    Crap, you just reminded my I need to make an appt. for the eye doctor. I get a free exam and free glasses every 2 years with my insurance. I pay a penny a pay check for it. Not bad! I love trying on different kinds of glasses! Don't need them to read, just to see far, like watching t.v. or driving. Thanks for the reminder bones!

    Here's one lady who doesn't need the eye doctor:

    A middle aged woman standing nude, looks in the bedroom mirror and says to her husband.

    "I look horrible. I'm fat, my boobs and my backside are getting more saggy by the day, I find a new wrinkle every morning and I think I'll have to go up yet ANOTHER dress size."

    Sitting down with her head in her hands she continues,

    "I just feel so old and ugly... can you please at least pay me one compliment"

    The husband replies....

    "Well, if it's any consolation, your eyesight's spot on!"

    I refer to my annual appointment as my "how much more blind have I become this year" visit. I have astigmatism which makes wearing contacts a pain, but I refuse to wear glasses. Every year the doc puts me through countless tests and it's the same every year - there's a NEW improved (read $$$$) contact that wont roll around so much, you'll definitely be happy.

    Last year he dilated my pupil, and failed to tell me that I wouldn't be able to see for the rest of the day because my eye could no longer contract to limit the amount of light entering. I was there by myself and had to drive myself home while squinting and holding my hand over my eyes like a visor!

    The last time I got my eyes checked was a few years ago, after getting hit by a truck while riding a bicycle and having my glasses thrown into the road, where various other cars proceeded to run them over. :p Since my vision is bad enough I can't function without corrective lenses, it was time to go :) I don't really mind it much, and even without insurance a basic eye test and new glasses are fairly inexpensive.

    I do sometimes miss wearing contacts, since I think I look better without the glasses, and I don't have to take out contacts when I sleep, etc., but a combination of laziness and cheapness has prevented me from getting them again for quite a long time.
