But now I see

Things have hard edges.  The leaves on a tree are distinct from each other.  Each pieces of gravel on a path is separate from the others.  Faces in a crowd don’t blur together.  Who knew?

Those who think there are no boundaries between right and wrong, true and false, beautiful and ugly; the blurrers of distinctions; those who think there are only shades of grey; the Hindu sages and New Age gurus who think “all is one”–these people are not just making philosophical errors.  They just need cataract surgery!

    Very happy for you, Dr. Veith.

    I will never forget the day after my LASIK surgery when I realized how bright and colorful and sharp everything actually is. The surgey knocked out my astigmatism and the doctor was correct in saying:

    “It will be for you like the difference between regular and HD TV.”

    Well put!!

    Or, for those who are younger, glasses or Lasik, as Paul says. I still remember the first pair of glasses I ever got, and how wonderful it was that everything was so nice and clear!

    Formerly you saw through a glass darkley….and now, behold…post cataract surgery. It’s wonderful how such a simple procedure causes such an improvement. I’m happy you’re doing so well, Dr. Veith.
