*sighs* I spent yesterday afternoon in the Eye Hospital (again). Even though I'd rung up and made an appointment, when I entered the A&E waiting room there were 27 other people there. Granted some of them were accompanying rather than actual patients, but still a lot. And you never know whether a real emergency is going to come through the door, and push you all further down the queue.
I now realise that Nick Knowles has gone (probably back) to daytime TV as there was a programme called Perfection on the big screen TV in the waiting room. I could only hazard a guess as to how this quiz worked as they never turn the sound up enough that you can properly hear it. And as half of us were sitting there nursing a sore eye then I hope the programme was aimed at a target audience of half deaf, half blind people.
I should perhaps say that I've been wearing glasses since I was 7, and then contact lenses since I was 17. Without them I cannot even read the big letter at the top. About five years ago I first got an ulcer on my left eye. Since then I've had two further ulcers, one on each eye. They're quite painful, obviously you can't wear lenses, and you become very susceptible to light. It usually means six weeks of eye drops. I've also had marginal keratitis (which is what I've got again this time) which is not quite so severe as there's no infection but it still means four weeks of steroid eyedrops. Which means I have to wear my glasses. Which are not as good as my lenses. Which makes me grumpy.
