One the day of my eye exam I almost asked to be rescheduled because the waiting room was packed. I’d assumed that thing should be a little slow at 4pm on a Friday afternoon, boy was I wrong. Instead I held tight and decided to wait a little longer to see if maybe everyone that was waiting was not the patient but was a companion or driver for others. It turns out both was true…it was Lasik day and some were waiting to drive others home after their procedures.
It all started on New Year’s Eve. Hubby had an eye appointment so I went with him just in case they dilate his eyes and so I can drive ourselves back home. Great way to spend New Year’s Eve, actually it was. We were both getting over a cold and had planned on spending a quiet evening at home watching movies. We’d picked up a bottle of champagne at World Market so we were set for the evening. During the visit the receptionist ask for our insurance card. I explained that we don’t carry vision insurance only health coverage. She said no problem but she would still add our coverage to our charts just in case any type of surgery should ever be needed then they would have the information.
