This morning I went to the eye doctor for my annual exam. Turned out I need a prescription change in one eye and the cataract in that eye has had some growth but not to the extent it needs to be removed yet. Thankfully, there’s no evidence of eye damage due to the diabetes.
I thought that perhaps I’d get a bargain … just one lens replaced in my glasses. Alas, this was not to be. They no longer can put new lenses in your current frames. You must buy an entire new pair of glasses.
Since I have three pair — regular, computer, and sun — this can get expensive real quick. Given that I just bought my current glasses last year, I’m already expecting that my other eye will need a prescription change next year with the resultant purchase of three more pair of glasses.
Today I just ordered new regular and computer glasses. Depending on how they work out, I’ll go back and order new sunglasses later.
My eyes are so tired. The doctor dialated them and it has taken a long time for them to go back to normal. Guess the tiredness is from the strain of trying to focus.
I think I need a job! My little home business has been really impacted by the economy this year. The resulting loss of jobs from my clients means no income. This means paying for the new glasses will be a problem. Thank goodness for a good credit rating and a doctor who takes credit cards. So … if you know anyone who needs tape transcription or some other kind of secretarial work I can do from home, I’d appreciate your referring them to me.
