After about a couple of months of squinting at sign boards, blurred vision when staring at my computer screen for prolonged hours and getting the occasional headache, I decided to take a trip to my local optometrist.
The optometrist put me through an eye test which required me to wear this hollow pair of spectacles that enabled him to put different lenses in.
Without any lenses inserted I could just barely make out the last line of letters on the screen.
Or so I thought.
With each lens he inserted, he asked me to read the bottom line again.
And my 'B' had suddenly became a 'T'.
"Oh my god... I've been reading the wrong thing all the time .. and you didn't say anything !!"
My optomestrist just smiled and continued the test. I realised he probably hears that line a hundred times a day, but for me it was a first.
By the end of the 30 minute test, the verdict was that I would require spectacles (no surprises there). But I would only require it mostly at night times and when I was driving.
I can no longer be known as the only member of my team who doesn't need to wear glasses.
