The aphakic gardener

At the beginning of this month of April, the gardener discovered a new way to see the world, and enriched his medical vocabulary. As a consequence of a cataract operation which did not work as expected, I temporarily have to live with an aphakic eye i.e. an eye without a lens. This simulation shows the result.

Grab the middle vertical line and drag it to the left or to the right.

Which means that–at the moment–I have Claude Monet’s Ultraviolet Eye. Well, having an aphakic eye does not automatically make you into an impressionist artist, but it’s an interesting experience anyway. Fortunately the under-gardener is helping a lot with the new plantations, digging, etc. and Spring has arrived to Papi Jo’s garden, so all is fine.
