It's cranberry harvest time in Southeastern Massachusetts and that means I'm seeing this as I…
I went to a new eye doctor yesterday. You may recall that I got progressive lenses around this time last year. And, while I’ve gotten used to them, I’ve never felt the prescription was exactly right. AND, they were useless for seeing my monitors at work. So, a few months ago I reached out to the eye services that are located in the same building as my doctor and got an appointment, although in a different location.
The doctor was great. She was young and very friendly and we chatted about libraries and I have every confidence that she gave me a good and thorough exam. My prescription is somewhat different than what I got last year and my right eye does indeed have 20/20 vision now without glasses. Turns out, that’s because I have (in the doctor’s words) “baby cataracts” in that eye and at this point they are helping my vision so we “aren’t concerned.”
I left with my new prescription for progressives, a prescription for computer glasses, the knowledge that my eyes are healthy, and an appointment for next year. I also left with dilated eyes which made the ride home . . . and the plant shopping I may or may not have done . . . interesting.
I’ll be going shopping for new glasses very soon, stay tuned for that!
