Visual effects during surgery

Visual images during cataract surgery

Watercolor representations of what I saw during each cataract procedure

These are the paintings I gave to my doctor to show what I saw during cataract surgery on each of my eyes. The colors were more muted during the second surgery (on the left), possibly because I didn’t have any sedative medication for that procedure.

Each time I saw half a “cup” shape. The salt technique in watercolor painting works well to depict what it looked like when they were breaking up the cataract. They suction that out and put the new lens in. I have 20/20 vision in both eyes now!
