As I wrote elsewhere:
NYC & me: an eye report :). The test was about 30 minutes. They put these over-sized lenses (like contact lenses but thicker and bigger) on my eyes and they had wires attached to them. I had a mask over my eyes and sat (with eyes closed as instructed) for 15 minutes in a dark room so that when they came back (and only had a dim red light on) they could test what my retina was doing for night vision. And then they did day vision tests after. The last test was wild, it was to check how my eye sees light and had fast coming patterns with little squares like a swirling checker board (but much smaller) in black and white coming so fast that it was disorienting. I had to do that part a second time as I forgot not to move my eyes, it was so surprising. They had tried to tell me but how can one prepare for that?! I held my eyes still the second time. My retina specialist will get all results when I have all the tests done. So I have no idea about the results at this time. The time spent there was about 2 hours, with eyes dilated and waiting time before and after. But it was a really nice place, clean, very nice architecture (Asian feeling to me, quite lovely) and very nice staff. So that was great. And I went by a Trader Joes and Whole Foods and came back with 1 bottle of rose kombucha, LOVELY rose oil lotion (new at Trader Joes) and a new tea also from Trader Joes. Because who does not need more tea? Well, probably not me but I got it anyway. It was warm and sunny today and I got a lot of walking in. So overall, it was a good day. However, my vision is worse tonight but I think the surface of my eye (one of my problems is a cornea one) was impacted by the lens things they used to test my vision and I know enough about this to know that it will get better again, so I am not worried.
I bought silver-backed faux pearl earrings; I had some that I liked
but I misplaced them; I bought these ones as the silver-backs I am hoping
will be less reactive (green turning) but we will see!
Tonight we ate leftovers, watched the Walton's and before that I made a
cookie box into a tea box :)
Tomorrow we are going to the VNA rummage sale!
So exciting, one never knows what one will find!
It's been a really nice Bright Week,
I feel like God is really helping me take one step at a time
in all things.
Praying for so many; so many suffering.
May God have mercy on us!
