‘Could you tell me the directions of the letters C starting from the top row ?’ with a long stick in his hand pointing at a lit board with scattered C’s of different sizes, the optician asked, if not ordered, me.
‘Right, down, up, right, left……..’ I began to say.
Then he made me repeat, maybe 5 times while putting, removing, and changing alien-shaped-binocular like lenses on my face.
He then filled in a prescription and handed it to my Mom.
I cried ‘I don’t want to wear glasses Mom, I’ll look like a doctor’
‘If you wear glasses, you will preserve your eyesight when you get older’
I cried even louder.
‘I will get you a new Lego pack if you do so’ she offered.
This is the exact moment when the journey of getting a perfect pair to suit my face started as a kid.
I must admit, it was not an easy task to select a couple of pairs as I went from shop to shop, tried way more glasses than ever and wasted time, effort and money.
