I have never heard of someone getting their vision restored to 20-20 when it hadn't been since childhood, but I think it's great. They can do so much these days!
My vision wouldn't be improved with surgery, according to my last eye appointment, but I think that if someone's would, then they should have it done.
The gloves are a great idea, and yes, the plastic patch should help, too.
Good luck, and congratulations again!
