Last week I had my long over due eye appointment. Why do I put it off? I convince myself every year that this will be the year the good ole Doc will tells me it is time for eyeglasses. When I was a kid I had a lazy eye. Yep, that is what they called it. The solution was apparently humiliation. I was “prescribed” a patch. Oh, and not a nice little stick on flesh colored patch like the use now. A Freakin Pirate Patch with a strap and everything. I hated that damn thing. So. I don’t have a problem with glasses, just some deep seeded, unfounded, unresolved childhood issues all tangled up with a regular eye routine. Puh. It’s nothin. That and I may have a problem with admitting I might indeed be getting older. Sigh.
As I sat in the optometrists office, I found myself checking out the racks of prescription glasses. I was pretty sure this would be the year the Doc would tell me my peepers needed some help. Can I tell you how relieved I was to see all the fashionable styles that are available now?
Made it through my eye appointment with minimal squinting, and was told I do not need a prescription for glasses? This time. *Squee** Then the good Doctor added, as my eyes age, I will need them. Sooner then later. Thanks Mr. Suzy Sunshine. That almost killed my buzz.
As soon as the appointment was over I booked it out of the office before that Optometrist could tell me there had been some kind of mix-up! That he had confused me with a younger, stronger, better seeing woman who had never worn a patch. Then I did what any mature women does. Called my Hubby and sang in his ear “You were wrong, He says I’m fine, I don’t need prescription eyeglasses”. Told you it was mature.
