New Eyeball Coming Soon to a Head Near Me

Blurry fingers

Totally groovy. Peace to you – twice . . . at least.

I got a call from the Ophthalmological surgery department yesterday to ask me if I wanted to have my cataract removed and replaced next Wednesday instead of next month. I said “yes”, so I’m having my pre-op exam this afternoon and, if all goes well, by this time next week I should have my new lens and be well on my way to healing. I’ll still need glasses for really sharp vision, but the constant blurring of my right eye will be gone (Dog willing and the creek don’t rise!).

About Rick Ladd

I retired nearly 13 years ago, though I've continued to work during most of the time since then. I'm hoping to return to work on the RS-25 rocket engine program (formerly the SSME) which will power our return to the moon. Mostly I'm just cruising, making the most of what time I have remaining. Although my time is nearly up, I still care deeply about the kind of world I'll be leaving to those who follow me and, to that end, I am devoted to seeing the forces of repression and authoritarianism are at least held at bay, if not crushed out of existence. I write about things that interest me and, as an eclectic soul, my interests run the gamut from science to spirituality, governance to economics, art and engineering. I'm hopeful one day my children will read what I've left behind. View all posts by Rick Ladd
