I took my first official vision test of my adult life a few days ago.
I know, I know–You are wondering why on earth would I wait so long to take a proper vision test? I honestly don’t have an answer for that. I’ll tell you though, I’m very happy I did.
Mother’s Day is just around the corner and we are coming off of Women’s National Eye Care Month in April. During this season, Visionworks is challenging women everywhere to spring into action and care for their eyes.
I have been getting serious about my self care lately, I don’t know if it is the warmer weather, or simply just a new outlook on life–I’ve been more aware of caring for this one body that I have.Not going to lie, I was a little nervous about my first real official eye exam. I knew how easy it was because my boys went through one a few months ago, but now it was my turn. Would I need glasses? After all my mom started wearing glasses right around this time in her life. It was time to find out! I took the whole family with me on the weekend because we were out and about on a Saturday afternoon. One thing I love about this place is that there is a super calming vibe. I filled out the paperwork easily and quickly and waited to get seen.
First Part Of Exam
The first part of the exam required me to look into a telescope kind of thing and stare at a picture. After that was complete they blew a little whiff of air in each eye. My husband laughed at this because I jumped a little, not because it hurt, but really because I’m a bit of a scaredy cat. 🙂
Second Part of Exam
The doctor was so nice and happened to be the same gentle doc that treated my boys a few months back. I put a spoon like device over each eye and read the letters, the same way I did in grade school. The doc determined that I have almost perfect vision with a little far sightedness, but nothing to be concerned about. We both mutually decided that I would get some sunglasses because of the strain the sun puts on my eyes
(also to hide from creeps on the train).
Shopping for Sunglasses!
Visionworks has a HUGE selection of really cute prescription sunglasses to choose from! I picked up 4 or five different pairs of cat-eye glasses (because those are the ones that look the best on my face).
I ended up with an adorable pair of BeBe sunglasses which should be ready for my trip to Mom 2.0 in just a week!
I am really happy I took the exam and I have to make sure I take it yearly because I want to make sure I see everything (and everyone) as clear as possible.
