Day two of looking after myself, and I went to have my eyes tested, having not been for five years. The opticians to me is like the dentist to a lot of people, I am just freaked out by it.
I had been thinking about going anyway but just before I left for the charity shop yesterday I received a letter from them offering me a free test, so I nipped in to make an appointment, the earliest they could do was 9.30 today so I said YES!!! The appointment was actually very good despite my anxiety. I was shown the photograph of the back of my eye - I don't know about you but I thought that was fascinating, and I can tell you now I have a very nice retinal cup! My prescription just needed a little tweaking hasn't altered. I could have done without the assistant telling me how limited I was in my choice of frames due to my prescription and ... face. I was already more than aware of both.
I've chosen some new specs but haven't been able to order them as I don't have enough cash in my grocery budget account so I'll have to wait. Along with the free eye test I received half price voucher which means i can have them extra thinned rather than just thinned and still pay less than £200, I can't remember the last time that happened. I'm relieved it's done and have made a promise to myself that I will only wait the standard two years before going again. Now, what's next?
