New Glasses

So I started seeing a weird spot in my field of vision in my left eye today. I'd never had it before and had no other symptoms of anything, but Darling Hubby was still concerned. We went to our eye place and they got in me pretty quickly. They checked me out from top to bottom (of my eyes, that is) and didn't find anything out of the ordinary. They even fully dilated my eyes (which sucks in bright sunlight!) to get a better look, but they found nothing. In fact, they said that my eyes have actually improved!!! I no longer have my astigmatism so they've lowered my prescription. Woot! I'm still seeing the weird spot in my vision occasionally this afternoon, but I'm beginning to think it's just because I'm super tired. Hopefully, it will just go away. Oh, the eye dr did have a theory. It could be an ocular migraine. Some people get weird vision followed by headaches, some people just get the headaches and some just get the vision thing. I have been getting headaches lately, but nothing an Excedrin won't fix. At any rate, I did need new glasses. I'm terrible about keeping up on my getting my eyes checked (it's been over 3 years since I got new glasses), mainly because we don't have an insurance that will cover it and for just me getting a compete eye exam, new everyday frames and lenses and new lenses in my old sunglass frames it cost me nearly $800.00. Darling Hubby was a wee bit annoyed, but not at me. He should get his done too, but since we just shelled out that amount on me, he'll probably wait.

So, in about 1-2 weeks, my new glasses should be ready. They only had one of my everyday lenses in stock so they had to order the other one. So, as soon as they are ready, I'll have a new picture to share with everyone. According to everyone, the new frames are an "odd shape," but they look nice on me. At least I think they do...My eyes were dilated and I was blind as a bat for the most part while choosing frames. Hopefully, they will look good later.
