Dialated, but OK

Yesterday was my eye exam. It's been just over a year, and I wanted to get it done in 2013 to take advantage of benefits. It turns out I needn't have bothered as I apparently only get glasses or contacts benefits every other year. Not sure why that's the case, but it was annoying.

The doctor, a new one with the insurance change, ended up dialating my eyes and taking pictures to look for health. He saw a few anomalies at the back of my eye, but he thought they might just be reflections with my dark pigment. Nothing alarming, but something to watch for next year.

However after the dialation, I could see enough to drive (read signs/see lights), but I couldn't see my phone. It was weird. I couldn't focus close or see the phone, but I could see at distance fine. I drove to Home Depot, and struggled to read some of the displays, trying to get a few things for chores today.

Later I went with Tia to do training, and struggled to see at night, with the lights at night from cars bothering my eyes and the signs and lights full of starbursts. I couldn't see the display well in the Prius, either, so I couldn't have been able to drive. However, but the time we played dominos, I was fine.

Feel Ok today, but the eyes were tired last night, so I decided to stick with glasses today.
