#82 - Have my eyes examined.

Well, I finally got around to having my eyes checked! I knew they were much worse than the last time I had them checked which was probably close to 3 years ago. The doctor actually seemed flabbergasted at how much my vision had changed. Okay, I get it already, I should have had them checked a year ago! I took a couple of pictures because I like putting pictures up to match my posts, but I can't post them, for a few reasons.

1) They are on my phone and I haven't figured out yet how to get them from my phone to the computer. It was a spontaneous picture taking event.
2) I don't have hookups on this computer to do it anyway.
3) My eyes are still dilated and I don't know that I could figure it out, as blind as I am right now.

To give you the general idea so you don't feel like you're missing out on anything, the first picture was a picture of my dilated eyeball. Exciting, I know. So I've drawn a rough sketch of what I look like when my eyes are dilated:

I know, not very pleasant, is it!? And after the doctor's appointment: I am so rockin' these old person glasses. I HATE the glasses they give you when your eyes are dilated! I mean, I get it, you need like 1000 pairs for every customer, so they have to be cheap, but really? Well, at least I got it done and now I don't have to go back for a while.

Great drawings!!! I saw the likeness the moment I open your blog. Now about the glasses, they look just like mine. Does that mean I am old?!?!?

Jenn: Wally World! That's where I've always gone. The dr. is okay and it's cheap, especially if you don't have to get glasses or contacts. We don't even have a vision plan with our insurance and I have to get that kind of stuff and it was still only like $100.

Gail: you are NOT old. These are not even plastic, they are like a millimeter thick (so extremely flimsy!) and gigantic. Without seeing yours, I can say with confidence that these are nothing like yours.
