New Optics - New Life - WOW!!

At the ripe ol' age of 67 I'm now seeing like a 20 year old.

If anyone is considering a lens transplant and can find a good eye smith I'd strongly consider going for it. Costs about as much as a top of the line custom rifle or maybe a little better. Or if you're stuck on medicare as I am its much less expensive.

Went from legally blind in the left eye to 20-20 in about 25 minutes.

Went from pretty good to 20-25 in the right eye in about the same amount of time.
Didn't improve the vision much but things sure got brighter in this eye.

Got to toss the glasses for Long Range Looking. This is great!!!!

Am able to use binos again. .

I have a thumper coming w/an NXS on it and can hardly wait to see through it.

The Weaver Tactical, Ziess Conquest and the el cheapo binos are superb!!

Life is good ....... for those who are living.......

The great part of it is that ya'll collectively foot the bill.

Glad to have paid my share of the bill Roy. Do you know which eye of yours I own stock in?

Re: New Optics - New Life - WOW!!

Roy,

That's great news! I'm happy for you.

You do realize, however, we expect more great long range hunting from you now?! And, since we paid for the surgery, your efforts at documentation and sharing such documentation with us here is the least you could do, you know?

Say, do you have any idea when that .375 is gonna show up? I'm waiting impatiently for my .338...

Jon

You scared me. At first I read it as "At the ripe ol' age of 67 I'm now seeing a 20 year old."
