wal-mart optometry

for the past six months or so chris has been complaining about not being able to see the board in class and especially not being able to see the score of ball games on t.v.. since BYU's health insurance doesn't cover eye exams, i set out to find the cheapest...which happened to be wal-mart {does that surprise anyone?}. yesterday was his appointment and we discovered that not only is chris near-sighted {meaning he can see better near than far} but also has astigmatism {your eyeballs aren't round}. once the optometrist wrote a prescription for chris's glasses, he showed us to a large wall of potential frames for chris to choose from. chris took complete trust in me to help him pick out a classy set of frames. i started handing him all kinds of funny looking frames only to watch him put them on in the mirror...it was hilarious and i was having a riot of a time...although i don't know how much fun chris was having. we finally ended up picking a classy square frame. we're set to get the glasses a week from monday and i'll be sure to post pictures as soon as we pick them up.

Welcome to the club. They are cool for like a day because you can actually see, but then they get really annoying when you need to put sunglasses on, when you wake up in the morning and can't see what time it is, when you have a sudden urge to play ball but you can't because you have glasses on, when they break, etc. But besides that they are really awesome.

make sure you don't sit on them. I've been through a lot of glasses, and that's one of the many things I've learned.

Did the glasses come with a complimentary pocket protector?

Very funny brandon! Laugh it up! At least I will have a TV I can see the score on even if its with glasses.

PS. I DID notice the glasses at my recital but was too much of an emotional wreck to remember to comment on how sophisticated a couple you looked! :)
