Beautiful!
I had my cataracts done a couple of years ago, and it is so wonderful how much more color I see now. I didn't know what I was missing!

I have to say that the colours in this image are better (for me) than the images taken before your cataract operation, Fred Smile Glad to hear all went well. Carol

The operation does make a big difference Ron, I have to wait a few more weeks for the healing process to be complete at the moment things are a bit bright and I have to have a drop in 4 times a day for another 3 weeks, hopefully the second eye will be done in September or October,
Fred.

You had a tendency to over-brighten before the op, Fred. This is spot on. I wish you well in your recovery.
