    Ok, hadta go to the eye dr today. Was gonna get contacts, cause I have to renew my license this month and I would be close on passin the eye test, dont feel like wearing glasses, yadda yadda. Anyway, I go, sit in the chair, do all the tests. He sends the nurse to go get a box of contacts, he puts em in, has me read the eye chart, do that fine, and I start reading these flyers on the back of the door (he was amazed, he said no one has ever done that before).

    So sit there a minute talking to the doctor, amazed that I can see, then I start feelin funny, and the doctor asked me if I was ok, I said I felt a little weird, and as soon as I said that I leaned my head back, and according to him, my eyes rolled back and I was slap happy out.

    Next thing I know, I have the smelling salts under my nose being fanned with a magazine by an optometrist and a nurse putting wet rags on my head and neck. Somewhere in the process he popped the contacts back out and when I came back to, everything sounded like I was in a fishbowl, and I had like 40/2000 vision. So after 5-10 I could see and hear again, and he told me hes had that happen about 10 times with contacts, just some people have a reaction.

    So needless to say, no contacts for me. Someone wanna send me some $$ for lasik?

    What a day. And of course, after Im feeling fine, they keep pestering me asking if I feel all right. Asking if I need a drink, a piece of candy, a cracker. I accuse them of offering me food because Im fat. They are not ammused.

    Why does the weird crap happen to me?

    My dad (an opthalmologist, no it's not spelled correctly but I don't care to look it up) has owned his own practice and optical shop since before I was born. I've never heard of this happening.

    I dont know, never had motion sickness lol. Started out my stomach was a little weird feelin, then it got real bad, then my vision started fuzzin out. Then when I came back to, my vision was real fuzzed and I couldnt hear.

    I dont remember what he called it, the reason for passing out. I wish I could remember, but my mind was swimming when he was talking about it, so Im not real sure what it was called.
