The eyes have it
Tuesday, October 27, 2020
I had my annual eye exam today. Because I am Diabetic and I am on Plaquenil for my lupus, my exam is longer than many. It didn’t help that the doctor was running almost an hour behind! Dad drove me (as usual), and had one errand to do while I was in my exam, so he ended up sitting and waiting in the car for an hour and a half. Good thing he brought the paper to read! He did end up coming in the office to see what the hold up was, but I was just getting up and getting ready to go when he came in the door. I am eligible through my insurance for a new pair of glasses this year... even though my prescription hasn’t changed. I picked out purple metal frames. They are very similar to the ones I currently have... except less worn out...: and more purple! I wear bifocals (and have had them for almost 10 years now), so the fact that neither part of my prescription has changed at all is marvelous. Usually my prescription gets just a little worse each year. He has to dilate my eyes for part of the exam so my eyes are wonky right now. I am having trouble focusing on the words on the screen. It will go away shortly (ish)... wherever you are in the world I hope you have a marvelous day!
