Fellow Knuts,

I am lagging in getting my eye surgery for cataracts.   I am not completely down but I am headed that way and I can only participate to a given extent in so many activities.  I will be leaving the forum for at least 6 months and possibly longer. That’s the current estimate.  I will stay on the “roadside assist list” for I-5 near Eugene, Or and help you any way I can on your travels should that need occur.  My email  and phone are listed in my profile if you need/want to contact me.

I will have the wife review the posts from time to time and let me know if I should answer something through her.  So far I still have a license so you aren’t all that safe on the road.LOL

I wish you all the best.  It has been my pleasure and honor to have shared this time with all of you.  Till then…Schwarzenegger (I’ll be baak)  smiley face

John

PS:  I can't see where the "new rules" changed a single thing so please understand that my decision is based solely on medical grounds.

Good luck with the surgery.  I had cataract surgery last year.  There was a fast and substantial vision improvement.  Recovery is really not that long-- maybe 4 to six weeks.

Good luck!  When my mother had cataract surgery, they did one eye at time but even then she was only a week or less recovering.  It seemed almost instant gratification!

Good luck with the surgery.  I'm betting you can't go six months or even six weeks without us.

Good Luck on your eye surgery.   I know you'll be seeing out of the eye the next day, and be up a running in a few weeks.  I believe we'll see you back on line a lot sooner then you think.  Good Luck, TomC

John,

I work for the leading manufacturer of the intraocular lens used in cataract surgery. I worked in the R&D department developing all the lenses on the market today, until I accepted a role leading the engineering department at the manufacturing facility.

PM me if you want to talk to someone about this. There are many options, and although I am not a doctor, and I do not give medical advice, I can talk you through some of the sales talk.
