Weekly Photo Challenge: Down February 19, 2012
February 20, 2012 by siggiofmaine
I don’t often travel Bridge Hill …
the Bucksport Road…
driving towards town in daylight.
I took someone
to a doctors appointment
just past this spot
and was amazed
that since my cataract surgery,
I could see the buildings
across the river…
down at the bottom of the hill
and see how the streets
on the other side were “layered”.
The yellow building
is a new construction
on High street
and then I can see
the houses on Beals Avenue
on the street literally above.
This is probably
to anyone but me…
but looking down Bridge Hill
was a mind boggling event

I’m having my second eye done tomorrow and am wondering how different things will be when both work the same

It was a miracle for me for the first eye, then WoW on the second eye. Some people don’t think they have much of a difference but
I still notice somethings I thought were a certain color, are brighter, whites, are really white.. I never was drawn to white flowers .
and now can spot them from a distance .. that and seeing birds in trees. Hope you are please with the results.

PS .. let me know what you experience … I cannot imagine life before the surgery … it must have been so sad

I was near-sighted in one eye, far sighted in the other … it was amazing the transition being quite easy.
One friend found she still needed reading glasses at times, I found the adjustment reading was where I placed the book/paper
.. old habits stick around sometimes. I now after 10 or 11 years ( it was around when I started on facebook and realize I don’t have
the date .. big sigh… )
I do have cataract paintings from 2011 ( before the surgery ) and I have for the past year-ish been needing reading glasses for fine print.
Every one has a little different path but most people .. there is always the exception … are happy with the changes .. I still remember how happy I was and still tell the stories of seeing islands I thought were peninsulas, and realizing how bird watchers could see in the trees..
and how hunters could see deer.
