Eye See

It's time to give blogging a go.

My mom fell yesterday.
She is in her mid 80's and unfortunately, falls can be fairly common among seniors. She is a little bruised up, but mostly o.k. The main thing is a bit of right eye injury. Her vision in that eye is a little blurry. The doctor said the cornea was roughed up some, but will heal. One of those times people say, "One day at a time." Which brings me to the flipside of the coin.

I am in my 40's and my vision is still very good. That works out well because I make my living with my eyes. I am a professional photographer.
I have 3 sisters, and they all wear glasses. They have since they were kids.  Mom and dad also wear glasses. So somehow, I just got the "good eyes" gene. And I am the only photographer in the family. And yes...of course I feel fortunate. Not saying photographers have to have good vision, but it sure helps. For instance, when working with DSLR (digital single lens reflex) cameras, glasses can interfere with focus. Diopter lenses built into many DSLRs can combat vision problems, but I know that determining image focus can still be problematic.
