Four-eyed Me

Before the holiday season, I was forced to take a break…one week because of flu and the succeeding weeks because of vision problem. I had terrible headaches, felt nauseated most of the time and had blurred vision. I consulted an optometrist and he immediately conducted an eye refraction test. I am thankful that the result was just mild astigmatism, one type of refractive error. My eye grade went up to 25 and I was prescribed to wear spectacles for six months to correct the astigmatism and another pair with grade of 40 which I need to wear whenever I will use the computer.

The optometrist said that some vision problem is just but normal when aging, much more to persons like me who spends most of the time infront of the computer. So now, this is the four-eyed me.

Do I Need to Wear Prescription Glasses

I have been experiencing dizziness these past days. There are also times that I have blurry visions and somewhat electrical storms in my head. I am wondering if these are symptoms of eye problem. As much as possible I do not want to wear prescription glasses but with my job, which is blogging, I am in front of the computer the whole day everyday, it is not impossible to have poor eyesight.

Some experts say that difficulty focusing on objects that are close often becomes noticeable in our early to mid 40s. Hmmm…I will be forty in just a few months.  This might be the reason too. To be sure, I should consult an optometrist for an overall medical check-up and evaluation of my eyes.

I do not want to wear eyeglasses or contact lens but I cannot do anything if I have to. Waaah!
