Five hours

That was 5 hours in the Emergency Room waiting and not being able to read to make time pass quickly. I was there because my vision has blurred over the last 4-5 days to the point I cannot read with or without my glasses. (I have not proofread this so don't mind the typos.) They did a CT scan and found a healthy brain with no bleeds or other abnormalities. (Bonus, I got to view the scan with the doctor.) Diagnosis: either an atypical migraine (eyes blurred before headache started) or my eyesight has changed and it just got bad enough for me to notice. Next step is to see my optometrist. I like my optometrist but he is right downtown and parking is a pain, not to mention I have no health coverage for this.

Poor you! Those five hours in the Emergency Room sound like a nightmare! :-( Well, I'm happy no abnormalities were discovered during the CT scan. If it isn't an atypical migraine, I hope your optometrist can help you out. Try to take it easy until then, okay?
Thanks. I went to a more local optometrist and my reading prescription has changed significantly. Distance is still fine. I should get my replacement reading lenses on Tuesday or Wednesday. Only set me back about $250 for the exam and the lenses. I was imagining much worse as it cost me more than $600 last time.
