So, story time!
I just went to the eye hospital because of this mild pinkness in my eye leading to some stingy sensations and general discomfort. It didn’t go away after a week so I decided to go to the eye doctor.
After some eye diagnosis, she asked why I have two glasses upon noticing them. I said one was for distance and one was for close-up.
She asked, ‘Who told you to do that?’
I answered, ‘Oh, it was from my own research.’
She then went on to say,’ Well, in the medical world, there is no such thing. This two-glasses thing is only for those ages 40 above.’
I explained that it was to prevent my myopia from progressing, but she said that there are ‘myopia control’ lenses for that.
I showed her my old prescription from a year ago and told her that I have reduced my myopia and still continue to do so gradually. She said that was okay but emphasised that it is my differential prescription that concerns her.
She was pretty chill, though. She thought I was attending medical school from all the terms I’m using, heh. And when I clarified that I just graduated high school, she said that I may be ‘too smart’ to trust her because I do so much research. So, she didn’t want to debate with me and whatever I’m doing to my eyes with these Endmyopian do-hickeys is all resting on my very shoulders.
I did ask if she believed if myopia was reversible. She said, ‘Well, only yours. If not, we would go out of business.’
Quite an interesting stance. Almost ‘believe what you believe’ even though the evidence that I have reversed my myopia was right there in front of her very eyes.
I did say, with a smile, ‘Okay, I’ll return when I’m minus one.’ (I’m about minus 2.50 now)
