Or something. I've mentioned my weird eyes a couple of times before (I turn cross-eyed when I've worked, read or surfed to much on my iPhone) and today I went to see an eye-doctor for the first time. I've seen an optician several times and also did eye-training last year but ended up getting glasses that should help, but don't help enough, so now I decided to get a second opinion.
So, today I stressed to get to the doctors office from work, arrived just on time but very sweaty, and first a nurse and then a doctor tested my eyes. Without asking me pretty much anything first, which I don't like. And they didn't tell me what the test they did was for, which annoyed me even more, and which leads me to the very strange part of this event: The doctor-guy mumbled something about making my pupils larger to be able to take a picture of my eyes, put some kind of liquid on my eyeballs, then some other stuff and then he poked my eyes with a needle. Both of them, right in the middle. Or at least I think it was a needle - I could't see what it was because it was to close and he didn't tell me what he was doing. I couldn't feel anything, more then a little tug. Then he just told me to step out in the waiting room for a while so the anesthetics (?) could do their job. My eyes felt super strange! I couldn't really focus on anything, everything was a bit blurry and I felt a little bit weird... Kind of how you feel after you've been to the dentist, but with your eyes: like it wasn't your eyes in there, but you could still see through them, you know? After a while my pupils were apparently dilated enough, so I had the short photo-session of my eyeballs and got another appointment with a specialist on cross-eyedness, or whatever it's called. And the conclusion that I probably couldn't be helped by eye-surgery and that I most likely need another pair of glasses.
Luckily I have no problems with having me (or anyone else I guess) poking in my eyes, but still, this was just so strange. My eyes still feels a bit off, and my pupils are still very big. I look like I'm on drugs!
