NANO and Recovery

Saturday, I had my second appointment with the eye doctor. He was more encouraging than ever. I will end up 20/20 in the right eye, and 20/25 in the left where I had macular hole surgery last March. No new glasses until the Dec. 7 appointment.

I'm still not back to writing more than a few lines. I get a headache from the "old" glasses, which are way too strong now, and the "cheaters" (2.25 magnification) he suggested have a glint around the edges I just don't seem to filter out well.

I got down to 60/40 with glasses before I got to the sticking point.

I actually read a number, without glasses, from the phone book the other day.
