EYE EXAM
(9/1/18)

"is this
better?

or is
this?"

over 40 years
of wearing glasses

getting
my eyes checked
every 3 years
or so

more
than a dozen
exams

the technology
hasn't changed
a bit

he clicks

he clacks

dialing
through
the optical
mechanical
settings

"now
how about
this?

more
blurry?

less
blurry?"

I don't know
what
I expect

really

but I can
visit the planets
on a 3D
space voyage

feeling as if
I'm actually
out there

just
for fun

and still
have to trust
my vision
to some true
or false
guessing game

based on
the same technology
as when I first
got glasses
at 14

"now
let's
go back

is number
1

or number
2
more clear?"

number
2

I'll
definitely go
with number
2
on this one
