In Other News
Yesterday I had an eye appointment. It had only been a year and a half since I had my eyes examined, but I have been seeing black spots from my left eye since Christmas Day. The doctor told me they were floaters and they would eventually go away or get better....it is just another sign of aging. My glaucoma test was high so he wanted to dilate my eyes, but didn't want to do so yesterday since I was by myself. He asked me to bring someone with me when I pick up my new glasses in two weeks and he would take a closer look with dilation. The good news was my eyes had not changed much since my last exam. Actually, they haven't changed very much for many years.
The last pair of glasses I bought was at one of these one hour places you see in every mall. When I bought them I was still wearing my contacts every day and only needed them in the evenings after removing my contacts. Since retiring, I rarely put my contacts in so I wanted to get a nicer pair of frames.
Don't you just hate trying to pick out a pair of frames? I do! The Optician picked out four pair of frames for me to try. He explained why I needed this particular style. He was right on the money! When faced with hundreds of frames, it was so good to select from only four. While talking to him I learned he trained under the "best", in my opinion, Optician in the area. It was the man who fitted me for glasses as a child and young adult. Learning this is probably why I feel so comfortable with the frames I selected.
I haven't been to the Y for a couple of days....same on me, so today I will go and spend a little extra time exercising. Yesterday the temperature reached 75 degrees and I had to keep reminding myself it was January. A cold front moved in last night, it's now in the 50's and we may get snow by the end of the week. It's no wonder why we get sick.
