I haven’t gone to the eye doctor in a couple years because until I run out of contact lenses I don’t really have any reason to. My vision hasn’t changed significantly in years and it doesn’t seem to be doing it any time soon. This trip to the eye doctor was kind of like my physical checkup, because the results were good on both counts which basically felt like permission to continue doing everything I’ve been doing the past two or more years.

Like most people my age I spend most of my day looking at various monitors from my computer, television and now my phone. When I was a kid my mom would always tell me to take a break, and relax my eyes while doing something like gazing at the blue sky. While I don’t doubt the merits of taking a break from all the LCD monitors it feels good to have medical justification to continue doing as I’ve been doing 😛
