I went to the eye doctor yesterday. I’m a little overdue. I wear daily disposable contacts, and I’m running out. I’ve been wearing them three or four days before switching to new ones.
My insurance includes eye exams, but only at my doctor’s office. Their next available appointments were months away, and only seem to be scheduled for 10am. That’s a no.
I went to the place I went to the last two years. In both of those instances, it was the end of the year and I was trying to use up my HSA money. This time I was at the beginning of the year, so I was more frugal. Well, not really. The exam was expensive. But I didn’t buy contacts from them. I’m sure I can find them for cheaper. Somewhere. I should look on the internet or something…
They had me look at the letters with no contacts and asked if I could see them. I was laughing, because the mirror itself was just a blur. They did finally put a gigantic single letter on the projection screen that I could see. It was a “U”.
They asked me my current prescription and I couldn’t remember. I was worried, because I didn’t want my new prescription to be totally different. They couldn’t just look it up, because this was a new doctor, and the old doctor took all the records with him. Fortunately, I found the picture that went on THIS post. It has the numbers on it! Yay! I wear -3.50 in my right eye, and -2.25 in my left.
