I get my eyes checked yearly. Here how it goes:
Dr. Weaver: Cover your right eye and read as many lines as you can.
Me: (reads maybe top two lines)
Dr. Weaver: Now cover your left eye and read the chart.
Me: What chart?
My right eye is useless. It's what called a lazy eye
. For whatever reason (speculation is that my congenital hemangioma
affected the optic nerve during development), my visual cerebral cortex for the right eye never developed.
My left eye is extremely far-sighted. Without my glasses I cannot read anything but the largest of signs.
If the zombie apocalypse comes and I break my glasses, I'm screwed.
