Not exactly, because I’m free to come and go, I just can’t go far. I drove to a nearby convenience store this afternoon – about 1/4 mile away and no traffic, wide streets, etc. I do not have depth perception on the sides – I can see fine in front of me, although I have some difficulty telling how far I can pull up and not hit anything. Consequently, I never pull up close enough.
So here I sit today, doing nothing, trying to remember not to lean over or to pick up anything heavy. The one thing I should be doing is to vacuum the carpet, but I tell myself that’s probably too much strain on my eye muscles. Great excuse anyway!
In case anyone should think I ought not to have driven today, I will say that my vision was pretty sketchy throughout the morning. All the sudden it was like the filmy curtains were pulled back and I could see quite clearly. I grabbed my keys and was off like a bolt of lightning. Of course I had just gotten out of the driveway when I thought better of the idea, but had to go down to turn around in the convenience store parking lot. The clerk was wowed that I was driving that big truck!
