I had yet another appointment to see the eye doctor today. Still no new contacts. He assured me that my right eye was fine and that I could continue wearing a lens in it, even though it was causing me some pain.

In all the time I had trouble with my eyes, I've never asked what my vision is in the 20/xx style. I knew the power in diopters of my lenses, but not the more traditional rating. I asked abou this today. My left eye, the better one, has a vision greater than 20/2000. Yes, twenty - slash - two thousand. The doctor says it's actually worse than that, but that is high as the quick measurement with a chart in an office goes. My right eye is worse than that.
