A few weeks ago I told you guys that I was finally doing something about my eyesight. It all stemmed from the fact that my puppy concussed herself because I couldn’t see the danger in front of her. It was certainly a shock to the system and I’m glad it happened (because she didn’t get seriously hurt and it has made me get in control of what I had been putting off).
Well, I’ve been wearing glasses ever since that day and I can’t believe how much it’s changed my life. Visiting the optometrist in Cheltenham was one of the best things I’ve ever done. If I hadn’t gotten glasses I wouldn’t have seen all the dangerous things in my home and yard! Seriously, why do I have a massive metal spike poking through my fence? It’s at the perfect level to completely pierce my innocent puppy. How long has it even been there? Has my eyesight been that bad for that long that I couldn’t even see genuine impending doom? Even if I had walked into it I would have seriously injured myself. Did someone who knew about my eyesight problems put it there? I’m very disturbed.
I was chatting with my optometrist last week when she called to ask how my eyes were adjusting to the new glasses. She’s a great woman and it was nice to have a chat with her. She mentioned at one point that my eyesight was so bad that she thinks I needed glasses as a child too. She was shocked when I told her that I had never visited a pediatric optometrist and said that not going would have played a massive role in my eyesight being so bad today. Oh well, it’s too late now to dwell on that.
I’m just looking forward to spending time with my puppy and making sure that everything is as safe as possible for her. Random dangerous metal spikes will absolutely not get the better of me or my puppy – that’s for sure.
