    Jy is ’n dapper vrou en verdien die operasie. My ma het ook so ’n operasie gehad en dit het haar hele lewe verander.

      Fantasties om te hoor dat die operasie jou ma se lewe verander het. Ek weet nog nie hoe baie dit my visie sal help nie, maar ek hou daarvan om weer “groot oë” te he!

    Woha that’s really brave. I had laser eye surgery years ago and after seeing a video of the procedure, it took me a year to work up the courage to give it more consideration. I had great vision for a while but now I have to resort to eyeglasses to see near as there was an over correction. Our eyes are so precious! Kudos to you Gerda.

      Dear Ingrid,As you will have noticed, I did not meet my deadline of having your mom’s post done before my surgery. Glad to hear you had a great result after your surgery. I continue to be astonished at the fine, detailed “fixes” that doctors can make these days. The day of blindness made me REALLY treasure my eyes again! Have a marvelous winter solstice celebration, with whatever traditions you have accumulated in a lifetime.

    I felt fortunate to have the eyelid surgery. Now I feel like my eyes are open before 11 a.m. I’m sorry that a little sac remains in the corner of one eye after eight years. Also, my eye lashes don’t curl as they used to, and applying eye liner is hit and miss. Maybe one of those is related to aging. I don’t know.

      So glad to hear of an eye-buddy who is happy about her surgery! I also have a little “stitch” in the corner of one eye, but it does not really bother me. You are wonderful to keep on with eye make-up–I have abandoned that long ago because of bad eyesight and shaky hands! Bravo to you!
