Eye Doc Ballyhoo

first – i go to the doc’s office only to find that my doc had moved to a building 1/2 mile west.
second – i check in at 9:32 for a 9:30 appt and didn’t see a doc until 10:22. that did give me some time to shoot these:

the doc showed up and dilated my eyeballs.
5 minutes after drops:

10 minutes after drops:

third – had to see a different doc to get fitted for contacts. this took another 15 minutes but this box of lenses was sitting there:

looks kinda medieval, no?
four – while learning how to insert and remove said contacts the helper girl used the wrong solution and pretty much thrashed my eyeballs. i had to sit in the office for a 1/2 hour while the docs flushed my eyes. i didn’t get a picture of my bright, pink eyeballs because i couldn’t see straight.
five – the receptionist couldn’t figure out my insurance so i had to sit there for 10 more minutes until she just said she’d figure it out and bill me later.

i have never so much looked forward to being at work.

i did get contacts.

i’m tired.

why does this blog always come back to me? how the hell are you?


i’ve consumed an entire pixie stik. i’m on a sugar high. that’s how i am.

I’m good, thank you. It sucks about the wrong solution though. But… yeay contacts?

It comes back to you because it’s yours… And I’m having a smashing day, thanks for asking.

last time I got my eyes dilated you could not see the iris for the pupil. I had to sleep it off, because even the classy plastic sunglasses didn’t help.
