Answer:  HIGH EYEQ

(That is definitely a groaner!  This is the kind of stinky pun that gives puns a bad name.  The cartoon kind of has a 1940s/1950s horror movie quality to it.  The doc’s eyes kind of make him look like a mad scientist!

There were no new clue words today, and only “turet” has been used before as a jumble.  Nice answer letter layout.  Nothing obvious there.   Hopefully, the doctor is just doing LASIK or LASEK surgery.  I should get that done myself.  Fun Jumble!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Loved the “stinky” pun! I had to think a second for ENOUGH. The final answer, though obvious after the fact, took a few seconds to figure out. I got EYE, then HIGH and finally Q.

    Great pun. I (eye) figured one of the answer words had to be EYE.

    UR, I got LASIK back in 2000. Best thing I ever did. Got rid of the glasses I had worn since Jr. High. Eyes have been around 19-21/20.

    That’s great, Damid! I am extremely nearsighted. Have been since 7th grade. It only got worse over the years. It might have stabilized some, but now I also have the age related farsightedness, so I wear a kind of tri-focal transition lenses. Even with my glasses on, I can barely read what I’m typing. The various eye doctors I’ve seen over the years have not been all that optimistic about my potential laser surgery results.

    Sorry to hear that, UR. I think they said that some extreme cases it might not work. Fortunately, it worked out for me.

    Unc, you need to ask your doc about computer glasses. When I’m wearing my no line glasses, I have a hard time reading the screen. But, the doc can give you a prescription for “computer” glasses that are, for the lack of a medical explanation, between your far and nearsightedness…I love mine. I can see the screen on my computer clearly. Maybe something like that would help. LL

    Progressives. Had ’em. Still very tough because my lifelong nearsightedness dominates. Prescription nearsighted corrective lenses actually bring things into focus by making things a little smaller. Just got a new pair of progressive specs, and things ARE better, just not great. — YUR
