From cataract to clarity

About a year ago, I went to an optometrist to replace prescription sunglasses. After examining my eyes, she told me I had a cataract forming on my right eye. I responded to her comments with a polite thank you, and thought to myself that a cataract diagnosis assumes that I am a mortal. It assumes that my substance is matter, and that matter can involuntarily accumulate and become aged. But I was certain that, as God’s child, I was spiritual, not material.

The optometrist suggested it was not an urgent need, but I would have to address it sometime. I have always trusted God as my help, and I knew that would be true this time, too. 

A few months later I was working on a paper at my computer, and my right eye suddenly became very foggy. I instinctively tried to wipe the fogginess away, but it wouldn’t budge. Then I remembered the dire prediction of the optometrist, and I became fearful. I needed to read this paper aloud at a meeting in a few days, so I decided to call a Christian Science practitioner for prayerful help.
