Of all the annual medical examinations I have each year the one I dread the most is my annual eye exam. I've been wearing glasses since I was 6 years old, contacts since I was 17. I hated going to the eye doctor then and I still do.
One of the reasons I hate going to the eye doctor is that I have terrible, terrible eyesight. I can literally only see eight inches in front of me clearly without glasses or contacts and as one gets older, one's vision almost always gets worse. Well, this afternoon I have the dreaded eye appointment. I'm always worried they'll tell me my vision has gotten worse. I don't need bifocals yet, but my two older sisters, one in her mid forties and the other in her early fifties wear them and their eyesight is much better than mine.
Whenever I bemoan having to wear my "ugly" glasses, I always try to
tell myself to be grateful for the eyesight I do have, but I am human,
and have small minded thoughts and still complain about it (like now.)
