101 Words - A blessing in disguise
I have cataracts. My eyes went bad after a year of multiple major surgeries. Apparently our eyes can react badly to such trauma and the medications that go along with it.
I went from seeing adequately in reading specs (fully ignoring the long range vision needs) to full-on coke bottle bottom glasses. They make me look bug eyed and not at all attractive.
They’re a blessing in disguise, these cataracts. The surgery to replace the lenses will correct my vision. Completely. Until the day I die. No matter what type of vision I had before, the surgery will correct it. Twenty/twenty.
