Two Tleilaxu Eyes

The second one is done. Surgery went smoothly and recovery is going well. The second eye appears to be recovering more quickly than the first. There was less redness and I had usable vision in the eye the next day.

I was amazed at how much colors had changed. The cataracts were filtering blue light. Loosing both of them, colors are consistent across my visual field and I’m amazed at the change in the off-whites in the kitchen back splash, kitchen and bathroom marble, and tile floors. All have lost their lemonade look. Oh, and the stains on the shower enclosure tile are obvious. Field day happened.
