What a surprise

I got new glasses recently that get darker when I am outside.

I didn't want them necessarily, but the optometrist said my pupils don't contract as well as other people's.

Shocker. Another part of my body fails.

The optometrist also dashed any hope to one day cast off my glasses. Because of my nystagmus -- another thing I am lucky enough to have, a condition of involuntary eye movements -- laser eye surgery would be bad, he said. Plus, he added, you'd need reading glasses right away, kind of ruining the point of surgery.

As it is, I'll still need bifocals in a few years.

I guess I'll just hope these frames are better able to handle the abuse I dish out.
