I Can (Still) See Clealy Now...
« on: January 23, 2012, 07:08:34 PM »
...Pumpkins! ;D

Had my eye exam today as part of my HIV and regular medical followups:

-Still 20/18 vision.
-Visual field test: Primo Results! (can really see out the corners of my eyes)  ;)
-Pressure at 12
-Blood glucose 135 after a light lunch (since I had an afternoon eye appointment)
-Doctor said my eyes are nice and clear (now if I could only shoot lasers)  :o

Oh, and just for giggles, I can still touch type 85 wpm (net correct).


 ;D ;) :)

Eye exams, ick.  I had one a couple weeks ago.  Drove myself to the place.  The lady was going to dilate my pupils, and I asked her if I would be alright to drive and she said "Oh yeah," (yeah right, I had tons of trouble).  The doctor said my right eye has a hemorrhage and my left eye shows macular changes and pressure on the retina. 

Now that I have glasses again (the ones I had were broken), I can see things at a distance which I cannot do without glasses.  Happy about that.

Congrats on your exam, and great glucose level.
