I could not decide on a post topic for today. I had narrowed it down to a working at home post and creepiest eye doctor ever posts and the eye doctor won.
First, a little background melodrama. Around the time of my wedding in May 2010, I noticed that my eyes were becoming even more blood shot than ever. I shrugged it off and chalked it up to the fact that I was a caffeine addicted law student planning a 400 person wedding to occur two weeks after exams. But the problem continued until I couldn’t wear contacts for more than 20 minutes without my entire eye turning blood red. This was a problem. Don’t get me wrong, I love the sexy super-nerd look, but sometime a gal wants to wear contacts (like while on the treadmill sweating like a barn yard animal).
After an unsuccessful run with the first eye doctor, I paid yet another $100 for a consultation with Mr. Creepy Eye Doctor. After he creepily prescribed me over 10 different trial pairs of contacts, he finally said, “well it looks like you can’t wear contacts.” Well, thanks. For nothing.
Not satisfied with the word no, I hit the keys and googled till 2 a.m.. In the process, I discovered that other people who had worn contacts for 10 years had the same problem-they suddenly could not tolerate contact lenses at all. I also discovered that it was not the contact material itself, but often the solution that people suddenly became allergic to. I took my last bit of hope to C.V.S. and picked up a new kind of solution, the kind that bubbles like hydrogen peroxide, and voilla, I could wear contacts once again.
The moral of this story – sometimes you have to take your health into your own hands and not take no from a creepy eye doctor.
Regarding his overall creepiness, I decided I couldn’t put it into words, so I drew a diagram to best describe him. I really wanted to film him without his knowledge to capture the entire creepy vibe on tape, but that would be oh, so illegal.
