SoCS — I’ve Got Options

For this week’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt from Linda G. Hill, we’ve been tasked with using the word “opt,” either as a word or to find a word with “opt” in it and base our post on that.

Of course I’m going to use the word “opt” in my post, but I’m also choosing the option of optimizing my Stream of Consciousness post today by opting to use a bunch of other words that have “opt” in them.

Coincidentally, I was supposed to have an appointment with my optometrist back in early February, right before my wife and I moved to our new house in the ‘burbs. Because we were busy packing and getting ready for the movers to load all of our stuff into their truck, I opted to cancel my optical exam, figuring that I’d schedule one after we got all settled in to our new home.

But then the pandemic hit and everything pretty much shut down. Now I’m way overdue to get my vision checked. And I’ve noticed recently that my distance vision seems to be getting a little blurry, so I think it’s no longer optional for me to schedule an appointment with a new, local optometrist or optician.

I’ve been looking around to find a decent optical shop in the area. It would be optimal if I could find an eye doctor who is taking new patients and who can give me a complete optical exam before the end of the year.

Being the optimistic person that I am, I’m sure I’ll be able to find an optometrist who can accommodate me. I sure hope my optimism is not misplaced.

    I skipped my exam, too. Now I can also see some deterioration.

    You are definitely on a kick of using words to their complete fullness! I like it!

    Good luck with this. I’m overdue for my optometrist visit too – they keep texting helpful reminder messages to me. 😆

    I went to the optometrist recently and told her that I had trouble seeing distance.
    She took me outside and pointed to the sky and said “what’s that?”
    “The Sun,” I answered.
    “How far do you want to friggin see?” she said. 😀 😀

    I want to get some new lenses in some older frames before the year is out, so I don’t forfeit the benefit for this calendar year.

    I have an appointment to see my eye doctor next month. I hope you were able to find a good doctor.
