EOL: Giving My Eye One Last Meal
Well, a half expected phone call came through earlier which has meant that I have a little less time to spend with my natural born right eye.
As a result of some rapid deterioration in my left eye the corneal graft that we managed to postpone last year was recently rescheduled to the middle of next month. However after the aforementioned phone call, it’s now been moved to Monday.
Just to clear things up: My right eye is in a worse state than my left – so the idea is to try to repair the right eye with a graft before the left eye gets to a stage where I can no longer see at all.
Anyway, with pretty much just the weekend left before I’m walking about with someone else’s cornea in my head, I’m trying to work out what the best method of ‘sending off’ my cornea is… Of course, given that me and my current corneas are all movie geeks I figure a classic sci-fi marathon is the way to go.
On top of the list is BLADE RUNNER, not only because it is an awesome film, but it has that whole artificial eye sequence going for it too. I’m sure I can crank out a list of ‘Last meal’ movies for my right eye to enjoy before its cornea gets cast into the operating room trash can, but I’m looking for suggestions: Hit the comments with some classic sci-fi that I can send ‘Old Righty’ off with!
