There are a few reasons I love my optometrist. For one thing, he has all the latest technology to be able to take pictures of my eyes without dilating them, which is a huge plus. He's also open on Saturdays, and open until 6 pm everyday except Tuesday, when they are open even later. And it's right on the way home from work for me, so all in all, it's a pretty convenient set up when you're to-ing and fro-ing testing out various contact lenses.
But there's a an x-factor that just cannot be denied: my optometrist is almost literally right above a frozen yogurt shop.
Yo-Way is another one that I've already reviewed once. But like Chill Out, they have earned another post. The other weekend I stopped by the optometrist for two more trial pairs of lenses. So it only made sense that I should test out one of those pairs while eating frozen yogurt, a very important task requiring vision. Not only to read the flavor labels to avoid mixing mint and caramel, but depth perception is required to get the spoon from bowl to mouth successfully. It's all highly skilled, you see.
The contacts performed their task very well, I think I've gotten the right prescription and type sorted now. And Yo-Way also did their job, maybe even better. I just have to take a moment to rave about their red velvet. It was absolutely delicious! And even better was the cheesecake, because this may be the first time a froyo has actually had that tang of cream cheese. And when I combined the two, oh boy, it was a red velvet cupcake with cream cheese frosting, in swirled form. This was two weekends ago now, so I cannot guarantee that they are still currently available, but I highly recommend them whenever they come around again, as I'm sure they will.
I'll be ordering my 'official' contact lenses this week, and I'm also planning on using up a few more of those extra flex spending dollars on a cute Hello Kitty lens case I saw at the optometrist. Another reason to love them...
