Is this what heaven is like?
Although I've worn eyeglasses for many years now, it wasn't until today that I had my eyes dilated for the first time. My guess is the doctors were perturbed with having to wrestle my eyelids apart simply to place numbing drops in my eyes and didn't feel like repeating the process with dilating solution. Anyway after a few remarks from the doctor about a bump on my eye caused by the sun (wear your sunglasses, people!) and something about enlarged corneas, I was dismissed and sent stumbling in the harsh daylight to my car. I put on my sunglasses and pretty much drove back to work strictly by memory. I'd have been lost in a different city. At any rate, I thought that once I was indoors I'd be ok, but the glow of the fluorescent lights was so white hot I was getting a halo effect and couldn't stand it. So now I am sitting at my computer, wearing sunglasses. I am so cool.
