Oh yes it does.
My prescription (last time I got one), for those of you who are also nearsighted and so find such things as fascinating as new moms find baby weights and poop, was a -9.
But it’s been, oh, four years or so since I had an eye exam, and my eyes keep getting worse.
For the last few weeks I thought they were getting a lot worse, worryingly so, before I finally took out my contacts (I know in the world of responsible people, “extended wear” does not mean “wear without removing for months”. But that ain’t my world, friends) and realized why my vision was so cloudy all the time. Because the lenses were yucky and cloudy and smudgy. Pretty awful.
So now I’m on my last pair (actually not yet, I’m doing one of my repentant wear-glasses-for-a-week things), so I’m going to have to go get another exam soon, and since I’m not in Florida I can’t go to my best friend’s brother, who is a great optomotrist or opthalmologist or whichever it is who does my eye exams for free because I’m his sister’s best friend. (But if any of you are ever in the West Palm Beach area, and need an eye exam, email me and I’ll tell you where to go. In a nice way, not in the way implied by the phrase “I’ll tell you where to go.” Which sounds like the next sentence should be “To HELL!! MUAHAHAHA!”)
It’s especially fun being nearsighted when you’re married to someone with the Best Vision in the World, so good his eye doctors burst into tears, who likes to smugly remind you of that fact whenever the subject comes up. “I wouldn’t know, because my vision is actually too perfect for their silly instruments to measure. Ha ha!”
So. Still fiddling with the new site, still looking for comments if you have time. Is anyone else noticing slow loading? Also, V95, you see I have changed my icon. It’s me again, a pic of me holding the Faerie (I cropped her out but you can see her ear.)
And if anyone has an ideas how I can tell the sweet lady who designed and hosted my old site, who is a really good person and a friend, that I’m switching away from her, that would be great. I know what I’ll probably say, but suggestions are always helpful.
I may post more later.
