Funny thing about eyesight …….. I like it.
I was using an old pair of glasses for the last six months or more. I was using them because my most recent prescription glasses broke – really broke and were very scratched.
Now I need to tell you about the prescription. I have been wearing progressive lens for several years now. They help me to both see distance and read up close with no lines as in bifocals. I adjusted quickly to them when I first started wearing them.
Well, about five years ago I got a new pair – the ones that are now scratched and broken. Yes, five years ago. THAT IS BAD. I do not know why I waited this long. I came to the place that the burning eyes, when on the computer, were unbearable.
So, head down, I walked into the local Target Optical, where I bought the last pair, and had an eye exam. Thankfully, they did not yell at me or shame me. I did enough of that to myself. They did, however, already make me an oppointment for next year – without asking me. I took that as the “yelling”.
After handing over a minor fortune – on sale, mind you – I waited for the day they came into the shop. I sent my husband to pick them up, thinking I would go in for an adjustment when this “bug” of a cold finally left my body. Well, a week later, bug and all, I went in to say I can’t use my iPhone or laptop – I cannot adjust my eyesight. Haven’t posted a blog in a while .
Well, after sitting there with a lovely, young lady for about twenty minute, she realized that the original measurements taken for my eyesight to work with progressive lens, was wrong. She re-measured and ordered new lens! I CAN SEE! I CAN SEE!
Moral of the story is ——- do not neglect your health in any way. Get those eye exams regularly.
Did I mention that I CAN SEE???????
