Negligent ? How about if you kill or disable someone ? How about a family member ?

heh. OK. good point. I guess I pictured a fender-bender. My vision isn't bad in that way--it's a problem in the dark (I don't drive then) and reading, cooking, bird-watching, sewing. I have managed parallel parking lately--which I was never great at--with no problem.

I drove for 3 hours straight a couple of weeks ago, and it was fine...interstate, no traffic, familiar with the road, although first time I drove that car. I'm retired and live in a mid-sized town where I avoid driving at rush hour, such as it is. I don't even drive every day. And when I do, it's usually 10 minutes or so each way, rarely as long as half an hour. I don't put a lot of miles on my car, and when DH and I are together, he usually drives--and now, he always does. I no longer hop up and offer to drive people--I let them offer.

I've been growing this cataract for a few years. The problem isn't sudden, and the ophthalmologist didn't say it was urgent--he thought it was fine to postpone treatment for a few months.
