Actually it’s not a hypnosis machine. It’s not even the time travel gizmo from Austin Powers. Honest to g-d, it is something they used at the doctor’s office for my eye exam and to look at my eyeballs for the possibility of wearing contacts……..again.
Last time I got fitted for contacts they didn’t have such a contraption. Oddly enough, some of my other exam was much more primitive – cardboard with letters or making a triangle out of my two hands to see if I was right or left eye dominant. (I’m left – for the record.)
My vision benefits suck, but damned if I wasn’t going to use them at least for my exam. I’ll milk every frickin’ dollar out of these guys that I can. I mean – I am paying for it, right?
My prescription has not changed at all in two years – not too bad. As I always assumed I was not so slowly going blind (must have been from all of that self-love I performed as a teen……and as an adult), it was nice to see and hear that things are no longer progressing that way.
It has also been years since I’ve worn contacts and I just kind of want to see if I can do it without irritating my eyes again. But since that last time, I’ve moved into bi-focals. Yes, I’m old – I get it! So we are trying bi-focal contacts. Sometimes they give one for near and one for far sightedness. But these are actually bi-focal lenses, so we’ll see how they go.
I don’t have them in, since my pupils are the size of dinner plates thanks to the dilation. If it were another year, one might think I was high. But I’m not.
Oh and yes – my eyes are brown.
