The eye doctor tells me that I need glasses. This is notable for two reasons.
1. I had LASIK done in 2001. It was supposed to last ten years without needing any touch-ups. Apparently my eye had other plans. I say “eye” in the singular because…
2. It’s just my right eye. It’s not very bad–about 20/40. But it’s enough that glasses will help me read better, and cure these awful tension headaches on the right side of my face.
I’m still glad I did LASIK. My prescription was about 20/500 before I had the surgery. I couldn’t even read my alarm clock in the morning. But to need such a mild prescription–and only in one eye. Grrr.
I’m considering monocles and eyepatches right now.
