I had the cataract surgery today and it went fine except for the scar tissue where they had to make their cut. It would not close tight enough so they had to stitch it closed. The stitches feel like some one held my eye open and filled it with palm chips, Uggh. recovery time is about 2 weeks and it looks good.

Geez, Ben. Thanks for conjuring up a permanent case of the willies for me.

Take it easy. Rest. Get well soon.

"I can see clearly now the pain is gone..." Not quite that good but vision is already better in that eye. I think I'l be very happy with it.
Sorry bout the pix

Hey Ben,

Just coming out of my own ordeal, I feel for you, man. I wish you a speedy recovery from the pain and hope you return to full vision. You need your eyes to continue those awesome carvings!

Thanks again for being there for me. I hope you know we are here for you.

Why didn't you just carve yourself a new and better looking eye?
