Off the Track
This post has absolutely nothing to do with barbecue, live fire cooking, cooking, food or even eating. We'll return to that tomorrow, but today, it's a little lecture.
Take care of your eyes folks! They're the only ones you'll ever have.
Friday my two kids and I went to the local ophthalmologist for an exam. As you may know, my daughter is diabetic so she goes to the ophthalmologist every year. My son, told us that his vision was getting a little fuzzy and I was due for a new prescription as well and hadn't been to a real eye doctor in about 20 years, so we had a little family bonding time at the eye doctor's office.
I've never had such a thorough exam in my life. The doctor first saw us at 11:00 AM, and we didn't leave until about 3:30! Our eyes were checked for vision, dryness, spacial acumen, glaucoma and God knows whatever else. They performed tests I didn't even know existed. Results were mixed, as one condition has appeared that needs to be monitored for the next year. I'm glad we went a professional!
No disrespect for the guys at the mall, but sometimes you just gotta go to the pros. Need to know the difference between an Ophthalmologist, Optician, and Optometrist? Click here. It answered my questions.
