Over a year ago I was diagnosed with a cataract in one eye; it later turned out I had cataracts in both eyes. In the fall, surgery was advised; and for one reason and another, and one complication or another, the first surgery was yesterday.
So far, all is going extremely well; the eye itself is healthy; and I am already reading better.
Yes, during my Printz year of reading, my ability to read was significantly reduced by the cataract, even with reading glasses. I could not read as speedy as I had in the past; which, in some ways was a good thing, as it turned me into more of a marathon-reader, pacing myself, as opposed to a sprint-reader, going fast, fast, fast. In all honesty, because of the eye strain and eye stress, my reading dropped significantly after this past January. So, that explains the only handful of reviews and rants I've posted.
Fingers crossed, the eye will continue to heal, the vision will get better and better; and I'll find out more about glasses, etc., once both eyes are done. And you'll see an increase in reviews. And rants.
