Holy gigantic Pupils!

Image hosted by
I went to a wonderful new eye doctor the other day for my yearly eye exam. Her name is Dr. Ellen Crothers and she runs Arbor Eye Center (located within walking distance of my apt).
I was caught off guard when Dr. Crothers entered the room because she was quite young. I mean, I think she was around my age…give or take a few years. What impressed me about her was that she was very dedicated to running all sorts of eye tests as a precaution to possibly diagnosing any medical issues involving the eye. Better to be safe than sorry. I have never had my pupils dilated before visiting Dr. Crothers and I have been going to eye doctors once a year since I was 12.
Having your pupils dilated is a strange sensation. My eyes kind of felt numb. When it was time to leave, they gave me these crazy temporary “sunglasses”. They did not have ear pieces, and they just kinda stuck on my face. I thought, “I have sunglasses in the car, so I just won’t even put these goofy things on. The quick walk to the car won’t hurt”. Can I be more wrong? Did you see the size of my pupils? When they are dilated, they are unable to constrict which is what they do when exposed to light. (DUH) It was as bright as a Hollywood smile that day and the minute I stepped out into the light I felt it. It was not really painful, just VERY irritating. I did not even make it two steps into the sun before I was scrambling to put those crazy looking sunglasses on my face. When I got to the car, I kept the crazy sunglasses on and put my own sunglasses over them.
So if you need a good ophthalmologist, and if you live in Austin, go see Dr. Crothers. I swear, she is not paying me for this plug. Although she is lucky I am mentioning her because I do reach a wide audience of about 8 people.
To give credit where credit is due, Miss Laurie did recommend Dr. Crothers to me (and I thank her).

I have not gotten them waxed in a long time. I am plucking them every now and again.
Thanks for the compliment.
I should probably grow them aout all bushy like for the 80's party.
