Days of Miracles and Wonders  
Had my post-op follow up with my regular optometrist this morning. All looks good.

I was stunned when I read the chart. Usually, with my glasses off, the first line is somewhat legible. Today, I read down to the last line. Then I read the little number that was off to the right of it. From nearly blind from cataracts, my right eye is now *better* than 20/20. And it's still a little fuzzy -- after a week it will be all healed. Doc said I could expect 20/15 vision.

Left eye will be done in two weeks. Then I guess I'll take up sharpshooting or something that will take advantage of the miracle.

I know the thrill will fade as I get used to it but not yet. I still keep closing my left eye then my right so I can marvel at how much more color I see with the repaired eye. It is truly amazing.

Fiona mentioned she works at the lab that manufacturers these toric lenses that correct astigmatism. All I can say is "You go, girl!"
