Thanks for asking! My surgery went well.
I had a cataract removed, via laser incision, ultra sound breakup of the lens, suction removal, and had a replacement lens inserted. The new lens is single-focus, but is able to correct my astigmatism. The cataract was a side-effect of a medication I use. At that point, I was basically blind in that eye, so VR lost its appeal, even though I still had one “good” eye.
I had planned to get my surgery early last year, but Covid happened and I postponed it. Unfortunately, because of the delay, the cataract was quite advanced, so it will be about 3 months until it’s fully healed (about 2 to 3 times longer than it typical takes). The recovery has been strange; I’ve had to learn to see in 3D again (now that I have 2 working eyes).
The good news is that I can see depth now and have stopped walking into doorways, breaking things, etc. I feel safe to drive a car again. The bad news is that, while my vision is greatly improved, it is not yet adequate for reading (unless the letters are large, say 1 inch or more). My vision should continue to improve over the next few months.
Anyway, for the first time in months, I actually spent some time in VR last night (instead of short test runs). I was able to play MSFS 2020 for about 40 minutes last night, before my eye became too painful to continue. It was awesome to see depth again in VR. My 8KX is able to run at 90 Hz now, so the experience is even better than I remember.
TL;DR The surgery was successful and I can enjoy VR again.
