Early Japanese Cars
Friend Bill who belongs to Dar up in the North woods, has had a terrible time with his 'shooting eye,' many, many trips to the Doctor!
How is your eye sight? Did I mention here on the blog I met a new friend, Billy. He is blind. In the course of our conversation I asked about his blindness. He said he lost his sight during heart surgery when his blood pressure dropped too low.
A few years ago my sight was fading. I was already using bifocal glasses. I started seeing ‘halos’ around street lights at night. Sherry and I went to an eye doctor and he checked my eyes and ordered glasses.
When I went in to get the glasses the nurse put them on me and asked if anything was better? I frowned. I hate to send things back or return things to a store. So I hated to say, these are terrible. So I just said something doesn’t feel right.
She smiled saying, “That is what the doctor is concerned about. He was not completely sure, but now you have verified his feeling, you need cataract surgery. There is no charge for the glasses, but his recommendation is do it as soon as you can.”
I did, and my sight was great for years. BUT now, I am needing reading glasses again. I haven’t checked, but am wondering if they can replace the manmade lenses they inserted?
I am again at the point of halos around lights at night so I drive seldom at night. And for me, night and rain are a dangerous mix. Too many reflections and distractions to drive safely.
One of the highlights of our lives was having dinner with Bill Irwin, famous for being the only blind man to ever thruhike the Appalachian Trail. He was a Joy to meet and was then an international motivational speaker.
But it is wonderful what they can do for healthy eyes with the cataract surgery. Have you ever heard of a situation like my new friend Billy?
By the way, how is your eyesight?
