I don't take drugs,
though you would be suspicious if you saw my eyes the other day. Holy mackerel! Look at those pupils. I don't wear glasses so i don't go to an eye doctor. I think my last eye check was like 20 years ago. Dr. Cool said that she wanted me to go get a thorough eye exam since there is glaucoma on both sides of my family. I've never had the dilation drops before and it kinda freaked me out; i watched the words in my book become blurrier and blurrier until i couldn't read anymore. Is that what the world looks like to people who need glasses? It was unsettling to say the least. When i got home i caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror - YIKES! The drops affect lighter eyes the most, the tech commented - ya think? I had to turn off the lights in the apartment. Then the light coming from the tv was too much. Finally i gave up and just went to bed. Oh, and my eyes are fine: no glaucoma and no need for glasses. Though my optic nerve is small and slightly elevated - whatever that means.
