And now that I can finally see like I could thirty years ago with my new glasses, all I can say is daaaaaaamn.
Y’all some ugly motherfuckers!
Just kidding, you know you are all beautiful to me.
It will be nice to be able to see clearly when we meet again if we haven’t already.
The eyeglass place literally called me as I was waiting for someone to let me in the front door to that place I work at occasionally to hand them the bill for the eye exam and the glasses to tell me they were ready.
The day I went in to get my eyes checked and order them was the last day I worked and the last day my insurance was in effect. Even though I got an email confirming that the insurance company had been informed I was eligible the eye glass place checked and told me it still didn’t show as being in effect so I wound up paying almost $400 out of my ass pocket to have the tests done and pay for the frames and lenses.
$90 for the test, $97 for Titanium frames because I am hard on equipment and $90 apiece for the lenses.
I’m sure the insurance isn’t going to pay for all of it but some is better than none the way I see it.
I was to the point I didn’t care what it cost me because I couldn’t see shit anymore. Even the eye doctor lady told me that I was very borderline driving illegally because the Dollar Store glasses just weren’t cutting it because she checked them along with my eyes.
I was buying the maximum strength available which is a 3.00 magnification and it turns out I need a 4.25.
Just for fun both eyes are fucked up just a little different so I had to get a separate prescription lens for each eye. No Macular Degeneration and just a hint of cataracts which is normal for old fucking geezers my age I hear.
After all the tests she remarked that I must have had really good eyesight when I was younger because with these new lenses I will have 20/15 vision.
I told her I missed that so much that there weren’t words for it.
Of course I had to get Bi Focals but this time I went with those Progressive ones without that damn line across the bottom.
Holy shit what a difference!
They are taking a bit of getting used to because you literally have to move your head to see right through them. If you try to look down at the floor everything goes blurry because that’s where the Reading magnification is. She told me that I need to point with my nose at what I am wanting to see.
Since it’s been broken nine friggin’ times it’s a bit crooked but I’m figuring it out.
It is so nice to be able to look across underneath the television across the room and finally be able to read the damn digital clock under it and actually be able to see what time it is.
That has been bugging the shit out of me for a couple of years now.
No way man.
Yeah, that’s the ticket.
See ya around.
