Do You Talk To Objects: When To See An Optometrist

Last week, I was taking an evening walk around my neighborhood when I saw a poor cat just sitting there. Being the animal lover that I am, I Knelt down and began to call the cat to me. After several minutes of making my best "mew" sound and holding my hand out, I realized the cat wasn't moving. I slowing crept towards the cat, being careful to to scare it away. I finally made my way over to the stray cat. At this point, I really wished I had been wearing my eyeglasses, because the "Stray cat" was actually a fire hydrant.

As you can probably imagine, I felt like a complete idiot. Fortunately, no one was around to laugh at me ( I did enough laughing at my own expense). You may be surprised to learn I am probably not the first person to mistake an object for a person or animal. According to the Vision Council of America, approximately 75% of adults use some sort of vision correction. Of those adults, 64% of them wear prescription glasses, and about 11% wear contacts either exclusively, or with glasses.

Whether you are near-sighted or far-sighted, glasses are a easy and effective way to correct your vision. Personally, I love wearing glasses. You never truly realize how bad your vision is, until you try on a pair of prescription lenses and see everything brighter and clearer. It''s also fun to wear different style glasses for different occasions or to match your outfit for the day.

Buying glasses online doesn't have to be expensive. Glasses USA offers a great selection of designer glasses up to 70% off. They offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee so you can feel comfortable shopping with them online. Please don't talk to another tree or pile of brush and take care of your vision.

  1. That is hilarious! I've done that several times.

  2. I still love this article! When I take my glasses off, I often confuse myself by thinking a blanket is my dog Cecil and my big black pillow is my dog Sparky. You're not alone!

  3. Love the article. I find myself pulling objects far away so I can read them... time for glasses.
