Today, I had an eyetest. (I suffer from fairly severe myopia). My eyes have changed significantly since I last had one (my left eye needs a slightly less strong lens, but my right eye needs a stronger one). Wierd.

New glasses therefore ordered, at a price of GBP 133. (About $200). It doesn't seem fair to me that, through no fault of my own, I have to pay opticians money in order to read. I'm sure universtal coverage of lenses on the NHS would be a vote-winning thing to put on a manifesto, and not too expensive either.
