Mine eyes have seen the Glory
As many of you know,I've had some serious vision problems of late...
For me..one who has never had anything wrong with my eyes..
to be suddenly deprived of the precious sense of sight has been more than just a bit overwhelming, but simply downright devastating..
never more have I been so aware of how unassumingly we take this gift for granted as I have of these recent days.
earlier in the week, I'd been out and about running errands..
and finally a beautiful opportunity was presented..
grabbed Nikon and started clicking..
headed home planning to edit and do a post..
one thing led to another..nothing was done to the photos..
after a fitful night of non-sleep..I was up and ready for my third follow-up appointment with the retina specialist. nothing more than the routine numbing drops, dilations..tests..more tests, read the eye chart with eyes covered, uncovered!
the doctor comes in to examine my eyes..finally she asks me questions, then tells me no new changes have occurred.. which I think is okay..i think? exam over..
Leaving the office,I'm thinking okay by late afternoon, the lighting again will be perfect from then until dusk for a place I've wanted to shoot in long shadows.
so.. i go home, have some lunch..and my eyes are still very blurry..it dawns on me then..
I cannot do anything because I cannot focus!.
no computer work,no camera shoots..nothing.
I decide to go take a nap!
Logic/panic tells me rest cures MOST ailments..
DO IT NOW!
This is 3:00 in the afternoon..I do not wake until 7:30 pm..
and I still cannot focus!! my eyes are still dilated!..
For three days..I have done nothing that required using my eyes for long periods of time..
I did check in with the doctor..she informed me this is not an uncommon occurrence..use artificial tears hourly to keep my eyes lubricated, and rest!..
If i need her, she is on call for the weekend.
Do you have any idea what it is like to be so vision deprived? neither did I!
I've been so very obedient thus far..
so I'm headed over to Beverly's for her Party today..
want to join me? come on!
