Last year my eyesight suddenly worsened, deteriorating to less than 0.1 vision even with correction.
      When I went to the doctor to find out what was wrong, I was told the eye lenses were distorted.
      Surgery was performed immediately to partially remove the lenses and insert artificial ones.
      During the operation, the movement of the eyeballs was stopped, but the operation began with my seeing as I normally see.
      Then it felt like I was inside a tunnel of light.
      When the bandages were removed three days after the operation…everything looked distorted!
      A 350ml can of beer on the supermarket shelf looked like a mini-sized 250ml can.
      I felt cheated.
      Was the surgery a failure?
      Would my eyesight remain this way for the rest of my life?
