yesterday i finally had the cataract removed from my right eye! finally, in the sense that my doctor diagnosed this problem in 2009(!) and through procrastination, anxiety, logistics - but mostly fear - i kcpt putting off the day of reckoning! and since the eye surgery ice has been broken, the left eye is on deck for correction next week! i'm happy - and relieved - to finally get this taken care of. aside from the corrected vision itself, the one big benefit i should get from it is the restoration of my night vision. i'll be able to drive at night again!
the only downside at this point is the recovery. i can't do any running for two weeks. i basically won't be doing any running (and especially races) for the next three weeks! yikes! that's going to be one tough stretch of withdrawal :O
but it's all good!
