Let me just tell you that I have never had a positive experience with an eye doctor in my entire life. I’ve had fine times with dentists, podiatrists, General Practitioners, and I have a fantastic Raleigh chiropractor who has helped me immensely since I moved to this city. Still, I’ve got to say, eye doctors just seem to dislike me in a completely unprecedented way. I know that my personality is sometimes regarded as being abrasive or pretentious– some call me crass and rude– but usually public servants and practitioners think that I’m a breath of fresh air and realize that I mean no disrespect by what I say. And yet, let me repeat, that I have never had a positive experience with an eye doctor in my life. Yes, this post is spurred on by the fact that I just today had an incredibly negative I test– although my vision remains in pretty good shape.
The negativity did not come from me or my test results, but of course, from the Doctor Who was giving the test. I spotted some flaws in the test and respectfully pointed them out. She did not appreciate that at all– this moment created a tension that we were never able to move past… Especially as I continue to point out the various flaws in a test that I truly believe is actually rigged to create more negative test results then the eye has actually earned. Am I a conspiracy theorist? No, I don’t think so. But these doctors make more money when they sell more glasses. That’s all I’m saying. So, if you need a recommendation for a great dentists, podiatrist, general practitioner, or chiropractor in the city you let me know and I’ll and I’ll tell you where it go… But in exchange, I would love the name of an honest optometrist.
