In What Distant Deeps Or Skies

What's written on my prescription slip is OD: "-075" and OS: "-100".

Bloody Optometrist Guy. Would it kill you to put in the stinking decimal points so that I don't Google it and be all wigged out that you've declared me Totally Rock Blind?

I haven't had my eyes checked in 5 years and they haven't changed in the last 13 years. Even with the amount of monitor staring that I do for most of the day, on a daily basis, in the last 13 years.

My childhood Optometrist, Dr. Cox, said I was born slightly far-sighted. This slowly deteriorated through the homework grind and I had glasses close to the end of highschool. They make everything a little sharper, but there's not much of a difference. I can drive without them. I can see the license plate of the car in front of me while keeping my distance.

I wore them in lecture halls where even the second or third row was too far back to see clearly. But since I've left the school scene, I haven't technically needed glasses again.

</a></b></a> would like new glasses soon and I was feeling like getting another pair now that I have classes. We're entitled to something like a free eye exam and $200 (each) of gear every two years.
