"It is just unbelievable not to wear glasses! I've worn glasses for many, many years. I would just never go back to wearing glasses unless there was no other way out of it. I really don't need them. I see far, I see close, I see itsy-bitsy print – it's just unbelievable.
The day after I had this cataract surgery I went back to work. I work in a medical office as a cashier, reading insurance cards-really fine print-and I could see fine. I could see so well it was...I could not believe it. I couldn't believe it.
Life without glasses is...well, as I say, it sets you free. You no longer have to look through these lenses all the time. You can look anywhere you want without them.
If there is just one thing I could say to anyone who was considering this surgery, it's 'go for it!' I, from the beginning, have had no pain. I was awake the whole time. I saw immediately after the surgery. I guess I just can't find words to say to people. Please do it, it is so wonderful. I have friends who are waiting. They are waiting for this procedure to come out so they can have it done. It's wonderful.
Anything that I could do to know that someone else could see like me, I would do it – I would. I would do anything to help someone else to see like I do."

"I don't wear glasses at all. I can see everything I want to see – there's just no need for them. I wear sunglasses when I drive, they are not prescription.
I work on the computer approximately eight hours a day at work, and then I'm on the computer at home. That's not an issue for me. I don't have any problems with that. When driving, I see all the instruments on my car just absolutely clear, and even at night, there's no problem with reflection from the lights on the dashboard.
I can read my watch. I can read the ingredients on a nail polish bottle. The thing that I noticed most about it was that my vision was like I was 25 years old again, which was terrific."
