Oh, more doc stuff...

For as long as I can remember I've had 20/15 vision, sometimes 20/10 in one eye. For those who don't know, 20/20 means you can read at 20 feet what the average person can read at 20 feet. 20/15 means you can read at 20 feet what the average person has to be 15 feet away from to read, so better than average. 25/20 is the opposite way. Well, doing the simple wall chart test this morning I couldn't do 20/15 to save my life, but I got 20/20. OK. Then the one-eyed version - right eye first, 20/20. Left eye - kinda blurry, and I ended up 25/20. For some reason that's really bugging me, like my eyesight meant more to me than I realized and hearing that it has degraded rubs me the wrong way. It is especially odd since the floaty thing in my right eye is only mildly annoying, and that mainly because it distracts me at times. And that's a much more direct example of my vision degrading.

It may just be the 4 hours of sleep I had and the fluorescent lights, etc, or not. In any case I need to find an optometrist covered by my health plan. This center doesn't have them on staff, and I should have my eyes checked since it has been over 10 years since I had a full exam (probably my last FAA physical sometime around 1990-1991). And I do want to find out more about the floaty thing, just in case.
