I haven't had cataract surgery (although it will be in my future, according to my most recent check-up) but Himself has had both eyes done. It made quite a difference to him, for the better.

In August last year I had a different type of eye surgery. For some time my vision range had been narrowing, so a brow lift and blepharoplasty was called for. I now have a much wider range of vision both vertically and horizontally; when my arms are extended to the sides I can see my hands in my peripheral vision without turning my head, which is amazing. It also means I need to wear a hat outdoors most of the time as so much light enters my eyes without overhanging heavy brows to provide shade.

I haven't trumpeted this to the tooftops because some people assume it was done for reasons of vanity. It was not. I now have two arc-shaped scars over my eyes which are slowly fading (if I was younger they would fade quicker, but then again if I was younger I wouldn't have needed surgery......) so there's nothing vain in that, believe me.

Go for it, Maggie.
