Tuesday I had a follow-up appointment to check on a posterior vitreous detachment in my right eye that happened six weeks ago. As usual, it required having my eye dilated, which I hate with a passion, even as I understand the need for doing it as I’ve had retinal issues in the past. Long story short, all’s well although there’s nothing that can be done about the new floaters that resulted. Apparently it’s a fairly common occurrence after cataract surgery on extremely myopic eyes.
The good news is, I used the visit as an opportunity to have a new refraction done to check on my prescription. My new glasses are still under warranty, so there will be no cost to update them to the new prescription. And now I can get the additional magnification that I want in order to do the kind of close work I most love, having found that the original Rx wasn’t strong enough.
Today my eyes are back to normal and there’s a full moon tonight.* I’m thinking a white-on-black companion patch might be just the thing.
Process notes: reverse appliqué with plain black and white linen, blanket stitch edging with one strand of variegated green floss and one strand of solid green floss. Note to self: next time be sure to trim the black linen more closely so it doesn’t show through.
* or maybe the truly full moon is tomorrow night? My moon phase app seems to be a bit off
