I got a letter in the post last week saying it had been two years since my last eye test. So, off I trundled today for an appointment at the opticians where I was told that my eyesight had got a tiny bit worse, meaning I needed new glasses or, at the very least, new lenses in my existing frames.
This is the end result of every check up I have ever had.
And I suspect its the same end result for everyone.
I mean, has anyone ever turned up for their regular check up to be told that their eyes have remained exactly the same?
Is this all just some big con that opticians of the world secretly indulge in to get our money and thus keep their business going??
Incidentally, the optician was very, very attractive which made staring into one another's eyes rather awkward!
Fit opticians, like fit dentists, should not be allowed. We're already vulnerable enough in their hands as it is!
Apologies to any opticians in advance!
