aging eyesight

I was straightening out a stack of firewood in my garage.....taking out some items that didnt belong there.....i picked up what i thought was a coil of black rope....lifted it in the air ...and then realized it was a snake
My eyesight is getting worse and i have made a couple of stupid but funny little mistakes because of it .....i wear reading glasses when i need to but when i dont i can get into trouble.

I recently had cataract surgery on both eyes,,, absolutely amazing,,, 15 min. procedure, no blinding bright lights while night driving anymore and can almost spot birds/blow ups as good as hawk eye Wayne ....
I just wish they could fix the rest of me that easy....

I could always see well, see grades, lines and critters.
Cataracts started 4 years ago and now the eye doc tells me it's time.
I go beginning of October for first appointment. Goal is to not have to wear glasses except for reading and be able to see a golf ball again.
We'll see.

if that were me, my wife would have found me dead from a heart attack, me no likey snakes... I chase them with he weed wacker screaming like a little child.( providing I see them first).. scared to death of them... I'd rather face down a gut shot Grizzly than a garter snake... did I say I hate snakes..

I'm lucky enough to still have good night vision, but I'm up to a 9" screen on the fish finder, no room on there for 12".. Ill let you guys be the guinea pigs.... I can read the little ones by day, harder each year to see the big one bye night.

A good run is better than a bad stand!

Bad vision or just a senior moment....a few weeks ago, when I wanted a cup of coffee but didn't want to brew a whole pot, I reached into the cabinet for the jar of instant. Put a spoonful and then the boiling water.......first sip and i knew something was off.
picked up the jar for a closer look....... chocolate sprinkles.

So what's the problem?
You had hot chocolate instead of coffee?

All you say if "I wanted to see if they taste like cocoa...."

Now if it were rainbow sprinkles.....

Just had an eye exam 20/30 not too bad considering my age. I was hoping to find a cure for my need for readers- no such help available (*&^%$^! Nothing can be done. One of the suckages of getting older....but sure beats being on the other side of the dirt .
