Now I Know How Opthalmosaurus Must've Felt

I went to the eye doctor today to get a checkup and new glasses. We found out that I'd developed a slight stigmatism, but my new lenses will correct that. More importantly, I got eyedrops which dialate the pupils for the first time. It's crazy, dude. My near-vision is ruined, and when I'm outside it's like I'm constantly looking directly into the sun. Even though it's overcast. My eyes are just being flooded with light, forcing me to squint.

Really? That was the first time you've ever had your eyes dialated? Or however you spell it. I'm amazed.

And yes I agree. It sucks.

They wanted to give me the drops for the first time a couple of years ago, and being all too easily freaked out by the idea, I had a giant panic attack and didn't get my exam that year.

The next year, we coughed up the extra twenty bucks to get the high-tech version of the test. ~_~ Lasers or something.
