Eye Checkup At Ayala

It's not in my plan to have an eye checkup this time but my NSTP officer is requiring me to submit a medical certificate stating the specific eye problem I have. He gave a week to comply and our next meeting will be the deadline already. It urged me to have a quick walk to Ayala in a gloomy afternoon right after I finished some of my tasks. I never thought before that I will be needing that, so I don't to have a copy from the clinic. Thanks to the initiative of @dswigle, I can share how does it went here on #MarketFriday.

In my first check up a few months ago, the diagnosis was Compound Myopic Astigmatism. The grade of the lenses weren't that high but I was prescribed to use an eyeglasses with the appropriate lenses and with anti-radiation. I supposedly wanted lenses which transitioned into a darker color when exposed to sunlight. It hurts to get exposed to bright lights and I thought that it might be of more help to me since I got out oftentimes now. Sadly, they don't have anything in their stocks but if I really want it, I have to go back after 10 days.

Since I can have a checkup and change my lenses in any branch, I went here to Ayala where it is the closest in my place. There was only one customer which is the doctor is assisting, so I only haven't got to wait for long before I was called for my turn.

One of the staff assisted me to choose the type of frame that I liked, she articulately explained the promo which their store is offering. Initially, I only intended to have a checkup and change my lenses but I dropped the thought after hearing their deals. They have a package deal which almost have the same price that I have to pay when I only have to change the lenses. I hesitated to change the frames too since it was still all good but it is also a waste to decline the offer. I didn't make myself suffer from a dilemma anymore, and just cut the chase. I went with their deal which is kinda good. Now, I have two eyeglasses.

Now, here I am waiting for the doctor to finish assisting a client before me in front of the Tonometer. I'm not really sure how this device exactly works but they have known my eye problem right away after I lean my face closer to it. Then after that, I was asked to read the letters on the monitor before me. The last line, which is the smallest ones, is where the one that I struggle a bit from reading. I just told the doctor that I just can recognize them when he asked if I can still read and start telling him what I can see. After the reading test, he asked me a series of personal questions like, "Are you a student? If yes, what is your course?" I answered honestly and when he knew that my course is computer related, he recommended a kind of lens that has anti-radiation features. Then, I cut him out and brought my suggestion about the transitioning lens. I explained that my eyes hurt from bright lights and I thought it would be good for me.

He pulled out two kinds of lenses from his drawer. He let a blue light laser pass through each of the lenses to demonstrate his point to me. The first one is the transition lens that I wanted and the other one has anti-radiation. Then he explained that the transition lens can protect my eyes fully from the sun but it only has 75% protection from the radiation of computers while the second has a little protection from the lights of the sun but it can provide a 100% protection from computers whereas I often using than going outside. The doctor is the expert, so I went with his prescription an choose the 100%.

After the check up, I was told that I can have my glasses after 30 minutes. I was hungry at the moment, so I went outside and look for a fast food chain to eat while I wait. In my way, I passed by these figurines, furniture, and vases. I remembered my trip to the ASEAN Exhibit in Robinson's back then with that sculpture. It is similar to the one presented as a part of the culture of Laos.

It was perfect timing after I have finished eating that it was exactly passed 30 minutes. I went back to the store to claim my new eyeglasses and paid for it, then wait a little longer for my medical certificate. Then, I was asked by the doctor to test the glasses and I was advised to read the part where I was struggling earlier again. We just laughed together when I got surprised to see that I thought it was letters E, G, and S earlier, but it turns out to be letters S, E, and G. Those are really the letters which a person who has myopic astigmatism are struggling to read, that's what he told me. I'm relieved to have my glasses with me and to know more about my eye problem.

These are the items that I have gotten from their affordable package deals. A bottle of Lens Cleaner with a cleaning cloth and a screwdriver for tightening or loosening the little screws in the frames, wiping strips with wiping strips, and my glasses. The check up is free. It wasn't included in the overall costs. This brand have such a good deals and service than the one that they have at SM. Last time, their doctor wasn't that much vocal on explaining the problem to me and the ways that I should do or avoid so it wouldn't give further damage to my eyes. I somehow regretted why I didn't went here at Ayala before. Anyways, now I know where to go again if I will be needing another check up in the future.

If you're in front of computer a lot anti-radiation features and also blue light filter are good features to have. I got mine customized and it also has photochromic lense since I am also often outdoor. I have pretty bad eyesight too hehe. Also, did you install blue filter on your laptop/phone? the night vision also helps reduce strains too.

I didn't know about the blue light filter but I always turned on the night vision in my laptop and my phone. My eyesight wasn't really that bad but it's too sensitive with sunlight or any bright lights. I got teary-eyed every time though I'm not sad. 😆

Same here, that's why I use photochromic lense and it's been a great investment. Not to mention, I don't have to carry 2 different glasses.

Free lang naman ang check up. Yung babayaran mo ay yung lenses na lang at yung frames. Madami din mura ngayon, try mo. Mahirap ksi pag may prob na yung mata, baka lumala pa lalo pag di naagapan.

When I was a kid, I thought people wearing glasses were so cool and smart looking. But now that I've matured, LOL it's hard for those people it seems.
I still want to wear glasses though, just to look cool even though my vision is perfect.

I think you got yourself a good deal. EO, I think, is the best place to go to get glasses. Ang cute mo kasi ayane, natuwa yung doctor sayo. uwu

How much was the damage Ayane dash chan?

I plan to get one which will be probably on sale this Christmas season but not really sure on how much I will be willing to spend. I do eye for 5k or less, as my previous glasses were that much but I can't spend that much hahaha.

Good thing that your eye doctor was ubderstanding...a few of my encounters were not so good but that was in the province.

Was laughed on for being too hasty in getting eyeglasses. I only have a 50/25 grade, so not that much, but I opted for the anti-radiation lenses as I was an IT student that time.

It was really helpful in curbing my migraines and I enjoyed how the world actually looked better with glasses on.

Yeah, same here in our province. They will thought that you are a nerd or something. My grade are not that much also. I just need the anti-radiation and the small correction for bright lights and computers.

Thanks for dropping by!

We didn't get to see the new lenses! Was it expensive? Did you have to pay for another checkup.? Just curious! :)

I am glad you got all of your issues checked out! Next time you will go right there! Wonderful post, great pictures!
Thank you for being a part of #MarketFriday! I cannot tell you how pleased I am to see so many participating every week. I have learned so much about the different cultures of the world, especially the small things that go unnoticed except by those looking for them. Life is interesting, wherever you are, whatever you are doing. I hope the week has found you healthy and happy, as we all look to prosper in our way of life.

#MarketFriday began as a way to reach out across the globe and learn about different cultures through their markets, especially local markets and farmers' markets, and eventually branched out and evolved over time from straight shopping to a cultural affair as it highlights how we differ and then again, how much we are alike. We have become a melting pot of culture, but, it is still the Rituals, Festivals, food, architecture, and even your language/languages that separate us... Along with the fact that is these things are normal for us. There are unwritten rules that rule our social behaviors. I see this as allowing for increased tolerance between cultures and nations, and opportunities to come together on an even playing ground. A strong culture can be beneficial to a country as it promotes unity, especially during a crisis, peaceful debate, and open dialogue. I have learned so much about all of you and it has been an amazing experience. I can only hope that learning about each other can help us work together for a peaceful world.

The new lenses are the ones in the last picture. Nope, the checkup is free and the new lenses including the lens cleaners only costs $38. It's not that expensive.
