My problem: I just had cataract surgery and the doctor said that for the time being I should not life more than 25 pounds or otherwise overly exert myself.
The grass on my lawn is high and needs cutting badly. I have a walk-behind, self-propelled lawnmover that I can push with little effort. But how to start it?
I'm afraid that pulling on the cord that starts the thing could undue the good doctor's work. Can anyone think of a way I can rig up something to start the lawnmower without putting my eyesight in danger?

I think you should rather NOT want to mow. If anything to be avoided, it
would be the dust and pollen and crap the mower will kick into the air
that might get in your eye. Hire the neighbor kid.
I rested my eyes for about two days, indoors, and after that was good to
go and do anything. There's drops for the eyes on a schedule that lasts
about 40 days. You're doing that, right?
I didn't have to mow, I was lucky: it was wintertime.

You'll need a couple rubber tarp-tie-things - just find them along
the roadside. Duct tape them to your lawnmower's pull-cord ;
and hook the other end to your garage door - Ta - Da !
electric garage door opener does all the work !
