I have really bad nearsightedness. The eye doctor I went to yesterday kept mentioning how bad my eyesight was every few minutes. I kinda laugh at it, I thought it was funny that he thought my eyesight was that bad.
At least he mentioned that I have an astigmatism in my right eye, no one has told me that before, you'd think someone would have mentioned it in my 37 years of life or my 30 years of glasses?
My right eye is so nearsighted that it's in the double digits...
At least I have beautiful eyes and they don't have any other issues. The floater has been there for years, so it's nothing to worry about. I may end up with surgery on it one day because my mother recently had some corneal issues and now since they blew it back up, she'll have to have cataract surgery on both of them too.
My husband wears glasses too, so our children had no hope. Fortunately since we wear glasses proudly, they have no fear about the new specs they get to wear when they come in this week. At least my daughter won't have to squint anymore, it was getting bad. I'm not surprised that her eyes are starting to fail already, I was her age when I got my first pair.
The kids picked out cute ones, they've come far from the only choice is the big brown turtle colored type to so many colors and shapes to pick from. We still see those ugly turtle glasses still though... I'd never let my kids wear those ever! My daughter found some purple ones that work well with her face (she seems to always be in pink or purple clothes anyhow) and my son went with some copper ones that look nice with his skin tone.
I'm glad we do get them checked annually. Eyes are another part of our body we need to take care of and so many problems can come in your eyes if you don't get them checked, even if you have perfect vision.
Today's Holidays: Build a Scarecrow Day, Tell the Truth Day (shouldn't that be everyday?), Father-Daughter Take a Walk Day, Global Forgiveness Day (just think how much nicer the world would be if we focused on the positive things the other people do?), National Strawberry Sundae Day, Chocolate Day and National Macaroni Day.
