Terrified of the surgery but it was not painful and afterwards had minimal discomfort. Very quickly adapted to life without glasses although strange at first. Great having highlights and could carry on reading because didn’t have to remove glasses!! Able to read texts adn reply etc. Bliss Bliss! However distance still bit blurry but improving daily.
