Another adventure has begun! Had the cataract surgery on Monday. I admit to being scared witless beforehand😩. All in all it took less than an hour from when I got to the hospital to walking out the door! My surgeon was fantastic and explained things as he was proceeding. He was satisfied with how everything went.
Yesterday I had to go to Nelson to see my optometrist for my first follow up appointment.
When he tested my left eye, my vision is almost 20/20. He then suggested we pop the lense out of my glasses in order for me to be able to see with both eyes.
I will babble a bit now because I can not believe the difference!
You know the colour of snow on the side of the road when the pole truck goes by? That yellowish, greyish tiny it gets? Well that is what white looks like with my right eye! My left eye sees white; real bright white! ….and colours! Oh My! Blues, reds, purples and pinks are incredible!
I am having a problem with depth perception and feel headachy reading is a bit problematic. But I can see colour and they are bright and beautiful and so vibrant! This morning I just sat and looked at fabric in my stash. They look new to me with the full spectrum of colour being so rich.
I started knitting a pair of socks to have something to do with my hands. I’m not able to sew yet so my quilt is still under the needle unfinished and there are probably typos in this post , but you know what? It’s not a problem because I can see and will possibly only need reading glasses when I get my right eye done!
I’ve been wearing glasses since I was six years old and can’t believe how little I actually saw!
Life is grand!
I hope you are sewing today and enjoying the gorgeous colours in your world! Just make sure you wear sunglasses in bright sunlight or snowy days. The light is the biggest cause of cataracts 😎. Wishing you all a great day! Carol
