This morning, I had another appointment with the orthoptist. Now I know why (though I already suspected it) I had such difficulty reading, despite the glasses — since my last visit, the eyes had deteriorated again (and quite a lot). It’s been really quick, I noticed I had problems already a few weeks after I got the new glasses in June. The upside is that the situation now — that is, the degree of squinting — makes surgery an option. The eyes have to stabilize first though, so that we know there’s no further deterioration. I didn’t get a new prescription for glasses this time, only a lens in the form of adhesive plastic film attached to the old glasses (only on one eye, though). It’s very odd, since it’s slightly striped and makes vision on that eye blurry. The quicker this is over, the better.
To visit the orthoptist, I have to go to a suburb south of Stockholm. After the appointment, I took the opportunity to visit the nearby Woodland Cemetery (web page in English!), listed as a world heritage by UNESCO.
It was a very grey morning; rainy, damp and cold.
(There’s a small mouse on the right grave. But the tombstone in the middle is really original.)
