Eye Exam

Making the rounds for regular health checkups this month. Today was vision, next will be dental, followed by medical. It's been at least five years since my last eye exam (I'm sure I've had these glasses since I started school), so it seemed like I was about due.

Happily everything seems to be fine. My right eye is about the same, and my left eye is just slightly weaker. This is apparently why my vision hasn't seemed as sharp during the last six months or so. So what the heck, I'll spring for a new pair of glasses (there goes the tax refund). :)

In a display of iron resolve, I was able to get through the glaucoma test the first time without ruining the results by flinching. Also, my eyes are still dilated from the drops as I type this. It's kind of a strange feeling, not being able to focus on text closer than two feet away. Not an altogether pleasant feeling, either. It's like crawling through a small tunnel without having room to turn around... a sense of helplessness. Fortunately only temporary, but it does give me a better appreciation for what I normally take for granted.
