In order to see letters on screen and keyboard as I type this I am still using a large magnifying glass because close-up vision is more or less (expletive that rhymes with lucked). It was explained to me by the ophthalmic surgeon that near-vision will be restored when I get prescription glasses. I will go to high street opticians to have glasses prescribed in another week or so. Mustn't be too soon after the de-cataracting. I sort of miss my cataracts.
Et voilà. This explains why I haven't been posting lately. If I'd typed this without magnification and loads of corrections it would be nothing but typos.
