Kentucky Color: Dull and Drab to Bright and Clear
By Billy Joe Fudge
My good friend Dr. Max recommended that I go ahead with cataract surgery a couple of years ago and I just was not in a good place to dive into it at that time. Now, after finally getting to the point that I was tired of seeing double out of my right eye and suffering a nighttime glare in both eyes which made it almost scary trying to drive, especially on rainy nights; I went for it!
Now, I am surely one happy camper with two new lenses and a new lease on life. Reading glasses are still needed to be see things up close but that is not a downer for me. So, with 20/20 vision I stand amazed at how dull and drab the world had become. Due to the slow progression of cataracts, I suppose that I had adjusted to life with less than perfect vision without really realizing how "less than perfect" my eyesight had really become.
I go outside at night and just stand looking up into the night I sky I remember from my past. A whole new Universe of bright shiny stars twinkle for me and planets wink at me while my old friend, the Man in the Moon smiles down on me once again.
I am so thankful for dedicated souls in the medical business from researchers, to inventors to doctors, to nurses and to all who are blessed by God with knowledge, understanding and the skills necessary to turn my world from dull and drab to bright and clear.
