I know – pretty scary. But this image shows why I’m going in for surgery today. Excess fat in my eyelids pushes my eyelashes down into my field of view making everything a bit blurry. I’ve been trimming my eyelashes with a scissors for the last few years, but aside from being dangerous and difficult to do, this practice comes with it’s own special side-effects including the way the eyelash stubble irritates the skin underneath my eyes. Who’d a thunk growing old could be such a pain?
I’ll look pretty bad for a few days, but I promise to post follow-up pictures as soon as I’m presentable.
