• In Response to: A health note from the editor (Christian Clemmensen)

Doctors revealed this morning that my eye surgery last Thursday has proven unsuccessful. The procedure carried an 80% chance of success, but unfortunately my retina is continuing to leak and thus lead to vision loss, albeit at a temporarily slower pace.

I am scheduled for a more invasive procedure (a full vitrectomy) this next Thursday (the 29th) that carries a greater chance of success. Resumption of activities after this surgery will be slower given its more extensive duration. The doctors are confident, however, that almost all of my current vision in the eye can be saved for several more years.

With my other eye, I managed to finish five reviews (three new, two re-writes) during my recovery from the last surgery and I'm going to attempt to get them published before the next surgery knocks me out more thoroughly.

I want to extend my thanks to the nearly 100 Filmtracks readers who have sent their well-wishes. I greatly appreciate the support. This round of surgeries is extremely frustrating. That's really all I can say at this point. We'll know in another week if the second one works. If it doesn't, the options get nastier.

Christian
