Because I spend hours and hours and hours in front of a computer screen, it's not uncommon for me to head home from work with blurry and sore eyes, so I decided to take advantage of my health care and make an appointment with the eye doctor. While I really just thought they'd give me a pair of non prescription glasses to help with monitor glare, I quickly learned that I am falling apart.
Yes, at the age of 31, I officially no longer have 20/20 vision, but a mixed up pair of eyes; one can see far away, the other close up, which can make for tired eyes. So it's computer glasses for me!
It was actually kind of exciting, since I've always wanted glasses and now I can wear them, but don't have to all the time.
It just goes to show that regular check ups can be revealing and helpful and, if you have decent coverage, you should make an eye appointment soon – especially if it's been a while.
