I haven't blogged about it, but my eyes have been driving me nuts for a while and it's been really frustrating trying to sew or read. I do monovision contacts, but couldn't see well enough up close. I've resorted to wearing readers, etc., which really defeats the purpose of monovision.
So I went to see my new optometrist on Friday; he prescribed different contacts and gave me a sample Rx for some eyedrops that help with allergies. Being the cheapskate that I am sometimes, I proceeded to wear my old contacts all weekend, even though the near vision is not right on them (I know, I know...) . Anyway, I was so surprised at the new Rx that I even called his office to confirm that I had the correct lenses.
I can see better with the new Rx, good vision is restored, and I can avoid the laser for the time being! I'll call and place my order tomorrow for contacts and drops, then see how I do during the next round of hayfever in the spring before making any further decisions.
