Day 18

I'm taking advantage of the free time to do a long due check up, and today I had my first appointment with the ophthalmologist.

The result is that at 46 and having spent half of my time looking at a computer screen for more than three decades my eyes still work great: the right is perfect, the lefty a tiny bit far sighted, but well within what I can compensate without fatigue.

Interesting enough, in May, in Amsterdam during a conversation about the subject I started doubting about my sight.

The only explanation I have is that a few weeks of rest can actually fix many things, including tired eyes.

I'll try to keep that in mind when I go back to work in September.
