NOT FOR ALL THE TEA IN CHINA
I saw our eye doctor on Friday. I am doing a lot more driving these days and a slight vision problem was causing concern. It seems I needed a minor prescription change and did not want to spring for new frames at this time. The vision center said I did not have to leave my glasses but they hoped I would leave them since it would be easier to fit the new lenses with the frames there . I knew reading glasses would serve until I got my glasses back, so I left them. My next stop was Walmart and I needed to be able to read some prices, etc. but did not want to purchase reading glasses since we have tons of pairs at home. Digging through the glove box of the van I found this old pair of prescription sunglasses. They are at least 15 years old. They actually worked for my main concerns and off I went to complete my shopping with these antique glasses. I only needed a white cane or a dog to complete my ensemble.
My other eye problem was caused from Tonto. (Remember my bi-pap machine -- I am the masked stranger and the machine is my faithful companion?) Anyway it is drying my eyes out and so the doctor suggested I start using Refresh PM lubricant at night. Now as I prepare for bed I have to gargle with Biotene to prevent dry mouth, and put Ayr in my nose and Refresh PM in my eyes before I don the mask. But does this make me want to give up my sleep machine? No way! It has changed, as well as saved, my life.
