No Glasses Required But Needs A Hearing Aid

| Working | May 10, 2016

(I do not use glasses or contacts, but my doctor recommends that I get a yearly eye checkup anyway. I make an appointment with a local well-known optometrist chain which offers eye health exams. The whole sequence of events goes like this:)

Me: “Hi, I’m checking in for an eye exam. Just to be on the same page, I don’t need any glasses; I just need the health checkup. Is that okay?”

Clerk: “Yes, that’s no problem. We do those, too. You don’t have to buy any glasses. Just fill out this paperwork.”

(I fill out the paperwork and check the “do not wear glasses” and “do not wear contacts” boxes. I hand in the paperwork and wait. An assistant technician comes out to do my pre-screening exam.)

Technician: “Wow, your vision is great. You don’t need glasses at all!”

Me: “I know. I’m just here for the eye health exam.”

(After the pre-screening, I go in to see the actual eye doctor, and more tests are done.)

Doctor: “These vision results are fine. Are you quite sure you need glasses?”

Me: “I’m quite sure I do not!”
