Brown Eyes

Take a look at the image…….you are getting sleepy…..very sleepy…..

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.
