No! This was not part of my Halloween costume.
It was the result of surgery that I underwent on Wednesday to remove a lesion from the conjunctiva of my eye. Sounds nasty. Not one of the best of life's experiences, but let me warn you. The sun probably did this. All those hours of gardening outside, eyes unprotected. How come when I hike and I am at the beach I always wear sunglasses. But I go out into the garden and never think about putting on sunglasses. That will be changing from now on.
The Dr told me that this is not uncommon, although it is less common now than it was years ago. That was because people generally worked outside more and generally spent more time outdoors.
So, take this as a gentle warning. Don't just put on sunscreen put on the sunglasses too.
