Crazy Eyes

In an ongoing effort to use up our FSA funds before the end of the year, I went to the optometrist today; the first time in a decade. Though I knew I needed to go for a check up, there seemed to be little reason. It seems less meaningful than a dental visit, but it really shouldn't be. So today I went and got the full battery of tests done. On top of it all, they took a picture of my eyes (with the blood vessels and all) so we have a baseline for how my eyes look physically now, when they are healthy. If there's a problem in the future, they'll be able to take another picture and tell where the changes have occurred. Good stuff.
 The problem with having your eyes dilated is that you can't focus on anything up close. Oddly enough, driving is no problem, if you have sunglasses. So at a stop sign, with no traffic around me, I snapped this picture of my pupils. They're huge! I couldn't tell if the picture was focusing on my eyes or not, but it turned out ok. Funny stuff.

I saw this sign while going to pick up LL's car from the mechanic. Seems redundant.*

*I always thought a Trojan WAS insurance. :-)

Absolutely not redundant. The effects of a bad rubber can be financial devastating.

wow, good on you to use up all that money. It's a goal I should try to aim for, to be on top of all that stuff you are paying for anyways.

I had an eye exam last year at this time. Driving home, it was already dark outside and all the outdoor Christmas lights looked especially amazing through dilated eyes!
