Oh what rough hell to get glasses!

Thursday, January 18, 2007

Dear Constant Reader,

My appointment to get new glasses has been pushed from today to February 1st.
This is also the day that I need to drive to my out-of-town doctor's appointment for blood work.
This makes the third time that I've been forced to reschedule my appointment and I'm starting to get freaking headaches because I've been without glasses for far longer than anyone should.
When did the optometry business start offering third world service?
I wish that I could find both a better physician and a better optometrist but I fell out of my mother in a country that offers mediocre health care.
And all this running around for glasses is going to cost me a whopping $78.00 for the exam and God know's what for the bloody glasses.
American's complain that us Canadian's get our health care free and that it's far better at times. Not all of it is free and not all of it is easy to come by.

Health Care sucks everywhere.

I pay out of pocket for Adam's glasses because the ones insurance will cover are mediocre at best and hideous at worst.

I think $78 for an eye exam is fair.

But... no one asked for my opinion.

I'd wink at ya but you wouldn't see it anyhow. ;)

I completely agree with you. Not about what you said about glasses and insurance but about nobody wanting your opinion crazy lady.

Wow, I saw your other posts about me.

Pretty mean stuff there.

Getting personal and name calling.

I must have struck a nerve.

Sorry you can't see.... wouldn't wish that on anyone but since you're so mean spirited I'm glad it's gonna cost you.

You didn't strike a nerve you just set off my "crazy person" alarm.
