The eye doctor’s office walls are retina-thin, and that is how, as my pupils widened under the influence of drops, I heard her explain to the man in the next room that he had advanced glaucoma.

I’m not going to lie to you,, she said. This is pretty bad.

The man muttered resigned assent to the treatment ahead, to the application of more powerful eyedrops, to appointments every week or two.

This is not going to be a walk in the park, the doctor said.
