What's a writer to do when the eyes start to give out?
Apparently, sometime in the not so distant future, this writer faces surgery for cataracts. The mere thought of someone mucking about with a cutting instrument anywhere in the vicinity of my eyes fills me with terror.
Somewhere, I picked up a snippet of information about preparation for a procedure. One may choose to have inserted--in place of the cloudy lens--either a corrective replacement lens for close vision, or one to allow distant vision.
I'm sure some of you have undergone such a surgery. Or you may have a friend or relative who has done so.
In light of the close vision needed for computer work, which all writers do daily, what choice have you or other writers made?
Close or far? What should I choose?
