Now that I'e turned 60, I have developed somewhat poor eyesight (a heavy cataract (clouding over) in my left eye). Since I have always (almost always, that is) worn glasses, I have been fairly well used to dealing with some issues having to do with my eyes - but luckily for me, without my "long distance glasses" I have been able to focus up close with almost microscopic clarity. Very good for my chosen profession both as a graphic artist and violin making, repairing, re-hairing - etc. I'm curious how many makers have had to deal with this problem in the past (or present) and, how did it go with the supposedly quick and effective (eye surgery) remedy that is available today? I have been told that a fifteen minute procedure, will take care of this problem, with a completely swift recovery also? With in the last year this started - and fairly suddenly I have found that I have lost all practical vision in my left eye... Hey, I'm just curious - I have found (by asking around) that this happens very commonly and everyone I talk to, that has had it done says - "Just go do it, and continue on with your life". Anyone??
