A few people have asked what the deal is with my eyes among other things. I have a cataract. Yes, I am awfully young for it. The biggest problem is that the type I have grows really quickly. So, in about 6 months I've lost a good portion of my ability to see clearly. Here's what it looks like
It's such a problem at night because when light hits my eye I can't see anything but white and halos. It's really weird because my right eye is still in pretty good shape so it's doing double duty. I don't really know how to explain it any better. I have almost no depth perception any more and I need to squint a lot in order to not have double vision when I'm reading. Which makes me pretty tired. So I'm pretty frustrated a lot of the time lately and I have to go pretty slowly when cooking or working in the lab. I also seem to be tripping a lot. Even more than usual... LOL!
Anyway, so that's a pretty good representation of what it looks like through my eye right now. I'm hoping that will be much improved in the near future. I'm trying to stay positive; but I have the occasional outbursts most likely stress induced. I really can drive myself nuts!
Spark on my friends! I'll catch you later.
