Default ...two new lenses & I went shooting right away

...today I made my annual trek into the close by nature preserve park. The lack of rain shows in the foliage and flowers, there really are no flowers in the park this spring but I made the best of it and scoured the 60-acres for what I could find.

Oh yeah, my two new lenses are IOL implants. AMAZING to see color and sharpness again, cataract surgery the past two weeks and the blur is gone. I can see as I did 25 years ago, 20-20 either eye, but because of double vision I cannot see (distance) with both eyes at the same time without glasses for prism correction, small price to be able to see again clearly. I'm pretty happy about it.

These were made with the E-3, 50-200 & 14-54

Hi Bob,

It's a pleasure to see you posting photos again as it's been a long time. Too long a time, as a matter of fact.

I am so happy to hear that the eye procedures were successful and that issue is behind you.


Looking forward to some baseball photos from you.

Zig

Congratulations on the new "eyes"! That's great news. I remember similar comments from both my mother and father when they had the same surgery. I guess that means I have that to look forward to down the road as well....

I had no idea you had 'em, Bob, but I'm sure glad they're gone! Great shots as proof!

Grest shots! I love those blue flowers! Too bad we have to wait a couple of weeks in order to see anything like that.

So you had to wait for rain to try out your new lenses...??? Summatt wrong with this picher....

That's exciting Bob, bet it feels so good, it's a scary thought to have to deal with that.

I had a similar situation last your but with my ears. Had to have surgery in both that made for a dramatic change. Still use hearing aids but I was getting a tad depressed about things.

Conversley at almost 73 (May Day) I still have sharp 20/40 vision for almost any distance over arms length. So I have cheap readers planted everywhere.

Nice photos, congrats..

Hey, Bob, congrats on the new lenses! I love those little green bees. We had a ton of them around here in Colleyville the last couple of years, but I haven't seen any this year. I'm very disappointed. Nice pics. BTW, I just checked the Ranger's score, UGH! Those rotten Angels!
