Went to my eye Doctor yesterday for my follow up after surgery and he insisted that I play video games for my re-hab. Not just any video games but racing video games until I got really good at it and if I succeeded he would recommend that I would be allowed to drive a real car again, maybe in a month. How cool is that?! My wife was cracking up, obviously my Dr. didn't know I played Cars.
So far I have tried some slow laps at Donnington (before I couldn't see the track into the valley), Silverstone National ( before I couldn't see the end of the fence at the first right) and some of the new Mojave tracks. Really seeing the game for the first time now and it is awesome! Hopefully the double vision will go away quickly and I can speed things up a bit.

Some things I missed while my vision was going bad:
Toes, I can see my toes!
1080P is awesome! Can't wait to see what 4K looks like!
LED traffic lights!

Cheers!
Project CARS is the best racing game!

It must be a Wookie named Dr Bell who prescribe this treatment!

Get well soon and take care!

Well I'm going to have to wish you NOT get well soon, you need lots of eye exercise with pCars to get maximum benefit. Doctors orders.

On another note, I'm sure you wife will love the fact you can compliment her now you can see those fancy clothes she likes (hint hint)

Wishing you speedy recovery otherwise
