And now, Glasses

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:

  1. Have a comprehensive dilated eye exam.
  2. Know your family’s eye health history.
  3. Eat right to protect your sight.
  4. Maintain a healthy weight.
  5. Wear protective eyewear.
  6. Quit smoking or never start.
  7. Be cool and wear your shades.
  8. Give your eyes a rest.
  9. Clean your hands and your contact lenses properly.
  10. Practice workplace eye safety.
