This series began before I had double eye surgery for cataracts. I have always had bad eyesight, being born with high myopia. It never stopped me from doing anything I’ve wanted. Glasses always made me feel as if there was a wall between myself and the rest of the world. Contact lenses helped relieve this feeling. As I aged, I developed cataracts and glaucoma. While it never affected me doing photography, there were times I wondered what the world looked liked if I allowed it to control what I saw, photographing as I allowed the haze and cloudiness to take over. Surgery was needed for cataracts and successful. I now have 20/20 vision. In the process, I began to explore the interior/exterior illusion of the world around me.
For the last four years my glaucoma was being wkept under control by eye drops and a pill. Unfortunately, over the last year, my eye pressure has been creeping steadily upwards. Wish me luck, as you are looking at this post today, I will undergo the first of two surgeries for glaucoma.
As per my surgeon’s instructions, there will be no computer time for at least two to three days.
