I realised this evening I have dudd eyes. Yet my eye failings are of the stupid sort that produce headaches. Since I was a kid I can only see with one eye in sunlight, every picture of me was one eye squinting, and society wouldn't allow people wear sunglasses in Ireland until the last 6 years or so. Going from indoors to outdoors gives me a headache if I don't have my sunglasses on.
I can't double focus. If I was sitting upstairs at the front of the bus, I couldn't look out without getting a pain in my head because of the silver bar blocking your centre vision.
Then there's the looking at someone sitting at your side - that gives the biggest headache. I can't sit on the same side of bus, table etc as someone and expect to make eye contact.
Then there's driving without my glasses - more pain.
And now the latest is driving at night and focussing in the distance, gives a really bad headache.
I know, I know, I'm going to get my eyes checked this week, but I'm an optician conspiracy theorist. I don't believe a word they say. Their sole purpose is to sell me glasses and I'm having none of it.
btw, Queen Rania has nothing to do with this posting. I just think she's one of the most beautiful women in the world and deserves our attention.
