Yesterday was my followup visit to have the results from my Panama City examination reviewed by Dr. Young.
I should mention, that you need to prepare yourself when you go for some doctor’s appointments. Dr. Young is a highly recognized doctor and when he is in David, he always has a lot of people to see. My appointment was at 4:00 PM and I got to see him at 6:50 PM. That is just the way it is.
While I was waiting, I got to talk to several people. One had come from Costa Rica to have cataract surgery on both eyes. She was extremely pleased. I think the costs depend on several factors, but her cost to have both eyes done was in the $2,500 range.
Now for the news from my appointment. I am happy to report that my form of macular degeneration is the “dry” form. That is good news. It is nice to know that I will be able to enjoy the sight of a well filled bikini for a few more years. 🙂
I am now free to return to Vision 20/20 and have my prescription filled for new glasses. I hope to do that soon. Maybe tomorrow.

He took a look and then added the drops to dilate my eyes. Then I went back to the waiting area to let the drops take effect and got to practice my Spanish with others waiting in the hall. Continue reading Here’s Looking At You – Almost
