I totally neglected to ever write about it, but last month or the month before, I had an appointment with my optometrist. I have a pretty light prescription for farsightedness, and hardly ever even wear glasses, and normally only at night or to the opera or to a fancy picture-show.
So anyway, my whole eye appointment went well, and it turns out my vision in my left eyeball has improved! That was always my bad eye, stupid left eye, and now it’s almost normal and as good as my right eye.
I got an updated prescription, but since my vision hadn’t really changed and the optometrist didn’t have any frames I liked, I didn’t buy new glasses at that time. I’m still looking for frames I like, though, and in particular, frames that can easily be inserted onto my head while I’m wearing a motorcycle helmet.
It’s harder than you’d think to find glasses that are easy to wear under a motorcycle helmet.
So anyway, fast foward to The Present Day. Then rewind to Yesterday. My driver’s license is expiring, and I had a hot appointment with the exotic foreign chick at the DMV. She was all chatting me up, asking me all sorts of questions, and just when I was about to say, “Enough about me, let’s talk about you,” she had me start reading letters off the board hanging from the ceiling behind her.
And I read them all, no problem! Even with one eye covered and one hand behind my back! And then again with the other hand behind my back and my other eye covered!!!
I was going to offer to do it with both eyes covered and both hands behind my back, but didn’t want to move too fast.
So instead, she took my picture, and promised to send me something in the mail in a few weeks.
I can’t wait! And I’m stoked that once again, I get a driver’s license that does not say “needs prescription lenses.”
