Default Eye Surgery

Just a note to say I had my eye surgery today. Sorry I haven't been on much but have been banned from the shop for a while. The surgery went well and lasted all of 7 minutes. He told me to go home and take a nap. So I followed doctors orders. He doesn't want me in the shop doing any woodworking at all this next month as he doesn't want me in the shop for 2 weeks after this surgery and then doesn't want me in there for 2 weeks before the next which will be done 4/25. Then 3 weeks healing time and eye checkup to see if I need glasses or not. Thanks for all the well wishes. It means a lot. I will be on here checking to see if anyone is turning.

Get well quick Bernie. Maybe this is some time to think of new turning projects.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I assume you had cataract surgery. You will not believe how well you will be able to see. My eye was 20 / 15 after 1 week.

Thank you all. It means a lot to me. Well it has been 9 hrs now and most of the white cloud is gone and I can already see many times better than before I went it. It will be something to see what things look like when when the white cloud is all gone. Sorry but I am like a kid that just got a new toy.

Bernie, so glad your surgery went well, and as for the shop, it will be there when all is said and done. Think of all the mistakes you'll find quicker (or lack there of, having better eyesight) when this is all over :-)

Good to hear things are on the mend Bernie. Mom's(she's 89) doctor just recommended that she get her cataracts(sp?) taken care of so she will be going thru something similar in a bit...

My Mum had hers done when she was in her 90s.

You will notice a great difference, Bernie.

Speedy recovery...
