    I am so happy for you Tingting! May you have continued success and joy with your "new" vision. We are very lucky to have Dra. Claudia Camacho and Co. at our disposal. I also think that she is wonderful.

    I've worn contacts for nearly 44 years and still had problems. If I were to attempt to wear glasses, they would be thicker than Coke bottles, and about as attractive. Over the years, I wanted the various latest and greatest procedures that came out (RK, lasik, etc), but was told that it couldn't be done because of thin cornea, super-strong prescription, etc, etc. I once asked what my actual prescription was (20/40? 20/100? ??) and was told when eyes are as bad as mine, they don't measure! Then, hubby had cataract surgery w/Dra. Claudia at the beginning of April, choosing the trifocal lenses. I joked that he was the poster child for the procedure because it went so well. When he told me that he could see well enough to drive, I actually didn't believe him because it'd just been a few days. Still, I made an appointment with the doctor because I had the start of cataracts and I just couldn't take the major headaches and vision hassles anymore. Originally, I was scheduled for 22 May, but the retina specialist canceled the surgery because I had lattice degeneration and holes in the retina, thin retinal walls, and -- my favorite -- large eyeballs (high myopics tend to have it and I was -8.5 and -8.0 with astigmatism). I had the option of having argon laser treatment to strengthen the retinas. No, it didn't "fix" them, but the scar tissue would act like a weld around a weak area. I chose to have it done (not fun) because anything that would help salvage my sight was worth it to me. The surgery was scheduled for four weeks later. My surgery was last Friday. On Saturday, I had my first follow-up. To my great and utter amazement, my vision is now 100%. I raced through both the regular letter eye charts and the reading chart, able to read every single line. Before, things would get fuzzy after a few lines. Everything was sharp and clear. Like hubby, I chose the Zeiss trifocal iols, including a toric for astigmatism, and it was the best investment I've ever made. I am completely glasses-free. While it's still early days and I realize that things can happen, I have complete confidence in Dra. Claudia. Since there's almost nothing more boring than someone describing their surgery, I'll just say everything went super-smoothly and it was over before I had a chance to get scared. Everyone was professional, friendly and helpful. A BIG thank you to Dra. Claudia and Dr. Silva (retina specialist) for taking the time and precautions needed for crappy eyes like mine. They didn't operate until my eyes were in the best shape that they could be and for that I'll be forever grateful.

    Tingting- Thanks for posting this information. I have worn glasses since I was about 7 years old and contacts for 47 years. My prescription for contacts is -8.00 and -10.00. I am not a candidate for Lasik either.

    Just had my cataracts done on Tuesday by the Dra. One standard lens, one toric lens. Next day, on follow up appointment, perfect vision on the eye chart. I've worn glasses for 65 years and never had anything close to this level of vision. She really is outstanding,

    Hi Everyone: I'm Lydia, a Canadian that is new to this forum and considering retirement in the Chapala area. I'm a homeowner and live with a cat in Toronto. If you are looking for a responsible and conscientious person to look after your house and care for pets while away, then I'm available to do that. There is no charge. Over the years, I've done housesits for family and friends and enjoyed it. I work but can housesit from 1-3 weeks and possibly longer. Prefer something after September. I'd be happy to answer any questions or message with you. Thankyou, Lydia

    My technique is to say the person sought should be available shortly when they finish some (arbitrarily extensible) task, and while waiting ask the caller what she/he is wearing...

    Why don't you simply block the number? I probably have blocked 30 telemarketing numbers.

    As of Tuesday 7:30am (12:30 UTC), the Peso (MXN) is trading under 19.84 per US Dollar (USD). Thus the Peso has gained almost 6% since late last week.

    Oops Computer guy. I was fast reading and thought they were talking about car. Please excuse me and thank you ComputerGuy for catching my error. I have no idea whether but doubt that Costco sells luggage wheels.

    Well, in 6 years I've never cleaned them, and energy production has been remarkably consistent year-to-year until now. Maybe the last 3 months have been abnormally dirty?-- kinda like a 100 year event of dirtiness? Anyway I check the inverter now and then and output is as expected, so cleanliness or lack thereof is not the culprit. Something is afoot at CFE if you ask me.

    Interestingly, if I were a Canadian I would be unhappy as to why the Loonie is in the pits, living in Mexico for them is 25%-30% higher vis the folks from the USA
