a tale about my saturday

Good morning everyone,
Today I have some good and bad news. The bad news is my right eye doesn't see things as well as my left eye. The good news is, I was able to go to the eye doctor and find that out so the matter would not get any worse than it already was. I will get glasses pretty soon. That was my very first time getting my eyes checked. It was a very modern office, it was as if I was in the U.S. Once we got there we entered the gate of which our goal destination awaited. Then we saw some exorbitantly big gourdes, much bigger than the magic gourde movie by Disney, that one was small.

After that we sat on some comfortable chairs for somewhere around ten minutes or so. Next, a lady called my name so me and my dad went with her to this room. There she told me to sit down and look into this funny looking machine which I do not know the name of but when I looked inside it, I saw a house in a vast field. She then told me to stop looking inside of the funny looking white machine and grabbed another weird light thing that she flashed in my eye for like 45 seconds straight and I did not like the feeling of which something or someone touches your eyeball.

After the whole light and funny machine she grabbed a little bottle and said something like this, "I am going to put this in your eye and it is going to sting a little." BOY did it sting more than a little. Then she called me again, "yes", I said.  "Everything you see will be a bit blurry for five or six hours than you can go back to doing normal things you'd usually do",  she said. So we exited the room and sat down and I had to keep my eyes closed because they told me to so my pupils would get dilated from the stinging medicine she had given me. Once 10 or 15 minutes passed, we did the whole light and funky white machine thing again. It was a fatiguing process. Then we finally left and went home and had substantial shakes (smoothies).
Thanks for reading Ask Isaac, hope you loved this.


  1. Hi Isaac...that instrument with "a house in a vast field" is called an autorefractor. I thought you might like that word. ;) It gives the doctor an estimated figure as to what your eye prescription is. I worked in an eye doctor's office for three years...I would have loved you as a patient. :)

  2. You're going to look great in glasses, and you'll be amazed at what you can see with them on.
    PS - I love reading your posts.

  3. Yep, you'll find a whole new world of things too see when you actually CAN see.

    Having glasses isn't as socially weird as it was thirty years ago, but what I will never understand (given that I have a slight indent in my nose that can be felt but not noticed from wearing glasses so young) is a trend in the U.S. among young people to wear glasses without prescription lenses as a fashion statement.

    Blessings to you and your family! :)
