So here is the Sunday evening entertainment in the form of a puzzle that genuinely happened to me.
4 years ago my now late mother was diagnosed with Glaucoma which then meant that i was allowed free eye tests.
at the time i was 42 years old and my eyes were 20/20 but decided to have an eye test.
all went well and my eyes were still 20/20 no prescription.
At the end of the test the optician offered me the option to pay £10 to allow them to use a machine to look at the back of my eyes.
£10 for my vision is obviously not a lot to pay so i said yes and had the test done.
After the test the optician showed me the photo of my Left eye and said there was a tiny tear at the back which most probably would never get any worse, but if i ever experienced Black spots in my vision in my Left eye then i should call 111 or 999 and explain my symptoms as my eye would need to be lasered or eye would become blind in that eye as it would fill with fluid.
At the time of this happening i clearly remember the optician pointing out the tiny tear on the photo and i remember seeing my name in the top right of the photo on the screen.
12 months later i book an eye examination at the same opticians and see the same optician.
The test is done and i again opt for the £10 machine to view the back of my eyes.
all perfect no problems.
So i ask the optician "what happened to the tiny tear in the Left eye"
Her reply "what are you on about "
I explain what happened the year before and she looks confused !
she goes back to the previous years photos and there is no tear, nothing ??
I then explain what i was shown and told and she tells me that what I'm telling her is exactly what she would tell someone if the test did show a defect on the eye so knows ive not made it up.
The last 2 years ive been back to the same place, same machine and all good.
So what is a valid explanation ?
