Great news Joe !!  You'll love how much more you can close your eye & you'll love the aesthetics of it.  The fish won't recognize you !!  I can't wait (but have no choice) for my new weight - hoping by the end of June (please, please) or July.
Always good thoughts my friend,   Nancy

Joe,
I think it sounds easier than panning for gold in the hills!  I agree with Nancy, the fish won't recognize you.  I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers!  Does that mean you'll also save money on eye drops?

nancyann - have you tried Restasis? My doctor started me on it last year. I went from using Lacrilube 3-4 times a day and a glob every night to one Restasis drop in the am and one in the pm. I love it.

Hi Pembo:  Thanks for asking, but my optomologist, who I saw 5/15 said 'no' to punctual plug or Restasis - he said my problem isn't dry eye from no tears, my problem is dry eye from not being able to blink.  So, 1/2 the world is a blur to me!!!!   Thanks for the suggestion though !!!!!    Always good thoughts,  Nancy

Hi Joef

You will enjoy the eye weight. I will give you comfort. When I had mine it really helped but I'm a vain girl I couldn't wait to have it taken out.
