My eyes. The goggles, they do nothing.

It is bright and sunny and f'ing COLD outside today. I just got back from an eye exam and my pupils are still dilated, so I'm going to skip the lunch lecture I was thinking about going to today. I can just work from home (where it's nice and dim) for a while as the drops wear off and then drive in to work for a meeting at 2.

So why is it that health insurance never covers glasses and contacts? It's not like vision is an optional extra in my ability to be a productive employee / member of society. I kind of need it to do most of the things I do.

(I wanted to use my goggles icon for this post, but paying lots of money for dilated pupils is decidedly not awesome. Radioactive panda wears goggles too, though, and he is cynical and disparaging, so I guess that's fine.)
