The Eyes Have It

I'll be missing in action next week. I'm having my first cataract surgery. Yes, I'm that old. I know you didn't think so from my photo. Ha! I know better. So, if I don't hop around much next week, please cut me a break. My optometrists and ophthalmologists have been tracking them for over six years. Now, they're finally "bad enough" by the standards of my insurance company for removal. 

Our eyes are so important to our writing. We observe, write, edit--everything with our eyes fully engaged. As my sight took that gradual dimming that comes with age, I knew I'd have to do something. Glare is a constant companion. In fact, when I edit either on screen or on paper, I found the glare to be more than distracting.

Here's hoping that that problem will be gone soon! By the way, I'm opting for multi-focal lens implants. I'll be saying "Goodbye!!!!" to glasses, my hated companion for fifty-one years. (Now, be a sweetie and don't try to figure out my age from that tidbit. ;-)

Hopefully, I'll be a better blog-visitor when this is all done. Keep your fingers crossed!

In Two Weeks: The Book Pusher is back!

  1. My eyes are so tired after a day on the laptop. Remember to take breaks when you're back in action, Zan Marie and good luck with the eye op!

  4. Good luck on the surgery! I hope it goes smoothly and the recovery is quick. I've had reading glasses for a few years now but I don't think it will be long before I need them full time.

  5. Love the idea of saying goodbye to glasses! I can't imagine myself without them. What a brand new feeling it must be not to have to rely on them all the time!
