My employer gives us optical allowance so I decided to get UV glasses. I thought what the hell, the worst that could happen is I would find it useless and throw it in my role play closet for special occasions. So I walked in there, said "I want one of those things for computer people", and chose the plain black frame shit.
I was about to pay thinking that they'd just hand it over to me but wait, she said sit down, it's time for your free eye exam. So I sat there staring into this hole anticipating a bullet shooting from it and getting my brains blown out through one of my eyes on an afternoon in the mall. The sound of those mall goers screaming mixed with those early Christmas jingles right in front a "Kid's Choice" sale.
Unfortunately, that didn't happen and after some tests, she said, "Look at those numbers in the grocery store. Can you read what's under them?" I said, "Yeah, kinda blurry but yes." She said, "Now wear this and look again." Woah woah woah, this is high definition shit. I remember being able to see like this a long time ago. Then I remembered all the times that texts were pretty blurry but it didn't really affect me that much so I just ignored them thinking my eyes were just tired or that it's always been like that.
Now I don't just have glasses to wear while on a computer, I'm required to wear them all the time for six months until my next check-up.25
