Dear OPSM,

Thank you for your text alerting me to my eye appointment tomorrow at 2 pm. As I indicated to your receptionist when she called twice using a wrong number on Friday, my need for your services is much reduced.

There was a time, a long time ago, when I would have been thrilled at the prospect of correcting my vision optically, but alas most visits to optometrists resulted not in corrective lenses, but in a referral to an eye specialist.

As I receive your text today my level of vision is now recorded as light perception in both eyes and my level of contentment is recorded as happy!

I know you are probably a fantastic optometrist, but do you really think you can help me?

Yours curiously

That blind woman

Julie Woods!
