My days are spent in front of computers. 8 hours a day at work, and on days I'm blogging probably another 2-3 at home. That's a lot of strain on the eyes.
The last two to three months, I've really had the desire to blog, but once I've sat down in front of the monitor in the evenings, I could feel the tiredness in my eyes. The right one especially (which I can feel right now while I'm typing this), just hasn't been the same over the past few months.
One of the challenges of moving has been finding doctors that I like. Today, I hit the eye doctor (who looks a lot like Bob Saget) and he told me flat out "I don't know how you've been managing lately".
My eyesight has really deteriorated, and my right eye is developing a cataract. That diagnosis really explained a lot for me. It's time to take better care of my eyes.
No more waiting 2 years for eye exams. If I feel I'm tired in the evening, I'm not going to force myself in front of the computer to type.
I can't afford to miss items like this when they come along.
I'm also hoping that the cataract doesn't develop further to the point where I require surgery. Maybe managing my time in front of the computer and protecting my eyes better while I'm in the sun will help that as well.
Yep, a little bit of a scare for my Saturday morning, but I'm better off now that I know what's going on.
Maybe it will help improve my blogging.....
