Special Places # 36
Some Words from the Author
I wish that you forgive me for not replying your comments from last Friday on, because I was operated of my right eye that makes it difficult lto use the the computer since I can not stand the light that causes tremendous pain to my eye. I should start by explaining how this started…two years ago I was making preparatives to be operated of a case of starting cataracts in both my eyes, the the eye specialist told me that I had Pterhygium “ Surfer Syndrome” which is that people that spend a lot of time under UV light, beach, fishing, outdoors, etc. Right after I was operated of both eyes, The eye specialist was reluctant to operate the cataracts. Then the lockdown started for Covid-19. However, my vision was decreasing and having difficulty to read text and I noticed the lack on intensity of colors. So, I was reccomended another eye specialist by a friend as a second opinion. This doctor found that my corneas have the curvatures warped that would make it impossible to correct with any glasses, therefore, the cataracts are not the cause but corneas.The operation is to reshape the corneas and have normal measures.Once the corneas are corrected and healed,Then, the cataracts will be removed and interocular lens inserted, this will correct my eye sight.
Thank you for your understanding. H.J.
