Our World - Over exposed

Today I had my eyes examined. As part of the exam, they put drops in my eyes to make them f-stop 1.0, so the doc could peer inside. It takes 5 or 6 hours for the drops to wear off, so all afternoon my world looked like one of those old washed out photos where I forgot to set the ISO of some other setting. As the sun went down the contrast returned and I as I post this, I can look at the white blogger window with squinting. And yes, I will be getting new glasses. My near sightedness is less severe than last year.

I know exactly how you feel. I had my eyes dilated a week ago today. I could hardly see for several hours. I thought they were going to "reverse" the dilation after the examination(I had asked them to)...but it didn't happen.
I know that you'll be glad to have your new prescription and that you'll be seeing better very soon.

Ah, I'm going to have to do the same thing soon! Thanks for the reminder! Now I'll be prepared for dilated eyes!! Hope you have a great week, Lew! And you'll be seeing better soon!

OMG! I never thought of eye test drops and its resulting dilated vision as washed off blured pics! Hats off to your imagination:)
