Yesterday, just one week into the new year, I fulfilled my New Years Resolution. This is why it is important to pick CONCRETE resolutions people. The beauty lies in the one shot dealio.
Let me begin by saying why in the name of all that is holy does the eye doctor dude need as much medical/personal history as my gynecologist? How much I exercise is going to effect my eye sight how exactly? Can I drink myself blind? And what do you care what I'm taking to keep the crazy at bay?
Any way, there was a lot of baseline this and baseline that. Many, MANY pictures of my eye balls. Loads of, "What is the smallest line you can read?". Then some godforsaken pokey thing to check for glaucoma. (I was told that in the OLDEN day they used to numb your eye balls and poke them with pins! Or shoot puffs of air at them! Gah!)
So no glaucoma, retinal detachment, macular degeneration, blah, blah, blah. And eye doctor dude said I could just keep using my drug store reading glasses. BUT, I decided to get glasses for the office. A progressive lens with nothing on the top, a "middle distance correction" for the computer and a "near distance correction" for reading towards the bottom. This should eliminate me taking my cheaters on and off about a bazillion times a day, as well as my tendency to peer over the tops of said cheaters during meetings.
I anticipate these will take some getting used to. If anyone has trudged down this road before me, please advise. I? Will be resting on the laurels of the 100% success of my 2009 resolution!
