Geezer Vision

Did some late day skiing today with poor light and icy conditions. It reminded me that my night vision is not as good as it used to be. Very hard to discern the terrain in the fading afternoon light.
Most geezers enjoy the sunlit slopes but likely avoid night skiing. Many of my geezer friends have had cataract operations and fortunately have had sight restored to near 20-20 sharpness. I have skied with prescription goggles to avoid the hassle of ski goggles over glasses. Recently my distance vision has improved enough to eliminate vision correction on the slopes!! Good news.

It was good to get out today for a brief time even if the conditions were less than perfect. I can check it off as an official day by the rules of the Tough Old Geezer Skier group. Six runs an official day! Day 13 on the slopes for the season. Hope to make 17 before the New Year.
