I had an eye appointment today, it's actually the first one in four years! I can't believe I waited that long, well, actually I can. I just kept rationalizing with myself that it wasn't time yet. The glasses I've been wearing have attracted so many compliments, I was a little afraid I would never have such an attractive pair again. As anyone who wears glasses knows, they're important to you. They become a part of you. In fact my partner requested that I get a similar pair. I do love them but it couldn't wait any longer. The lenses are so severely scratched I can't see my computer monitor clearly anymore. Which is a big issue since I work with a computer all day long.
So I did something I've never done. First, through a little research I found a new optometrist. Then I booked an appointment. That was fairly exciting. The receptionist I spoke with on the phone asked for my birthday, I said October 9th and she exclaimed that it was her birthday too! What a strange coincidence! It seemed to be a good sign. I went in today and met with the optometrist. She was warm, friendly and knowledgeable. When she took my glasses to test the strength, she immediately asked how I could possibly see through them. It was bad. Apparently it was difficult to get a strength reading off of them too.
Everything went very well. My prescription has changed only slightly, which is great news and for the very time, I bought myself 2 pairs of glasses and on top of that, 1 pair of prescription sunglasses! Oh my goodness! It's very exciting. I can't wait to get them. This time I've gotten very bold, exciting colours. A vibrant emerald green frame and a very pale blue frame. The sunglasses are a brilliant purple. They're all very colourful. I was looking at another pair of sunglasses but they were much more muted. They were safer. I guess I was tired of being so safe with a black pair of glasses.
When I get them in I might post some photos. We'll see!
