    Cheers to your quitting, then :toast:

    Shame you had to go through what you have, but this and about 5 other health benefits are the reward for your choice.

    Hope the glasses help for now. my cataracts aren't bad enough for surgery yet either, but my vision is bad even with glasses.

    love stories like this. My sil had great success with one eye, not so much with the other. The lens came out in several pieces, she's always felt like some was left in there. probably not but that's how it feels to her.

    oh yuck, sorry hun


    yipes! Hope the other eye stays ok.

    Ok......now to batteries. Looking at mooch's latest list........ I've thinking

    VTC 5A Mooch tested to 20A 2600 mah

    LG HD2 Mooch tested to 25A 2000 mah

    I've heard more about the VTC 5a's, but I'm leaning toward the higher amp rather than the mah, and of course I'm loving the purple :D a little cheaper, but not enough to be a real consideration.

    anyone have experience with these? What do you think......or would you suggest something else? I want flat tops.

    Been a while since I've perused Mooch. What's the date on the list you refer to?

    Unless he has changed his ratings since the newest list I have dated late July this year, he had tested the VTC5A's to a 25A CDR/30A MVA rating. I have dozens of them, they safely handle any of my monster super low builds just fine with room to spare.

    On my July list the LG HD2 has a 25A CDR/25A MVA rating. But the top dog 18650 is the pink LG HB6 1500 with a 32A CDR/40A MVA rating.
    FWIW

    If a doctor is telling you that glasses will help you, you need to get another doctor!! There is no pair of glasses that can help you see through a cloud, period, and that is exactly what a cataract is... Take a thin strip of a cotton ball and place it in front of your eye and that was all I could see in my left eye prior to surgery. Everything was just a shape prior to it... I thought I was blind in that eye!! I had my left eye done Jan 2015 and can personally tell you it was the only thing that could help me see out of that eye. Papa was correct that its about a half hour and recovery is about a week in total, but that is only because of meds you put in your eye to help it heal quicker. I was able to read with that eye and no type of glasses what so ever later that afternoon... Haven't wore glasses until recently I need reading glasses (1.5) for reading the paper or surfing the net but that is due to my right eye developing a cataract. I will be having that eye done by years end and should never need any type of glasses after that at all.

    I will admit prior to the surgery I was scared of things going badly but was more scared that if I didn't do anything about it I would never see out of that eye ever again!!!
    I have never known of any doctor letting you drive home after cataract surgery, in fact all that I've talked to had to have someone sign in at the time you check in so they know there is someone to drive you home. I know I couldn't have drove right after surgery or even the same day. I was able to drive the next day though with no problems. Do yourself a favor and have your eyes corrected though. It was life changing to me...
    For the one eye I did almost 3yrs ago it was about $2100 and that included the pre / post op visits and meds. I believe it was about 6 visits in all. I thought it was very reasonable it all...

    Forgot to add that cataract surgery is usually done with you being awake. This is for your safety more than anything else as when you are put out your eyes tend to wander when you are asleep. That was a scary thought originally but turned out to be nothing at all.

    I was able to see the doctor remove the lens that the cataract was forming on and saw the new one slide in place and in that 5-10 second stretch was able to see the light above me that I was told to focus on went from a illuminated shape to being able to see the light fixture itself. I started to get a little choked up as that was the 1st time on over a year I could see anything at all other than a shape!! The doctor paused for just a brief second as he knew from experience what I was going through, told me to take a breathe and a few seconds later was finished and I was being moved to recovery...

    agree with every single thing musichead said. cataract surgery was literally a life changer and is far and away the biggest no-brainer i have ever done.

    in my case, it got to the point where, not only could i not read streetsigns, but i was unable to read any of the large highway signs unless i was right under them. i had resigned myself to only being able to drive on roads i knew by heart. and there was no way i would drive at night. the kicker was i had to meet someone in a new town. i got lost trying to find the walmart, of all things, in the mall lot. after an hour my friend had to guide me over the cellphone.

    i had the worst eye done, and immediately the vision problem was gone. i could read street signs and my longterm night vision problem was more or less gone.

    after a year i finally got the bright idea to cover one eye at a time to compare vision, and-- holy crap, i was damn near blind in my onetime 'good' eye. so i had that eye done.

    within a half hour after each surgery i could see perfectly- just a tad bright for a bit.

    i wore glasses for the last 25 years, but no more. i only use reading glasses from the dollar store. my vision is probably better than at any time in my life.

    i'll only add that i doubt any doctor will do both eyes at one time. that would be silly, in any case.

    it truly is lifechanging

    Some additional on the senseless Las Vegas Strip Shooting Massacre 10/1/17 (58 victims + the shooter, 527 injured).

    The 58.
    Here are all the victims of the Las Vegas shooting

    Various info.
    The trigonometry of terror: Why the Las Vegas shooting was so deadly

    The local residents, visitors and folks from all over the country have really steeped up. Everything is ongoing strong here to support all those that was effected by this. It will continue to be ongoing for many, many months (if not years).

    Senseless tragedy, to which, 10-11 days later, there is still no evidence of motive.

    It's cause the narrative is false! Though I'm sure we can't talk about that here.

    I’m not much of a believer in conspiracy theories. There are lots of them out there.

    Easy to do when there not releasing much info and changing the little they do released haha.

    So you believe a 64 year old did all that and offed himeslef long before the cops got there instead of taking out all he could for all the time they gave him?? One would think with all that in there he would of planed a war with whoever came threw the door.

    Me i feel a setup. Gun deal possibly with the intent of pinning it on him and booked long before anyone arrived.. why the shooting ended long before cops finally got there.

    Though we prob will never know the real truth.

    Yes. I believe he acted alone. Why did he stop shooting? I don’t know.

    Plenty of live account videos out there that one can easily hear multiple gun fire.. we're talking different shots of different volumes.. meaning multiple shooters.. not echoes. Even shootings at different casinos.

    In other news..

    My 12 year old daughter came home today from school and tells me that 3 boys in her school were caught vaping in the boys bathroom!

    She even knows one of them. Some other kid ratted on them. No idea of the outcome yet.

    Guess it could be worse but still.. how did 12 year olds get a hold of a vaporzier??
