Eyes dilated from a visit to the optometrist, I realize how precious my sight. I can’t work on the computer, paid work or my own, can’t see anything, everything is blurry, too bright. My eyes feel swollen, achy, dry and itchy. I can’t focus to read a book, take a walk or even sit still outside, and when I try to watch TV, I have to close my eyes and just listen. Finally, I give up and sleep.
