If you have had cataract surgery, or a lensectomy to correct your vision, please relate your recovery experiences vis-a-vis hiking and climbing. I'm particularly interested in recovery time, and whether you had any problems with altitude, or difficulty focusing on your hands, or problems with balance.
I normally wear contacts in the outdoors, but am presbyopic. Over the years I've had some tough experiences with contact lenses in the outdoors (but contacts proved far better than glasses, especially because the latter fogged in cold weather). I am not a candidate for lasik, and am advised to have both biological lenses replaced.
