of astigmatism at the same time. Should be shooting clays in a week or so.

    Upside: vision is now 20/20 in both eyes. I can see as well as I did 30 years ago.
    Downside: >$5K out off pocket; 12 trips to the clinic; eyedrop regimen is a huge pain in the butt.
