You now have permission to call me four eyes

Posted by The Dandy Automaton , Dec 27 2012 · 127 views

Well, would you look at that. It looks like all those months of staring into laptops and smartphones have paid off as now I've been prescribed glasses. Okay, I'll clear up that I didn't do it on purpose, but I'm certainly not mourning my slightly deteriorated vision. I like glasses. I've wanted them for a while, but known that I'd rather not unnecessarily damage my eyes just to get them. But now I have a reason to. Of course, they're not essential. I can see perfectly well without them, if things do get a little blurry sometimes without them. They're more an occasional thing for when my eyes get tired, though that won't stop me from wearing them as much as I can. I even managed to get a pair of £100 designer spectacles for £10, given I'm still in full time education. Howsabout that, eh?
 
As well as a trip to the opticians I had another trip to the hospital where they took another blood sample (What do they do with those things when they're done...?) and just gave me a quick check up. Besides some severe back pains I appear to be doing pretty well. After that I tried to buy that Legends of Chima set again from a completely different Argos and had the exact same problem as yesterday. Their systems just wouldn't allow it and said it wasn't for sale. Clearly they need to get their act together. I sort of regret not buying it from Toys 'R' Us when I saw it there, though not in so far as money was concerned.
 
Oh, and I finally caught up with the Doctor Who Christmas special. Highlight the white text if you really want to read what comes next. I really hope Oswin dying in each episode becomes a thing like with Rory or Kenny from South Park.

Stare at any CRT monitors? Those kill your eyes so much faster than LCDs.

I love glasses.  Just learned a month or so ago that I'll never get to stop wearing them.  It was a relief.

It helps being 18 and still in college. I imagine next time I'll be buying as cheaply as possible as I won't be getting such lovely discounts. :P

Thanks man, though it's nothing major. It's more just a side effect of the drugs I'm taking.

Do we have t-shirts or is it just the spectacles?

Fortunately not. As far as I'm aware, most screens in my house are LCD now. Though I'm not sure about the monitors when I'm working in an office...

Lucky you. As I said, mine are only a temporary thing. Apparently it's bad to be wearing them constantly, though that won't stop me from having them on my face as much as I can manage. :P
