|OT: Thanks for the advice, but my recent vision loss has a specific cause, low pressure glaucoma, basically a contradiction in terms..|
Glaucoma, which causes loss of vision due to high pressure attacking the optic nerve, is poorly understood, while my version, where you get similar damage in spite of having lower pressures is not understood at all. Unfortunately there is no treatment for damage to the optic nerve except to try to prevent further occurrences.
There is an irony here. Ask my former students! Much to their dismay, I have, er, had always been able to look at a page of text and pick out an error immediately without even reading it properly, because they just jumped out at me. And I still remember the only spelling mistake I ever made during my decades of education, when I spelled 'necessary' with two Cs in Grade 6. Oh, the horror!
So I just have to get used to the idea of making errors without getting upset about it.
Meanwhile, I contemplate what to with do the huge collection of books I no longer derive pleasure from reading and re-reading. I used to be able to inhale a 200-page novel in a few hours, but now it would take days and days of tiring and laborious work to get through the same book.
Apologies for any misspellings...
