News, but not the serious kind
Are you an optometrist or a pessimist?
Blog Guy, I am one American who is sick and tired of dehumanizing medical procedures. My own pet peeve is the eye exam.
Really? The EYE exam? That’s what bothers you?
Sure. Read those letter. Ooooh, sorry, you got them all wrong. Either you’re stupid or you need glasses.
Now, I’m going to put this diabolical widget mask on your face and you’ll look like some kind of Steampunk Lone Ranger.
Okay, it’s time for the blinding drops in your eyes and then I push a metal suction cup right up against your eyeball…
I mean, Blog Guy, does it REALLY need to be like that?
No. Just check out these very recent shots from an eye doctor’s office down in Brazil, where everything they do is much more fashionable than anything we do here.
See how they use attractive hats with ribbons to cover an eye during the exam? Note the chic sunglasses and glossy dark lipsticks to test for color blindness. And the eyedrops are made with champagne.
Oh, that’s what I want! Medical Exams of the Rich and Beautiful!
Then head on down there! Tomorrow’s report, The Beautiful People and Bleeding Gum Disease…
