Well, the gray hair was a sign of things to come. My eyes were perfectly fine for years and years. Lots o’ years.
Then all of a sudden, the signs in the library were fuzzy. And so were street signs. And people’s faces (when they were a decent distance away). It was like going from the best kind of HD to a 1950’s TV. Yep. I have 1950’s TV eyes.
I decided to go to the eye doctor when it didn’t get better after a couple of months. And what did I learn? Well, I have 20/20 vision. Still.
It seems that I used to have 20/15 vision, and now, this vision that I thought was so terrible turns out to be 20/20. I thought I was half blind or something, which gives me a real sympathy for anyone with actual vision issues. (There is a slight astigmatism as well… does that make it more legit?)
I felt kind of stupid about the whole appointment when they told me my vision is 20/20. I certainly thought that would get me out of the office without any glasses. But the doctor disagreed, and I’m glad he did. I got my glasses today, and things are so nice and crisp again. It’s back to HD for me. Yay! There’s even glitter on the inside of my glasses (which I didn’t see when I was picking them, what with the super dilated eyes and whatnot). So I get HD vision and the perfect combo of tortoiseshell and glitter? It’s a win.
