Overslept this morning and woke up with a migraine. This, after a series of very weird and vivid dreams. Not been a good day. Still headachy tonight, but pulled together a decent dinner for the two of us. It’s not even 7:30 and I’m already thinking about going to bed.
I get fatigued looking at computer screens all day; things get pretty blurry by evening. I’m wearing the same glasses that I bought years ago. I don’t remember exactly when I got these, but it’s been at the least six years. I went to a new eye doctor about this time last year and finally got an updated look with new frames and prescription, which didn’t work out. I can see distance and close up reading with no problem, but can’t read anything on the computer screen. The optometrist tested my vision again and ordered new lenses with the same result. He suggested a get a second pair of glasses just for using the computer. I called BS on that, since my old glasses work for all distances. They’re just outdated and really scratched up. It’s time.
So, changing optometrists again and have an appointment for next week. I’ve been putting this off because it all feels a bit sketchy since only dentists get closer to your face than optometrists do. Assuming a mask will be mandatory. No need to even ask.
