What eye learned today

This morning I visited the eye doc, forgetting that they dilate my pupils and I can't read for a while afterwards. I asked how long that takes to wear off and the doctor replied that it is usually about 1-4 hours. He also said that it depends on the color (specifically the darkness) of your iris. The darker your eyes, the quicker the dilating medicine will wear off and your vision will go back to normal. Thankful for brown eyes today!
PS My vision was back to normal in about 1.5 hours.

I just have to say that I must have read the title of this post at least 5 times before I realized that it said "eye."

Duh. Nice touch :)

i went to a new eye doctor and i had this done a few weeks ago for the first time ever -- my old eye doctor never did it!

i have to say it was very uncomfortable and i didn't like it. but, my vision was back to normal like "that!". (brown eyes here too!).
