No wonder I can't see a damn thing!

I just got back from the optometrist's office where I learned that I have 20/50 vision in my left eye and 20/40 in my right!! No wonder I can read anything at a distance! I also have an astigmatism, knew that already. They didn't have contacts like I need, they have to order them. I am going to see one of my girl friend's for a bit tonight and then coming back home. I'm sure I'll have something else to say before the night's over, either here or in your blogs Mac

I went to the optometrists office 2 years ago with my had been years since I went..the doctor was very freaked out and sent me to the specialist..turns out I have an incurable eye disease and will require a cornea transplant..its not serious but its so important to get your eyes checked regularly

Sorry saddletramp. I hate wearing glasses but I can't see and it was getting worse, I had to do something, otherwise I would have never gone. Glad you did the responsible thing

Probably won't get better, if your eyes are like mine, it only gets worse with the passage of time.

I first learned about eye care from my future ex. Her vision requires a correction of 7 to 8 diopters. I don't think there's much beyond 8. Anyway, without contacts, she couldn't something clearly unless it was about 2 inches if front of her nose. She like to switch back and forth between contacts and glasses. So she was excited with the lens improvents that reduced the thick down from the coke bottle with.

My experience was at the other end of the scale. I could read roadway signs as soon as I wanted to. I kept haveing to get closer until the words were clear. Since I used to measure my vision by the land shapes on the Moon, I was just concerned with could it be improved. Turns out I got a lot of benefit by getting an exam. I got glasses with proper strengh per eye. One was a 0.5 dio and the other was at 0.75 dio. This was the minimum strength that the would recommend glasses for treatment. I decided to get the glasses made as sunglasses. All of the bells and whistles ran the bill up on this visit. But I've had these glasses over 6 years now. I should be getting close to breaking even on all of the less expensive pair that I've lost over the years. So I think that I got a good benefit by investing and maintaining this pair over the years. Oh, and i do get to see better too.
