I Got New Glasses Tonight
Anybody who wears Glasses has gone through what I am about to describe but it makes it no less "disheartening" About the time I was 27 or so I knew my eyes were failing and soon I would be in need of glasses. The final straw came shortly after my 28th birthday when I could no longer make out the board at Sizzlers. So in 2002 I got glasses. Then I got a new pair and my eyes had gotten MUCH worse. Then I got a new pair again and again my eyes had gotten worse. At this point with out my glasses I can read an little else. I mean if it's more than a few feet away it's a blur. I thought my eyes had stabilized and my new glasses this time wouldn't be much different than the last pair...Then I went in for the test. The Dr. Says this is your old prescription and I looked and he said this is your new one... I looked and said to myself Oh fuck! At what point will I be officially blind? it's soon I imagine.
BTW the Contessa who is the opposite of me and needs Glasses to read and little else says..."your glasses are getting thicker aren't they?" That made me feel better.
