Ever see Dali and Buñuel's classic short film "Un Chien Andalou"?

I did many years ago. I don't know what made me think of that.

Incidentally, I'm having a cataract operation tomorrow morning. :)

Lens removal and replacement?

How bad is your vision?

Wife had both eyes done two years ago. The closest thing to a miracle that I will ever experience. Amazing result.

I'm 100% satisfied with the eye that it was done before, so now it's time finally to have binocular vision again. 8)

Patch off.

A bit blurry, but doctor says that's not a problem just now.

Seeing him in his office tomorrow.

Going back to work this morning.

Should be 100% in a few weeks.

Old glasses OK for now, but will need new ones.

Don't forget to put the card in your wallet. They need it in case you die and they want to steal your corneas.

Plus, they have recalls from time to time.

Did they pressure you (endlessly, as they did me) to get LASIK at the same time (since you're there and all)?

No.

However the operation also fixed my astigmatism.
