Foundation Fighting Blindness

October 30th, 2011 by admin

Foundation Fighting Blindness had a huge success last evening at their wine tasting for sight fund raising event at the Greenbrook Country club. Over 300 people enjoyed the many great wines and also the fabulous food. I met many interesting people.  My memoir on losing my sight from Retinitis Pigmentosa was in the silent auction paired with a Osteria Glotto Dinner.
I will be setting up a team called The Herkert Clan for the Foundation’s Vision Walk in Central Park, NY in the spring. Date TBA. Our team goal will be to raise a minimum of $1,000 for the fight to cure blindness. All are invited to be on my team. Watch for up-dates.

Woke up blind in one eye.

October 21st, 2011 by Julia Spencer

Wow, what a week. I woke up last Thursday blind in my right eye. It was red shot, and I had some discomfort and much concern.

After much ado, I was at my ophthalmologist at 8am. It was not my RP eye disease but my Len’s, which was inserted after a cataract was removed, was leaning on my eye and making it bleed. The back of my eye was full of blood, and my eye pressure was 31.

After a week of doctor’s appointments and daily eye drops I am recovering slowly and have regained some of my sight back. As the blood drains I hope to regain  what sight I had plus a lower eye pressure. It’s a waiting game.

With all that happening I still managed to get to my book discussion and book signing at Long Beach library. Thank you Carly for all your help and Tom for visiting us. Having already read my book your comments were helpful.  I had a great audience. Thank you all.
