I'm a writer through and through. I had a 34-year career as a technical writer, and now I write novels, screenplays, online classes, and nonfiction books. My vision started getting hazy even with my TRIFOCALS, so I went to the eye doctor. As typical for my age, I discovered I had cataracts. YIKES!
Yesterday (5/4/2021) I visited a specialist in San Antonio, and my cataracts need to come out. Because I spend so much of my time writing, researching, reading, creating content, or editing, they suggested Trifocal Multifocal lenses for the lasik procedure -- the bottom item in this graphic.
There is a MANUAL surgery option. See this next graphic.
I cringe to even think of manual surgery. I was told that sometimes, fragments of the cataract may remain in your eye to cause problems (more surgery). Manual is not perfect.
Either way, the out of pocket cost is way, way beyond my budget!
I'm in the process of writing book #20, which is the sequel to The Last Dog, a dystopian set in 2087. This is going to turn into a series, I can feel it in my bones.
I currently have three series:
- The Alcott Family Adventures cozy mysteries (Hot Chocolate, Bitter Chocolate, and Spicy Chocolate)
- Thol sci fi-fantasy (Prophecy of Thol, Gifts From Thol, Love of Thol, King of Thol)
- Bonded adult shapeshifter (Bonded, Tothars, Tilted, Unforeseen).
There's something for everyone.
Every day I spend untold hours on my laptop and my iPad. A typical day probably logs 6-12 or more hours of using my eyes on one of those devices working, researching, editing, doing publishing things, working with contractors in my publishing world, sifting through emails, reading recipes... and, yeah, writing!
Writing is what I do. I absolutely love to create. Please help me pay for this lasik surgery so I can keep writing and reading! I really need your help!
Anything you can chip in will be greatly appreciated.
