Well, I guess it is time to go back to the eye doctors. I only have one pair of contacts left and they wont refill the prescription unless I have another eye check. It’s not like I didn’t know this, but I was hoping I could get out of it. It seems silly to me as my prescription has not changed in years. However, the doctor says that just because it hasn’t changed before, doesn’t mean it wont change now. I suppose I am just stubborn. If I don’t have to spend the extra money, I would much rather not. I can think of a million things to spend that money on without it going into the eye doctors pocket.
I should be thankful that it is not a dentist appointment. That I would probably leave town to avoid. Like most people I hate going to the dentist, so I am not going to complain about the eye doctor anymore. He isn’t so bad. I wonder if I should get some colored contacts, just for fun. They have some pretty wicked colors out now a days. They even have ones for Halloween and such. I think that would definitely be neat, but I am not sure the wife would like it.
At my age, dental care becomes very important. The dentist says that people over 40 years old are at increased risk for gum disease, so regular checkups and treatments are very important.
So I go to my dentist every 6 months for a good cleaning. I’m glad we have not had to deal with cavities or fillings in quite a while. But I want to make sure that I keep my teeth and gums in good shape.
And I got a free toothbrush out of it. Woot!
