Well, erudition--with a little help from the work environment--certainly. I have yet to see humility raise its charming powers in Rapaire's case, but perhaps I have just not been paying attention properly.

In lens implants the default value is a monofocal lens, covered by most insurance. A multifocal lens with engineered planes to provide multiple focal distances, is considerably more expensive, but makes a big difference. That's what I got. I figured there are few things more worth spending dough on than the vital art of just seeing.

Here in San Diego, the difference was $1850 above insurance. Worth every penny already. The world is bright and light and full of beauty that I had lost connection with because the shadows of my old lens made my very sight seem jaded and somehow cynical. Odd, that.
