My blogging has been erratic lately and
I should explain why.
l went to the ophthalmologist back in July.
I was told then that I had cataracts starting
and to come back if I noticed a change
I was fine for a while.
Then I starting noticing that I was having
I bought different reading glasses,
thinking that would help.
It did not.
I started having trouble driving at night.
Approaching car headlights made huge
halos of light.
Sometimes the halos covered both lanes
I was in Denver a couple weeks ago
and needed to drive at night.
There are literally thousands of lights in downtown Denver.
Add to that all the headlights and taillights
of hundreds of cars.
Everything was one massive halo.
I had to park the car and get someone else
to get me home.
As soon as I got back to Maine I went to the doctor
and told him about the changes in my vision.
They did what is called a glare test
and determined that my cataracts were severely
worse and that I needed to have them
removed as soon as possible.
In Maine “as soon as possible” means January.
In the meantime my drawing/tangling
is significantly decreased.
That would be why you are seeing more
“color” posts from me.
My left eye is 20/70,
my right is 20/40.
I have a pair of distance glasses that correct
my vision to 20/20
but they are only for distance.
So I can drive in the daylight.
And I’m at the point where I’m not real
comfortable with that now either.
So please be patient while I wait to get
my eyes fixed and I can get back to tangling.
This photo above is actually a small block
of a larger piece I’ve been working on off and on
for the past year. I love the colors.
I am using an 005 micron to make tiny
delicate lines. Can’t do too much of that right now,
so it is on my To-Do list for when I can see again.
What are you working on?
Is it inspired by the season?
I’d love to know!
