With My Apologies

letter-i

I recently had a cataract removed, and a new multi-focal lens implanted. For the first time in my life I’m able to see things clearly. Years ago, a coworker who had her eyesight corrected, told me that she never realized that stars were different colors. I’ll have to wait a few more days, but I’m looking forward to a clear night away from the city to check that out.

However, as part of the pre-operative procedures, the ophthalmologist used a special marker, and first made a mark over my right eye to indicate that was the eye upon which he’d be doing the procedure.

Since the procedure was being partially done using a laser, he then had me stare straight ahead and used the special marker to mark two spots on my eyeball to help align the laser during the procedure.

I have to admit that…

(Wait for it)

It was the first time I ever had my eye dotted.
