It’s difficult to put out a lot of money to buy something, even when it’s something you need to conduct your daily life. In my case, something that’s been part of my life since the age of 8 is eyeglasses.
It had been nearly 4 years since I’d had an eye exam. I should have done it when I was still working and had vision coverage. I didn’t do it. Over the last few years it’s become increasingly difficult to see in general and hard to read in particular. For me with my specific kind of nearsightedness, it had actually become easier to read Without my glasses on. That meant however that the book, newspaper or do-dad had to be about 3 inches from my nose. Not a pretty sight.
I decided it was time. I went for the exam. My question regarding the exam is why the heck do they put the drops in your eyes Before the exam. Your eyes are all fuzzy and then they say “Which is better…One or Two…Two or Three…Three or Four?” You JUST put drops in my eyes! Regardless of this I have to admit I must have gotten the best exam ever because I’ve never seen so well with such clarity both close up and at a distance EVER!
Oh I guess you want to see my glasses, right? It was tricky to explain to Ralph how I wanted the photo. In the end I decided I didnt’ like any of them. I’ll have to work on it. But never fear.
Ele, Kristen and I decided to go out for coffee last night, just to catch up. We always have the best time and this was no different. Lots of talk about books and boys and life.
I was proud of myself…Just Coffee…I won’t mention about the other ladies. 😉
Now the unveiling…
I like my new glasses. I think I look very studious. AND I CAN SEE!! Excellent. Worth the money? As long as I’ve been wearing glasses, I’ve never thought they were worth the money and this is the Most I’ve ever spent. But Boy do they work well. I’ll have to skimp somewhere else.
Think I’ll go read a book, because I can actually see it now!!
