I can't see clearly now

I have been absent so long, the look of blogging has changed.
Am I in the right place?
I have been struggling with my diminishing eyesight.
It has come on so fast I am a little bit scared of going blind.
They say that cataract surgery is quite common place....
Not so common that there is no public waiting list.
18 months for the local bloke to do the op for free or
March 2014 or $2000.00
I don't think I can wait that long so I am working on some fundraising.
Just to give you an idea of the deterioration, this is with  both eyes open
This is what happens when the good eye is shut.

Both eyes open

Good eye shut.

I have been making a few things lately but the dog/ black puppy Stella
crunched my camera and broke the LCD screen which makes taking photos even harder.
I think I will have to buy a new one.

So scary to think about failing eyesight.
I think a donation button might be okay.
