Blind as a bat
I’m just back from an eye test in Specsavers where I was told that I need new glasses. My eyesight has deteriorated slightly in my left eye and my current glasses are not a great look for me anyway – optician’s words not mine! I’m making it sound worse than it was – she was joking with me…I think.
She warned me that 12 hours a day spent staring at computer screens and iPad screens and iPhone screens is not good for my eyes. Who’d have thought, eh? 🙂
Good thing I didn’t tell her about all the blog posts I’ve written on my phone in the dark in the middle of the night!! I’m sure she would have loved that!
I don’t know what it is about eye tests. I realise that the purpose of the test is to assess my eyesight – but somehow I manage to forget that mid-way through the test.
“Which looks sharper – the green or the red?”
“Um…the green…no no…the red…?”
I realise what I’m doing of course, but I can’t help myself. I want to pass! I want to read all the letters on that chart and get an A+ and a gold star! (Yes, I was that annoying child waving my hand frantically in the air and yelling “Teacher, Teacher!!” when a question was asked in school! 🙂 )
Instead I’ll have to settle for a new prescription! Oh well…
