Today Larry went back to see his ophthalmologist. The doctor wanted to make sure he went for the second cataract surgery. He tested Larry's far vision in the eye that had the surgery. His distant vision tested perfect. He hasn't had distant vision without glasses since he was a child and possibly not then. The doctor said that when he has the other cataract removed, he will have perfect vision without glasses except for close work and a pair of reading glasses from the dollar store or Walgreens will be sufficient to remedy that.
He agreed to go back for the second cataract surgery and stopped by Walgreens to try out their reading glasses. He said he could see up close quite clearly. This is going to be much cheaper than the expensive blended trifocals he's used for years!
