Do you find that the bright light affects you more now? My wife's mother had the surgery, and is doing fine, but she says that sunglasses a re now a must. Welcome back.
i was told the same thing, but i have always been light sensitive, sunglasses always have been a requirement on all but the cloudiest of days. made a mistake recently tho, used the yellow shooting glasses of a friend while at the range.... when i took them off it was like looking into a blizzard, bright white for a few minutes afterward.... not fun at all
Both Jean and I use photochromic lenses, that automatically darken in sunlight.
It works well for her...and for me too, of course.
We get the darker of the two possibilities.
You can't get polycarbonate photochromic lenses, so our glasses are not as absolutely fragment-protective as would otherwise be possible, but they seem good enough to use when shooting.
Our optometrist has reassured us about this.
Anyway, the point is that our sunglasses and our regular prescription glasses are the same. No need to carry two pairs. It's very convenient.
(Jean's glasses are bifocals: uncorrected at the larger top, and corrected for reading at the bottom.)
