Today I went to have new glasses made, as well as get my eyes checked. My area has lots of specialist glass shops (almost an over saturation). We went to the glasses shop that my parents went to as young adults and have built up a solid relationship with.
They immediately deduced that I had again, broke my glasses through basketball. They offered to give me a temporary hinge for my lenses as the prepared me new ones. I then went for a quick vision test to see how badly my vision has worsened since the last time I had them checked (about a year ago). My eyesight was 25 degrees higher (not too much of an increase compared with last time). More worrying was my glare, or that’s how my mom translated it. It was now 75, with the real problems starting at 100 degrees. To avoid it, he said to not use screens, read books or watch TV in the dark. Health can be depressing sometimes.
Miraculously my lens fit exactly into a spare frame they had. Very lucky considering that my lenses were shaved to fit my last frame.
The rest of the day was spent preparing for and watching from and returning from the UFC fight.
Today was a lazy Sunday. An unvoiced unanimous decision by the whole family to sit at home and do nothing. I toke the chance to do some work, start using my mole skine and mess around with my DSLR. I’ve learned to zoom better and how to use monochrome. One of my favorite shots from my expedition around the room.
I also started something called Shave Sunday, and Scrub Sunday. I know it sounds silly but it reminds me and motivates me to try to have a “clean” start to the week :).
