Day 354 - Visual Health
I had my first appointment with my optometrist in over three years. I am usually very good about having an annual check-up, but having been without insurance for so long, I couldn’t afford it. I tried Costco, but was disappointed with everything, including the glasses (except the optician who helped me get the right lenses into the glasses – he was great). Now that I have vision benefits through my work, I can go back to Dr. Mark Bisson.
It was a good experience, of course. I really like Dr. Bisson, and trust him - I've been his client for over a decade. I was able to buy frames I actually like (instead of the cheapest available) because of the subsidy. The advantages that come from being employed full time by an employer who cares for the employees is such a blessing – I am so grateful to be employed again.
I am also grateful for being healthy. That is partly up to me, and I do what I can to be as healthy as possible. Still – for those things that are out of my control and serve me well, I’m thankful.
