Good news about my eyes

Hibiscus in my garden.

After more than two years, I finally made an appointment to have my eyes checked.  My optometrist told me that my vision is 20/40 in my right eye and 20/30 in my left eye.  I don’t need glasses to drive and also don’t need glasses for the computer.  Further, there is no need to order new reading glasses for the newspaper.  Halleluia!

Then, I was seen by my ophthalmologist.  He examined the nerves in my eyes and told me I have no glaucoma and no macular degeneration.  But, I do have tiny cataracts, which do not require surgery at this time.  Halleluia!

It’s so nice to hear this type of good news, especially regarding my eyes.

People have been telling me to join Facebook.  Well, I don’t want to.  Blogging requires too much computer time as it is, and Facebook would make me spend even more time on the computer.  Besides, staring at the computer all day will damage my eyes.  I don’t want to go blind!

Today, I am going to have lunch with friends at the Hau Tree Lanai in Waikiki.  I hope it doesn’t rain, as the restaurant is outdoors, right on the beach.  I’ll take photos, of course, and will post them later.

Ah, I am happy to say that life is really good in Hawaii.

    That’s great news about your eyes. Wish I could say the same. I’m doing all I can to take care of them, seeing a retina specialist for one. Apparently my AMD is stable, though. 🙂

    A good eye appointment and no expense for new frames, too. Excellent.

    great job on the eyes! and cataracts are a normal part of aging. I got one really early on but it has been stable. I think you would enjoy Facebook, you have so much family to connect with.

    Good news all around.

    Facebook is time consuming. I use t to stay in contact with kids, grandkids, other family and friends. How else would I know what they’re up to? When I write a post, it goes to FB.

    My garden consumes much of my time.

    I’m on FB but it can eat your lunch — if you let it. I try to limit my time and I have learned some good things from links and even some important news that I might not hear otherwise, but it’s a 50-50 proposition. As far as I’m concerned, the blog is more meaningful. And it is a good place to put your posts if that matters to you.
