In August, I had the cataract in my right eye replaced with new lens I could actually see through. Today my left eye also received a new lens, to replace its cataract and, again, the results are amazing.

Sight of any kind is a wonderful Gift from God. Modern medicine and eye surgery, and the skill of ophthalmologist eye surgeons like Dr. Ford, is also a Gift. Cataract surgery and aftercare has been the subject of considerable debate in legislative committees. I can now bring personal experience to that debate.

This afternoon Marlene and I, and my son Bob, celebrated my two new good eyes with a scenic trip to Upper Summit Lake, Seward, Exit Glacier, and Cooper Landing to show my daughter-in-law Jiangping Li. It was a great photo opportunity (see my photos on my legislative website). She likes doing scenic photography as much as I do. Nothing beats the Kenai Penisula for a good camera and eyes without cataracts!
