Eyes and Specs

The excess blinking of eyes for few days last week was tough indeed, sending me excess strain on eyes while reading, talking and looking at laptop and television, it was very difficult to notice anything by evening when lights are turned on. We thought it was because of weakness and vitamin deficiency which I believed too, but I wasn’t sure leaving it off and eyes left wet often while reading and staring at television want me to check with doctor.
The excess blinking last for nearly 4 days before coming down to least fraction, I still wanted to go to an ophthalmologist and on Monday we checked one of an eye specialist in our neighborhood waiting for nearly an hour. This is the first time I checked with an ophthalmologist in my life and she was very kind and since well know to my grandmother who check with her regularly it was easy to convey with her familiarly and she tested my eyes on the biomicroscope and asked to read the eyes chart.

I felt myself funny while reading eye chat and I was right on the letters even without used the test glasses, but she recommended spectacles for me for reading and viewing monitor  after testing 0.75 power on Distance Vision (DV). I never thought I would have to wear spectacles and don’t know how well it gonna change my look but I understand it’s need and glad I don’t need to wear it always except reading and watching monitor, the glasses has a anti-reflective coating to protect eyes from computer radiation.

The doctor didn’t get fees for me and she’s so humble checking everyone and inquiring at general. I wasn’t interested on selecting specks as I have no idea before getting one, but went for as usual simple and neatly framed and light coated in color. I think she recommends specs for everyone who visits her as I saw two third leaves ordering specs at the optical shop permanently placed within the clinic. I was advised to check yearly as I have diabetic, eyes are the first to get affected.

Glasses will probably help.

I had to get glasses when I turned 36 - you get used to them! And it was lovely to see everything in focus again.

I'm glad you had your eyes checked by the doctor. I had to get glasses my last year of high school and have worn them ever since. At times I forget that I'm even wearing them.
