I think my blog is being stalked by a semi-literate optician. First they posted a comment, calling themselves "Opticians Eye Test":
Eye exams are not designed to supersede contact lenses or eyeglasses. This exam is designed to monitor on your vision. It's something that people normally overlook but it should be considered seriously by every individual who care about their vision.
Thanks for sharing..
I particularly like the "thanks for sharing" at the end there. I use that expression a lot when I am being sarcastic. I wonder if they are too.
I am certainly an individual who care about my vision. Even more so, now I have a weird optician telling me off about it. I am also an individual who care about grammar.
Anyhoo, a few weeks later they added another comment on the same post, this time calling themselves simply "Optician". Very mysterious. Sounds like a villain in a Marvel comic. One who forcibly corrects your vision then charges you £300 for new glasses. The evil bastard.
Nowadays contact lenses are comfortable for longer periods and can be worn all day. Some contact lens can even be slept in, that mean we don't have to worry about taking them out before we go to bed. I think it is important to visit genuine optician regularly.
Clearly they haven't grasped the concept of a blog being updated now and again. I wonder if they will be commenting on the same post forever.
I might investigate getting a contact lens that can be slept in. I bet it would be really comfy, plus I could do the Dita Von Tees champagne glass routine in it.
I've not encountered the idea that there are "genuine" opticians and "fake" opticians before. Interesting. I have never seen a dodgy back-street optician with a card table covered in eye examination cards, his mate keeping a lookout out for the law while he tests your eyes shoddily.
"Yeah mate, look at this card. See it? Yeah? Ok. That'll be £300. Cheers."
If you buy glasses from them, do they fall apart after an hour, the lenses fogging over, the screws pinging into remote corners, the arms tangling in your hair forever?
Are the contact lenses he supplies really milk bottle tops with a hole poked through the middle?
I think the BBC should do one of their hard-hitting investigative documentaries on this. We need to know.
