    Funny that they won't put in to reverse the dialted pupils...maybe its to persecute u?
    Mark...ur not even supposed to look at her face but across the room.
    I don't usually tell people this but if its kinda nice to look into someone's eyes if 1) they're nice looking girls and 2) if they smell really nice. OK...disclaimer to follow...

    "Gee, looks like the 4th nose hair in the left nostril is going gray doc, maybe you should have a looksee?"

    I just had my pupils dilated this past weekend and it was no sweat. They used some gentler eyedrops that didn't affect my vision as long. In fact, I didn't even feel that affected by bright lights or sunlight like I usually do.
    On the weird side, they diagnosed me with a slight astigmatism and want me to try some new contacts to correct it. Apparently the lenses are thicker at one end so the they rotate into the right position on my eye. I tried a trial pair and I think they'll take some getting used to. Anyhow, they had to order another pair because one of the lenses they gave me caused an overcorrection.
    And I love going to the eye doctor. The female technicians that work there are hot! Can't wait for those new lenses to come in. [​IMG]

    Hell that's the easy part. I had to go because I had blocked tear ducts in my left eye. I had to sit and rest my chin on the support thing. Look directly at him as he put a syringe filled with saline into my tear duct to flush it. All without blinking! I didn't hurt one bit. Just felt a little strange.
    For those that don't know, your tear ducts aren't in the corner of your eyes. If you look closely you will see a tiny opening in the edges of your eyelids. Those are the tearducts.

    In the last month I have had nine stitches taken out of the newly transplanted cornea in my left eye - sixteen remain. Talk about taking "Now, don't move!" seriously . . . .

    Quit it...
    You guys are scaring me.
    I'm finally going to the eye doctor for the first time since grade school and you are all freaking me out. [​IMG]
    Seriously, I will be going to the eye doctor's for the first time for blurry vision what should I expect for my first visit in over 15 years?.
    Should I have someone else drive me to the appointment just incase they do dilate my eyes?

    I can drive after the procedure. Just bring a pair of sunglasses, as the dilation will make your eyes more sensitive to light for a couple hours.

    Oh no! Why did I come take a look at this thread? I have this thing about my eyes. Remember how Charlie in "So I Married an Ax Murderer" reacted with the "ear thing?" Well, I'm pretty much like that but with my eyes. I was avoiding this thread on purpose, but it's like a traffic accident...I just had to look. Just reading all the above posts has my eyes in tears! I'm out'a here.

    Yeah you can drive OK after, just don't expect to read anything.
    I needed some dielectric grease for my motorcycle and had to ask the guy at the parts store where it was because I couldn't read the boxes. It's BAD

    oh and the eye pressure test sucks too. I don't like shit in my eye so he couldn't use the blue light thingy and had to blast me with air.

    I got the "air cannon" glaucoma test too. And they like to have photos of the eye structure, so they line each eye up one at a time and FLASH! ...take a instant photo. The flash they use is so intense that I'm completely blinded for 30 seconds or more and partially so for about five minutes. The techs usually have to lead me by hand from the testing area to the examination room. [​IMG]

    On my last visit, the doctor gave me some new drops to un-dilate my pupils. I guess they're just supposed to reduce the time it takes for your eyes to recover from the dilating drops, but I can't really testify to their effectiveness because I did what I always do after I get dilated - I went home and took a nap.

    EW EW EW!! What I want to know is how do you guys put those THINGS (contacts) into your eyes without freaking?!?!?! EW EW EW!! I hate anything in my eye. I haven't been to the eyedoctor in about 15 years or more (I'm 29 now). Should I? I'm completely blind in my right eye. I wonder if they've come out with a magic treatment for that... Maybe automagically transplant me a good optic nerve!! (yep it's the nerve that's messed, not the eye itself - since birth).
    oh yeah, and all the posts above this one?? EW EW EW!!!
