Mommy’s glasses is really awesome and it is one of the best buy the optician can offer. It’s not branded or anything but it serves it’s purposes. She chose a simple design with colored lenses to block out the sun so it’s kind of like a sunglasses with prescription lens.
As to her vision, it is still blur and she is still experiencing double vision intermittently. One minute is clear and the next she can’t see clearly. I think it’s the recovery process and it would take a while before her full vision is restored but I totally understand her impatience. I would be frustrated too should I have to live in blurriness without my glasses!
I convinced her to give it a month or two to see if there would be any improvement. In the meantime, I thought I’d make an appointment at the Singapore Eye Center for that December appointment. I figured if by November my mom’s eyesight is restored, I will just call them and cancel the appointment but if her eyesight is still the same, at least we have an appointment already.
So this morning, I called the Singapore Eye Center to make an appointment for the earliest available date. This is the shocker. It seemed that if we were to make an appointment as a private patient, we could get an appointment as early as tomorrow. It is only when we make an appointment with referral from the government polyclinic or OPD that the appointment would be sometime in January. This is because you pay a much subsidised rate when you come with an OPD referral letter.
I was like, “WHAT?” How come no one told me this the last time I called? I am so mad now but what’s done is done right? No point being angry (easy LJ). The important thing now is mommy has a new appointment to see the doctor on Wednesday. I hope they can figure out what’s wrong with her eyes because I’m getting worried too.
So friends, I’m gonna disappear again for a few days and settle my mommy situation in Singapore. Not sure when I’ll be back but I hope to be able to be online with the generosity of that Mr Nice Guy somewhere in the block..
