I have just have travelled over three-hundred miles to visit my optometrist, the same optometrist I have had since I was eighteen years old.
When we moved to Washington three years ago I thought about finding a new eye doctor here, but Dr. Hampton and I have been through so much together. He understands my eyes, he gets me when I tell him that one contact lens fits but the other doesn't. Thanks to him, I wear a different brand of contact lenses in each eye, and I'm comfortable and I can see just fine, thank you very much.
So, every fall I make the trip back to see him for my annual eye exam. As an added bonus, I get to have a visit with my BFF in our old familiar place.
Hmmm....do you think I'm adverse to change? I just hope that Dr. Hampton isn't planning on retiring any time soon.
