It has been a while since I last posted. Originally work was the main factor but with my continuing amazing luck I am back in the wars again. And nowhere near as heroic as these chaps.
I have been struggling with my eyesight for a number of months now with lots of "floaters", general blurring of everything in my right eye especially which I put down to age and the need for new glasses. I had also noticed an occasional visual disturbance as if there was a strand of silver tinsel glinting in the outside corner of my left eye. A visit to SpecSavers was made, followed by an immediate referral to the local hospital where I was diagnosed with a detaching left retina and cataracts.
I am now recovering from emergency surgery and effectively blind in my left eye for Gawd knows how long. With as yet untreated cataracts my field of vision extends to a maximum of about 10 inches from my right eye.
All in all not great. I can use my mobile phone and Kindle as they are back lit. Cannot even see the TV properly. Not sure when I will be back painting or gaming.
I have been able to view your posts by holding my mobile phone close up but until this evening could not leave comments using it. Hopefully this fix will work on all blogs whatever the moderation level you have.
Many thanks to my daughter for getting the mobile phone comments working and with this post.
