So I hate going to the doctors. You have to wait forever, and then they give you a millisecond after all the paperwork and time spent with dumb old magazines.
There is only one doctor I don’t mind visiting, the eye doctor/optometrist.
I only go once a year, I get in fast, spend some time looking through lenses at a sign on the wall; and then I’m out and off with my life.
This time however things were a little different.
So I went in for my yearly visit as I have to buy new glasses. My old ones the bridge is messed up and scratching my nose and irritating my skin.
While I was there the doctor asked me if she could dilute my eyes.
I had no idea what that was but since she had never done it and I have to do it every so many years I agreed.
I asked if I needed to call a ride or anything, but she said I should be fine to drive. It was mostly going to affect my vision of things close up, like reading, but far away should be okay.
She then pulled out this weird creepy headpiece that looked like it was from a horror film or something.
She put the drops in my eyes and of course wore the headpiece and checked me out.
I passed, but afterwards things were weird.
It was so hard to read anything, I felt like a 40 year old woman or something. I could only look at things after they were a foot away from my body.
I had such a hard time paying my bill.
The light was also super bright in the store.
I was told that it would be blinding outside and given special lens to wear under my glasses. I walked outside and the light was crazy bright in my face. I had to shut my eyes and pull out the lenses to block out the pain.
I felt like a vampire or something.
I tried to drive, but the power of the sun was just too strong I had to call for a ride.
Having your eyes diluted is one of the weirdest things ever. Your pupil is so big and black you look possessed or something.
I had to shun the light and the day, instead becoming a creature of the night.

Now in other news, today is a very special day in our world & nation’s history.
