I’m officially not blind anymore!
After spending more than three years dealing with my short sightedness, not being able to see people or read things that are more than about 5 meters away from my face, I finally decided to book an appointment to see the optician this morning.
He obviously confirmed what was already obvious, that I had ‘myopia’, aka. short sightedness.
I went into Boots Opticians this morning at 9:25 and was out by 11am with vision like I haven’t had since I was 13 years old, completely 20:20. Excellent :D
I’ve done more reading today than I have in my whole life I think, I’m just reading everything that is quite a distance away, just to test myself and put a little grin on my face. I swear people that I walk past in the street must think I’m crazy, just reading signs and smirking.
I did find some spectacles that I liked, but they were Ã‚Â£200, Gucci designer glasses so I didn’t to get them there and then because, simply, I haven’t looked anywhere else for any others, so I wasn’t exactly just going to splash out on those before I’ve had a shop around.
I decided to go with contact lenses, the monthly disposable type, though I will get a pair of specs too because, although the contact lenses are comfortable, I don’t think I could wear them all day every day.
Plus, I think I look more intelligent with glasses, so they would be a worthwhile investment for that reason alone ;)
