I Can’t See You

Reading glasses

Yesterday Greg and I went to the optometrist to see if our vision had changed in the last two years.  I am an occasional glasses wearer and Greg proudly wears contacts – claiming that his vision is never blurry.

Our doctor was very knowledgable and humorous as well. He let Greg and me have our eye exam at the same time all the while making us laugh – or we made him laugh, not sure which – but I know we laughed quite a bit during the appointment. He is interested in the way the eye works and gave wonderful examples using things around us and even space – to illustrate his points. Since I have always been fascinated with anything to do with “space” – it was fun AND informative.

After examining my eyes for distance and nearness – it was determined that my eyes still have not changed that much over the last 10 or 15 years – except for that pesky problem reading while having my glasses on for distance. So I will now have the type of prescription called a “progressive lens” that will be good for both and now I will no longer have to take my glasses off while watching TV to check messages or play games on my iPad or iPhone. I also have had to do this with my prescription sun glasses in the car.

Since I am one of those who only wears glasses to watch TV or drive – I asked Dr. Louie if he thought that it is acceptable – or even good for my eyes to only wear them once in a while.  He responded with, “Sure – but you might be missing some things :)”

An interesting thought. What am I missing? If I can’t see you clearly at quite a long distance – is this bad? Since I am used to things in the distance being a little blurry – I don’t know anything different.   I am oblivious of what I am missing.

How many times are we oblivious of things just outside our ability to see, hear or sense them?  The chaos, the noise, the distractions – that are there – and yet, not there.

Anyway – these progressive lenses allow me to see both distance clearly and up close – but I do have to adjust.  I’m just not used to them.  And I guess that’s how it is in real life too.  Constant adjustments for things I can see and things I can’t.  Maybe we all need to have occasional adjustments in our spirit so we can see things clearly.

Just a thought…

God Bless
