weekend #21 – after eye surgery

May 22nd, 2015 by BLOGitse received 11 Comments »

 

Hi everyone!

 

I had a break last weekend because of an eye surgery.

5 days face down was quite hard but now it’s over!

Here’s an animated video to get the idea….

 

 

 

 

‘If the surgeon places an intraocular gas bubble in the eye

(to maintain retinal reattachment while the eye heals from surgery),

the patient will have to maintain a face-down position postoperatively.’

 

read more here

 

 

I still have that gas bubble but it’s getting smaller every day.

Only problem is to look straight down when the bubble

makes the vision unsharp. Painting, writing  etc. isn’t easy..

I shut that eye when I paint! :)

 

Here’s my abstract ‘one eye vision’ acrylic painting

for
