I had an optical emergency last week...
I am blind as a bat and for some reason I put my glasses on the bed and promptly sat on them while I was getting dressed. and yep they broke. I had a very old pair in my sock drawer (my mom always told me to save my old glasses just in case) so I was using the m in the meantime.
I went to the optical place in the local mall and they tested my eyes and yesterday on the spot they made me a temoporary pair of glasses.
It seems in my optical emergency and having to wear an eighteen year old pair of glasses a mistake was noticed. My right eye has been conistently misdiagnosed and thier computer thingy caught it. How strange is that? So now I have to see a specialist just to make sure there is nothing funky going on.
The optician was great too.. once he found out what I do for a living he threw in a second set of frames for free so I have work glasses and home glasses. He also did all of the upgrades on the lenses and did not charge me for them. Much better than Hakim and I have found a new source for our family's vision needs.
