I finally heard something I’ve been dreading for the past years — eye glasses.
At 33, I am really proud of my eyesight. I am confident that I’ve still got 20-20 vision despite my constant exposure with laptops and gadgets given my line of work. I never dreamed of wearing eyeglasses because they won’t look good on me. And it’s too complicated. High-maintenance. Hahaha.
But since December my left eye has been twitching, that even as I close my eyes to sleep at night, the spasm continues. I’m actually having them now……
And just last week, I observed that my eyes would start to hurt in the afternoon, making me feel nauseous, and on 3 occasions, actually vomit.
So I finally went to an ophthalmologist last Monday who confirmed my worry — I needed to wear eyeglasses. Though my vision is still okay, my prolonged exposure to a computer screen at work is causing me eye strain. As per my doctor, 4 hours should be the daily max exposure, but it couldn’t be helped because of my work, so the best I could do is give my eyes some rest from time to time, and some protection.
So for the next 2 weeks, I’ll be taking meds to keep my eyes hydrated and to relax my nerves. But I may have to use anti-fatigue glasses for as long as I am working. Boo-hoo.
The funny thing is, out of all the styles on the optical shop I went to, only 2 glasses complemented face. Or my nose. As expected. And I got the cheaper one of course. As expected again.
Geeky! Now I really look like I work for an IT company! Tee-hee-hee.
Thank God hubby is supportive as always!
So to the kids and all of you out there, take good care of your eyes.
Some tips I googled:
- Have a comprehensive dilated eye exam.
- Know your family’s eye health history.
- Eat right to protect your sight.
- Maintain a healthy weight.
- Wear protective eyewear.
- Quit smoking or never start.
- Be cool and wear your shades.
- Give your eyes a rest.
- Clean your hands and your contact lenses properly.
- Practice workplace eye safety.
P.S. Funny how today’s daily prompt is about hearing yet here I am posting about glasses and eyes. Well, let it be! Hahaha. ^^v
