Near Death Experience...

Ok so maybe I didn't almost die, but I felt like I was going to, get this at the Eye Doctors office!!

So Tony and I go in to get our yearly eye check up on Saturday and I of course can't do the puff test. I just can't do it, my eyes are too sensitive and it would take forever. So I just told her no. She said there was an alternative test so I would do that.

Well I don't wear glasses, I was able to see pretty much the bottom line of every test she gave me. Apparently my prescription is so tiny, I would only benefit from wearing my glasses during night driving. Okay now for the substitute for the puff test... They put yellow drops in your eyes, it makes them sticky then they put this blue dot on the front of your eye. OKay good in theory. Apparently I'm allergic or something to the drops because after she put them in my eye I could barely open it, even while holding the lids open. So I force myself to keep my right eye open and she does the blue dot thing, the entire time I am thinking I'm going to vomit. After she finishes with the dot, I tell her I'm going to throw up and pass out. She decided not to even do the left eye it was so bad.

I had to lay on the floor of the exam room for like 15 minutes while her/Tony were fanning me with the door. Apparently I was as white as a ghost. It sucked! So yeah I don't like the eye doctor anymore.

omg, that sounds horrible. But the thought of you sprawled out on the floor of the exam room is kind of funny. And I'm sure you can laugh now that it's over!
