Well, Frank, you can now empathize with our Old  Master, Charles R. Knight. 
When he was six one of his little pals threw a rock  which hit his right eye, 
doing considerable damage. He wore a patch for a while  and recovered somewhat, 
but it has been said that today he would be considered  legally blind as his 
other eye wasn't that great either. Amazing that he created  all those 
wonderful drawings, paintings and sculptures despite that. Hope all  works well 
you. DV
