Yesterday Becky and I got talking and laughing about how old we’re getting because neither of us can see like 8-10 feet away, and I realized that I have not received my Opticare insurance cards yet. So, I called Opticare and they had no record of me (but I’ve been having it deducted from my paychecks like 2-3 months). Granted it’s only like $8.40 a month or something like that, but still… I haven’t made an eye appointment yet because I hadn’t received my cards yet and I figured I needed them.
So, Kent sent in my paperwork again and now it’s taken care of… and apparently I don’t have to wait for cards. I just simply tell them I have the insurance and they’ll call Opticare to confirm it. Woohoo.
I called the Standard Optical in Orem to make an appointment and I have an appointment today at 4:10. I was pretty surprised that I could get an appointment next day – I figured I’d have to schedule at least a week in advance or something. Heh. So, I have my appointment in about an hour and I’m positive I’ll at least get reading glasses, but I’m thinking I may need every day all day glasses. I don’t really care, just that I could totally see myself breaking or losing them. *Sigh*. Luckily, I only have a $10.00 co-pay and Opticare pays up to $120.00 for frames, 100% of prescription lenses and 100% of scratch and UV protection. I’m glad about that. I was always so worried I’d have to spend like $600 on glasses, which is why I’ve never really gone to do it.
I don’t totally love the idea of wearing glasses, mostly because I know it’ll take forever to get used to them being on my FACE, but I love the idea of not having as many headaches and not having throbbing eyeballs every single day or blurry eyes when I’m driving, etc. etc. etc. etc. If glasses fix all of that. Great!!!
I just realized what time it is, so I’m gonna get things together and head out because I won’t be coming back to work and don’t wanna stick Dianna with anything to do. *Sigh* Here I go.
