Best of luck. My mother just had successful cataract surgery. I should inquire about the costs.

I have the variant for macular degeneration. I just started taking lutein. I need to do more research into its effectiveness.

Blindness would be a uniquely sad thing for me.

Unrelated, in the last two years, I’ve lost my ability to focus on objects close to my face. That came fast. What the hell is it in middle age that makes your lenses freeze up?

re focusing on objects close up - hook yourself up with reading glasses. That's what they're for -- but yeah, it's kind of sudden.
