Well, assuming that you have a great doctor...
My mom had both eyes done a couple years ago, and things are far better in her world for it ever since! I hope that you enjoy the same experience.
Definitely have to agree with "getting old sucks" though... Just got done with a phone call from a friend that I've known 30 years, who's losing his faculties (albeit a slow bit at a time). It was a revisit to an "old sore spot" with us unfortunately.
Ever since one major stroke, he's been a bit different. And he swears (and fully believes) that he and I were sitting down with a mutual friend (who I've known for well over 30 years) at a restaurant having a meal and conversation a couple years ago. But when I told him "I haven't seen that person in at least 5-7 years...." he got totally bent out of shape, and said I was the one who wasn't remembering things correctly. When it finally got far enough along, I texted that friend, asking simply "when was the last time we saw each other?" and she confirmed what I told him... (without leading her, or using a baited question mind you) He blew a total gasket, stormed off, and we didn't talk for awhile.
It's hard watching a friend go through things like that. Much less not being able to help him with whatever it is that is bothering him (when his only point of reference is to a conversation that never happened in real life.)
Anyways, sorry. It just seemed to fit with the "getting old" statement. Maybe you can use it as a "things could always be worse" kind of thing.

Again, hope you enjoy great results!
