Re: Private Clinic for Cataract Op.

I would agree that if cataracts have reached the stage of causing cloudiness then acupuncture may be too late but methinks it worth trying when in early stages ...

distance glasses problem

I was recently advised to wear glasses for distance vision (have not needed such previously) ... but I am finding it very difficult to adjust to said specs ... my vision seems blurred rather than sharper/improved ... the optician suggested I use the new glasses in the house for a couple of weeks ......

Re: when to plant ...

my thanks to s-l and gerrynag for your responses/info ... in retrospect, I realised my question was a pretty dumb one ... the obvious thing for me to do was to go to my local vivero and see what they were selling ... hence I have planted some tomatoes and peppers to date ...
