Who should I have been angry with?

Recommended Posts

To leave the hospital after cataract surgery, you need a responsible adult to drive.

After eye number one, the nurse assumed the attractive young female was my girlfriend.

After eye number two, the doctor assumed she was my daughter.

The nurse paid you a compliment.  Did the doctor do a good job?

The doctor probably saw how you kissed the attractive young female.

Too late, 3rd eye blind.

Depends on who the attractive young female is.

Be happy with both..., the nurse (assuming the nurse was female) looked at you and felt that you were handsome and studly enough that you could have an attractive young girlfriend..., 

And the Doctor (if male) looked at the attractive young girl as a someone's daughter, instead of perving on her thinking she hooks up with older men and does freaky things for their money

Good news.  How soon before you can fly again?  Don't be surprised if every now and then you get a sense of vision overload.  Perhaps it doesn't happen to everyone but for the first month or two I would get a strange feeling in a place like a brightly lit supermarket (american style) where all the colors and things would be a bit disorienting for a few seconds.  I think it was the muscles in my eyes trying to focus or adjust the lens that they no longer controlled.

Of course that could just be me as I'm disoriented much of the time anyway.  :whistle:

I am good to go now.   You are correct.  I went with the high definition, blue light and UV blocking lenses.  The bright lights in the supermarket are a shocker.

It will go away as the muscles adjust from a lifetime of doing something different.

Quick question Wilbur.  Can you focus at the distance of your instruments or will you need to wear glasses.  Mine were progressives with a 0 prescription over my reading glasses to solve all my distance problems.

I need readers for close up stuff but just 1.45.  The instrument panel and further is crystal clear.  It is amazing.  :)  I could have gone the variable focus route but Transport Canada delays return to work another 6 months.

Good.  I needed a 2.5 for the readers and my work area was probably a bit closer than the instrument panel.  The real pain was working in the microscope on ckt boards.  I would have to put on my readers to find a part in the kit next to my hand and then take them off to go back into the scope.

It is incredible technology but a long way from perfection.

It depends whether the young attractive female was your girlfriend or your daughter.

As I understand it, those can be difficult with night driving. My wife went with two different focal lengths in each eye to avoid that. The brain learns to process the information.

Yeah, the downsides were colour definition and potential for light halo's so that ruled them out for me.  Readers for up close items is a small enough compromise for me.  95% of the time, I won't need glasses at all.  I am happy with the choice.

This whole thread was educational....for my partner who will be needing cataract surgery within next 12 months or so.  I passed the thread to him. :)

You cannot possibly be talking about attractive young females and expect us to have an informed opinion without pics.

Obviously you should be mad at the maintenance people in the hospital as they are the ones responsible for the lighting.

Even over the ocean?  That's impressive.
