I think I’ve always had it – this little spot in my vision – in my left, good eye – just below the center. But a couple of months ago it became a lot more visible. Actually, it became quite annoying.
I decided to visit a doctor to see if anything could be done about this all too visible spider-like black thingy.
One of the most experienced ophthalmologist in Norway checked out my eye with an impressive range of sci-fi equipment. He looked me in the eye and said it wasn’t anything serious, just an annoying spot. If I were to fix it, it would involve complicated surgery that would most probably grow cataracts in that eye. “So, I don’t do the operation?”, I replied. “Right, you don’t. You learn to disregard the spot. Because you don’t see with your eyes. You see with your mind.”
Wow. How cool is that from an eye doctor?
And so I decided to learn to like this spot. It is a great reminder that there are still stuff in life I need to let go of 🙂
