Today, a Monday, may be as good a time as any to drop this into the conversation, and then drop it.
I spent a good bit of time with an ophthalmologist inasmuch as I have been experiencing some vision difficulties. While the left eye still tests 20/20, the right eye is approaching blindness quite rapidly. And since vision is such a key factor in reading my friends' blogs, and coincidentally in preparing my own, I cherish it. Long story short I have been diagnosed with Fuchs' dystrophy, the only lasting cure for which is corneal surgery. I have been referred to the surgeon who will assess and determine if and when posterior lamellar endothelial keratoplasty can be undertaken.
My doctor urges me to have the surgery, as he said virtually no one suffers from this condition in one eye only, and at some point, should the Lord permit me to live that long, the other eye will present with similar symptoms. The good news is that the surgery is almost always successful and the results are virtually good for a lifetime!
Lucky me. This condition affects, generally, fewer than one percent of the population.
And to further the more, BBBH, on the other
