My Funny Predicament

I have eyeglasses with three in one lenses for reading, watching TV, and driving.

Last week, letters looked blurred when I watched TV, while reading, and driving. I visited my optician just in case I needed new lenses. He said that I needed to do an eye test. He did and I failed miserably with my left eye. The optician was confused because of the rapid deterioration of my sight. He then said let me test your lenses.

I handed him my eyeglass. He looked at it and then burst out laughing. I could not understand why. He then said, “Please check your eyeglasses”. I looked and said, “I see no problem” He then said,” of course because it has only one lens. The left one dropped. Where is it”?

I then realized why I could not see clearly.

We fall prey to small missing things in our lives. We search big for a solution for their effects are big. We allude ourselves because the problem is big that its cause must be big too.

I would have saved myself the #predicament of failing to observe the simple cause before seeking help.

Do you have similar #stories? Please share them.

  1. You have me giggling, Ali. But I can relate. If I don’t put my glasses at the same place on my nightstand, I have a hard time finding them the next morning. But I am lucky. My reference is my grandmother who wore -12 glasses at a time when they had all the weight of real glass.

    I once tried to remove my contact lenses only to realize that they were not in my eyes. A bit more painful than your predicament, trying to pull off my cornea.

    • I replied earlier to your comment< Charlee. but It is missing.

      I am serious.There are quite few different methods to measure the readability of a text with stats and graphics such as the link below.

      You can also use WinWord for reviewing the quality of a text. Under review tick ABC. Make sure that under options you ticked the readability statistics box and then you are set.

      I am not inventing this one my friend.

  2. Ali — One of the best pieces I’ve read in a long time. Short, and with an oh so sweet message. Drat, those pesky lenses.

    There is a theorem in innovation science that the solution of a problem is contained in the problem itself. In this case, it’s certainly true!
