I was told it would happen
and it is happening

How wonderful that I picked
up a book
the difference is amazing.

Noticed it throughout yesterday
but kept thinking
maybe the print is bigger.
Or maybe I am imagining this.

If my eyes continue to improve
I may not even need glasses to read...

Oh my
this is wonderful.

Now other things that are happening to
this 75 plus body
that I do not like
come on
amaze me.....

Might mention that as doctor was preparing for this second eye surgery.
I told him that it seemed I had circles under my eye and was this because
of the surgery.
His reply "no you probably did not notice it before."
I smile and have the thought
what else have I not been aware of ?

But I do think what has been done has something to do with the dark circles.
Makes sense to me - with the work being done in a sensitive area.

Time will tell.....

Great news to read (that you're able to see so much better now :-)). And may those circles disappear...

Oh so thrilling to "see" evidence that life can be even better!

This is the tale I have heard from most people after this surgery. I am envious...but also admit I am glad I do not see myself as well as I used to. Daughter is always correcting my make-up!

Great news! and an encouragement for those of us who made need this surgery in the future.

I avoid looking at the back of my hair; I've been told it's thinning!

I'm so glad your surgery has been a success. May the dark circles become a thing of the past.

Charlotte, Lorraine
and WWW, thank you.
Hope I continue to make progress..

SO GLAD!!! Now, when I have to have the surgery--I won't be as afraid. I would think that the dark circles could be from the surgery--a bit of bruising from the veins or something. As you and I well know--doctor's don't know everything, LOL.

Judy, you will be fine and you and I know the dark circles are from the surgery..

Glad you can see the little details in your quiet days! I am sending love and good, strong, healing energy. Hope you can feel it across the miles!

I am so glad you are seeing clearly! I suspect those dark circles will recede.
