This is unusual as I generally get a pair of different glasses every year but this year, my favourite shop did not have any "weird" ones, so I havent got any.
Which reminds me, I must go in a look at them!
Then again, am getting my hearing tested so many need the money for something else - hahaha
About 6 weeks ago. I have my eyes checked every six months, because I have glaucoma and it is very important to check the pressures 6 monthly. I see an ophthalmologist who is also a practicing eye surgeon, and a professor. I haven't lost any sight as yet, and hopefully I won't as I get older. Regular checks will hopefully prevent that. She is happy with my eyes. Lots of undiagnosed glaucoma patients walking around out there who are at risk of losing THEIR sight. I would hate to lose my eyesight. Most eyesight loss is preventable if you just have yearly checks.
me too Lluxi - but I go every 3 months as my pressure is too high and also have some damage already - also see a professor! there are many professors - seems to be that they all end up here as professors after a few years!
Hmmmmm. Well, I was on the way to it and they put me on the drops and my eye pressure has stabilised. When I go to the new Opthalmologist I will ask her the direct question - "Do I actually have glaucoma?"
I went to the optometrist about six weeks ago and had my eyes checked. I had Shingles recently and the lesions were over one eye. When I was still in pain after a month I thought I should at least see an optometrist.
My eyesight has not deteriorated for the last 10ish years so I am able to collect some spectacles for different moods so wearing an older lighter frame was not the cause.
I have dry eyes which is no fun and might be causing the headaches and pain. Back to GP next.
Around March this year for my annual disability permit checkup. I've not been happy with thd glasses as I had to see someone in my local area as my usual optometrist was on leave. I was talked into bifocals which I didn't want as I'd taken my reading glasses and was happy with the bifocals I had. I reallh don't know how I was bamboozled and I can't read properly with the reading section. I've been back three times complaining the distance I have to hold my book is unrealistic but keep getting told I need to read closer to my face. Ridiculous! I've never had this problem with my usual optometrist and I comfortably hold my book where I want to so don't recommend the local business to anyone.
Hi Miro. I just don't use those glasses. I'm using my old ones and will wait for my letter to arrive for the check up and go to my usual optometrist. It's not worthwhile having new ones now as I'll need to go through the examination again when the letter arrives.
I had my eyes tested six months ago. There's been some improvement since I underwent a reconstructive surgery for ptosis last year. My left eye's field of vision has expanded to 30 percent more but I needed to get a new pair of glasses to address any changes to my eyesight.
