Three years ago or so I had cataract surgery in my right eye. They implanted an artificial lens, which is quite an experience. But that is another story.
About a year and a half ago I developed an occlusion in the eye which has left me with pretty limited vision in that eye. It turns out this is a common complication and easily remedied with a lazer. Hey, this is my shootin' eye! So I am off to Palo Alto to get my eyeball lazed this morning.
I am really looking forward to being able to see well again.
