Feelin' like a vampire

I'm a real baby when it comes to my eyes. There's just no touching my eyes.... I can't even bear to put eye drops in those suckers. Contacts lenses? Never going to happen!

Well, today I had to visit an Ophthalmologist and get the Glaucoma exam done. You know - the freezing of the pupil so they can put a lens against your eye. Then they use those drops to dilate your pupils so the good doctor can look inside your eyes properly. I needed a double dose of that stuff before it worked, so needless to say, I'm impressed.

Then I had to run a few errands, so I'm running around feeling like some kind of vampire because of my sensitivity to the light. The world starts to look like some kind of blurry fantasy land. And of course while your pupils are dilated, you can't read anything up close.

I have this unjustified fear of being somewhere where I won't be able to see due to either a loss of glasses or no contact lenses. I have started the process of checking into lasik. we'll see, get it we'll see?
