Day ten post operation to repair a torn retina.
It started with foggy vision and lots and lots of floaters one morning. Went to the eye doctor the next morning, and was seeing a corneal expert that afternoon. Surgery was scheduled for the following day. Wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am. I went from relative normalcy to being blind in one eye. The cause being nothing more than age and genetics. Quite the shock for one that makes a living with their eyes.
The doctor said I might see some blackness in the lower region of my sight. Little did I realize when I did see the blackness was how absolutely pure and unflinchingly black it was.
The good news is that the retina was successfully repaired, but now I’m dealing with a cataract caused by the gas bubble in my eye that held the retina in place while it healed.
This will take some time.
