 Both my eyes have now had surgery to remove cataracts and insert plastic lenses.   The first operation wasn't as good as the second one, however when using both eyes, including driving, my sight is good.  I was offered a followup operation on my right eye, however even though it was for free (normally about 3K), I am happy with the result.

 This morning I had the first of two eye remove a cataract and insert a plastic lens in my right eye. Tomorrow I get the date for the second operation and if everything goes well, it is goodbye to glasses for Kev. It should take a couple of weeks to get over each of the operations.

This postcard was sent from London to my grandparents by their nephews...both Lees.  They were on leave from the front during WW1.  The soldier was later killed in Belgium.
