The long and short of it is that I have eye problems due to a sinus disease. Because of this disease, the muscles in my eyes are pulling my eyes inwards. Even with glasses having prism to try to correct this, my eyes and mind strain to produce a correct image. This leads me to being fatigued in a very short amount of time when I do things up close (such as programming on a computer).
So, I haven't been able to work on Version 7 like I would like...
However, I have been seeing specialists and doctors to find a solution to this issue. The past few weeks I have undergone many tests, physicals, interviews with a hospital, all to get ready to have a procedure done to correct my vision.
This Thursday (9-13-07), I will be put under and have surgery done to both of my eyes. Basically they will sever the muscles from the inside of both eyes and re-attach them further back on the eye to compensate for my condition.
There's an 80% chance this will work correctly with one surgery and I'll be good as new after fully healing. This should eliminate any fatigue I've been experiencing and release the pressure on my muscles so my eyes can perform correctly.
After recovery, I should be able to throw my glasses away and work on the computer for many hours on end, and finally, work on Version 7 that way I want to.
