I went for a routine glaucoma test yesterday.  In case you don’t know, glaucoma is abnormally high pressure inside the eyeball, which can eventually cause blindness.


When she’d finished all the tests, on three different machines, the optometrist said, “No change since last time, a bit on the high side. You’re an ocular hypertensive.”

“Thank you,” I said, “you’re not bad looking yourself.”
