I got new glasses yesterday. I don’t have a really big prescription, but things were getting fuzzy whenever I’d read or write on my computer…plus, both pairs of glasses I bough at what I will refer to as “The Cheap-o Glasses place” broke within a few months of getting them. I super glued one pair so they would not fold in without cracking in half,and they held together for awhile. When the lenses started popping out of my other pair of Cheap-O glasses, I caved and set up an appointment a “More Expensive” glasses store.
After they checked my old, barely held together glasses for the prescription, the lady came back in and said, “Um…do you realize that your two pairs of glasses are different?” She went on to say that “The left and right lenses of the second pair of glasses had been put in incorrectly. My right eye had been seeing what my left was supposed to, and vice-versa.” For real. For an ENTIRE YEAR my eyes were unfocused. And I didn’t notice.
What I did notice was that I have been having a hard time both reading and writing, but seriously considered that I must have ADD or something because I could not focus on what I was trying to focus on.
Is there a lesson to be learned here? I’d like to think so!
- Don’t fall for the talking glasses commercial and go to the Cheap-o Glasses Place.
- There might be an actual reason for your focus problem. Someone smarter than you needs to help you see.
- Stay humble. And have a good sense of humor. 🙂
