20/20 Vision – Part 2: Update on Large Optic Nerves Situation

Starting on a somewhat different topic though I have to ask: How early do you typically get to your appointments?

See, my appointment wasn’t until 11AM today but I was in the parking lot by 10:45AM.  I decided to waste 5 minutes seeking advice from Google, and I asked this question.  Apparently 15 minutes is the majority of responses but one person made an interesting point when he said that he usually arrives promptly at the time that his appoint is set for.  He said that he has NEVER been called to a doctor’s appointment earlier because of other people being late there is no point in coming in earlier than promptly.  For the record, I agree with him.  Yes, you want to make time just in case you hit traffic or anything but once you’re in the parking lot there really is no rush to get signed in.

I wish I had something more exciting to report but my eyes are fine.  She said that although the optic nerves are larger than normal based on the optic fibers around the nerve and comparing it to others’ who have done the same test – my eyes are just fine.  At this time there is no need to worry about Glaucoma or any eye problems.

    I'm glad to hear that there are not problems, especially nothing major. That is always scaring when you worry about your health, especially something as important as your eye sight. Hope all continues to go well with your health.

    Thanks Maddie! Yes, nothing serious is wrong with my eyes just need my glasses to come in. 🙂

    I don't know about you, my dear, but reporting that your eyes are fine IS exciting. Much better then saying you may be losing your eyesight or something. 🙂 As to the question in the beginning, I get there maybe five minutes early at most. I learned when I was younger from all my doctor and hospital visits that you won't get in quicker. There may be rare times where you if you show up fifteen minutes early you'll get in, but most of the time, your doctor probably has another patient they are seeing.
