My Eyes

So we WAY overshot how much we needed to put into our Flex-Spending account... and we are supposed to use all of the money by 08/31, so I (Nate) decided to go to the eye doctor. I'd never been before so this was a new experience for me. I went last week and found out that I have 20/15 vision--which I'm really happy about. I also found out that I don't like the stupid drops that dilate your eyes. I thought the little roll-up sunglasses were a joke when they gave them to me... but I quickly found out that they weren't joking. I tried to go out to my car and was COMPLETELY blinded. Needless to say those silly looking glasses saved my life and I was able to locate my car (it was only 15 feet from the door).

As the Doctor was showing me the pictures of my eyeballs I noticed a little “Email” button on his computer screen... so I did what any nerd/computer-geek would do, and asked him if he would email me the pictures. He said he had always wanted to try using the email button, so he agreed... and here they are! I know this will probably gross some of you out, but I think it’s really cool:

I've always liked to see my eyes like that when I go see the eye doctor (I go every year since I wear contacts). It's kinda cool looking at them that way. By the way, this is the first time I'm posting on your blog, I think. You can check out my blog, too. :-)

That's a little bit cool, a little bit gross. You lucky punk with 20/15 vision... some of us are stuck with 20/35, and have to get lazar-beam surgery if we ever hope to see street signs with our own eyes again... j/k That's cool. – Matt

Nate your are hilarious! I think I might just have the doctor email me the photos of my kids eyes tomorrow!

Yep, you're right. That does gross me out. But in a cool grossed out way.
