I had an appointment with the optician yesterday and I have chosen a new pair of glasses. The assistant actually chose them for me as with covid restrictions in place any pair that's tried on can't be replaced on the display stand and have to be placed inside a box on the counter. It's not a great photo as they are definitely not as bright as the colour in the photo suggests. You can just see the assistant wearing her gloves and customers have to wear a mask at all times and have to go in the shop by themselves, hubby would usually advise me we on what suits my face. Anyway this new pair of glasses are roughly the same shape and size as what I'm wearing now.
I have been wearing my current glasses for the last five years and would have had an eye test sooner but I have been attending the eye clinic at the hospital during that time. My consultant wrote a letter to the optician so I could have an eye test and I have been given a copy of that letter so I know what the problem with my right eye is but not the cause. I had a decision to make as to whether to have surgery or not. I am on the waiting list but have decided not to go ahead with it and I can manage with sight in one eye. I have seen two consultants and the one who put me on the list wasn't aware of the extent of the problem. I have time to change my mind about the surgery before my next appointment which will be another video consultation. I just feel like I've been through enough this last year or so what with one thing and another. At least having the eye problem meant I was sent for a brain scan and it's good to know I have a brain in good working order :-)
