I had an eye exam yesterday at a Costco optometrist. Super nice doctor, I really liked him. Definitely needed a new glasses prescription. Middle and far distance much sharper and reading will be so much better. He flipped the lenses to what my current prescription is and then back over to what my new one will be. I could read teeny tiny print, clear as a bell. LOL.
Picking out new glasses was not very fun. DH wouldn't help give any input and I could really barely see a thing between my almost blind vision without glasses on and having my eyes dilated. While they were dilating I went out and tried on glasses. Thought I found some I liked, but when I went back to order them after my exam was finished the lady talked me out of them. Said they were much wider than my current glasses and I wouldn't end up liking them. I've always had full rimmed glasses and these were just the top. She also commented that I should be aware they will look thicker without the rim (I have a pretty thick lens on right eye). I had sat down and she brought over some other lenses to try. I hadnt' really seen any full rimmed frames similar to what I have, but I didn't realize there was another display of frames in a front counter down low. She brought over a couple of full framed glasses but they were like blue or black and didn't look good. Anyhow, I was feeling kind of rushed (just because DH was there and waiting) and also feeling totally out of sorts because I couldn't really see and the lights were bright, etc. I have a feeling I'm not going to end up liking these glasses much. I guess we'll know in a week. Afterwards DH said he liked that very first pair the best too (the one's she talked me out of). GrRR!
Exam and glasses (progressive lenses) came to $305, but I will get reimbursed $150 from vision insurance. Not the best vision insurance, but better than nothing, I guess.
So, then I had those ridiculous "sun glasses" on inside my glasses to go outside. We still had shopping to do to get some more shrubs and stop and get a prescription. I don't know how, but I completely forgot my clip on sunglasses are in the glove box. That's where they always are! I felt like half my brain was missing yesterday. Out of sorts for some reason. Then I forgot to pick up my mom a gift card for her birthday, while I was getting the prescription. Oh well, Mother's Day just around the corner, I'll double up :)
