Eye Checkup At Ayala
It's not in my plan to have an eye checkup this time but my NSTP officer is requiring me to submit a medical certificate stating the specific eye problem I have. He gave a week to comply and our next meeting will be the deadline already. It urged me to have a quick walk to Ayala in a gloomy afternoon right after I finished some of my tasks. I never thought before that I will be needing that, so I don't to have a copy from the clinic. Thanks to the initiative of @dswigle, I can share how does it went here on #MarketFriday.
Since I can have a checkup and change my lenses in any branch, I went here to Ayala where it is the closest in my place. There was only one customer which is the doctor is assisting, so I only haven't got to wait for long before I was called for my turn.
One of the staff assisted me to choose the type of frame that I liked, she articulately explained the promo which their store is offering. Initially, I only intended to have a checkup and change my lenses but I dropped the thought after hearing their deals. They have a package deal which almost have the same price that I have to pay when I only have to change the lenses. I hesitated to change the frames too since it was still all good but it is also a waste to decline the offer. I didn't make myself suffer from a dilemma anymore, and just cut the chase. I went with their deal which is kinda good. Now, I have two eyeglasses.
He pulled out two kinds of lenses from his drawer. He let a blue light laser pass through each of the lenses to demonstrate his point to me. The first one is the transition lens that I wanted and the other one has anti-radiation. Then he explained that the transition lens can protect my eyes fully from the sun but it only has 75% protection from the radiation of computers while the second has a little protection from the lights of the sun but it can provide a 100% protection from computers whereas I often using than going outside. The doctor is the expert, so I went with his prescription an choose the 100%.
After the check up, I was told that I can have my glasses after 30 minutes. I was hungry at the moment, so I went outside and look for a fast food chain to eat while I wait. In my way, I passed by these figurines, furniture, and vases. I remembered my trip to the ASEAN Exhibit in Robinson's back then with that sculpture. It is similar to the one presented as a part of the culture of Laos.
It was perfect timing after I have finished eating that it was exactly passed 30 minutes. I went back to the store to claim my new eyeglasses and paid for it, then wait a little longer for my medical certificate. Then, I was asked by the doctor to test the glasses and I was advised to read the part where I was struggling earlier again. We just laughed together when I got surprised to see that I thought it was letters E, G, and S earlier, but it turns out to be letters S, E, and G. Those are really the letters which a person who has myopic astigmatism are struggling to read, that's what he told me. I'm relieved to have my glasses with me and to know more about my eye problem.
