Today was the day for me to get my eyes checked. Here, seniors get a yearly eye examination from Alberta health care. That yearly check makes sure our seniors are active. It also ensures that any eye problems are diagnosed and treated promptly.
A few weeks ago I had my annual check up and passed with flying colours even though a test gave me some worries until I got the results.
Today I also passed my eye exam and was declared healthy and that I could drive my car.. I do not have a change in my prescription. Cataracts are not an issue at this time.
Now one of the great things about my eye exam is that I have an awesome optometrist. He's quiet, gentle and thorough. I certainly feel comfortable and confident that I will be examined in a professional manner.
Now the kicker with my optometrist is that he is a former student of mine. So I not only get an eye exam but have an awesome visit. We catch up on all kinds of people.
:teachers, students. We also catch up on each other's activities. He's just recently taken in a partner explained why. Business is something I have very little to do with. All his kids have grown and left home to some degree. He's old enough to think ahead to retirement and what he might be doing.
So I get a first class eye exam and a very pleasant visit. Very few people are f ortunate enough to enjoy this situation.
