I specifically remember my very first visit to an optometrist when I was only 7-years old. I picked out a pair of glasses that were terribly thick and RED. What was I thinking? I am so happy that I now realize glasses are a fashion statement and choosing the most unattractive pair of lenses will hurt you on a daily basis!
Those glasses were initially meant for the chalkboard and distance reading purposes in school. However, bad eyesight does run in our family. I am now wearing contacts constantly and can barely read a piece of paper set 2" inches away from my eyes.
Having such poor eyesight means regular visits to my optometrist are very important. Eye care is something I take very seriously and I hope all of my readers pay as much attention to their vision as I do!
I recently discovered that I have an astigmatism in my right eye. I knew something was going on, but I didn’t have enough knowledge or information to diagnose myself. Luckily, my astigmatism is nothing serious, but I do require special contacts that are special for astigmatic vision in my right eye.
I have always known that I have bad eye vision, but I am now getting older and need to begin educating myself on proper eye health, questions to ask at my next eye vision appointment, and ensure that I am receiving the best lenses available to regain sharp vision.
