Creature of Habit

I have just have travelled over three-hundred miles to visit my optometrist, the same optometrist I have had since I was eighteen years old.

When we moved to Washington three years ago I thought about finding a new eye doctor here, but Dr. Hampton and I have been through so much together. He understands my eyes, he gets me when I tell him that one contact lens fits but the other doesn’t. Thanks to him, I wear a different brand of contact lenses in each eye, and I’m comfortable and I can see just fine, thank you very much.

So, every fall I make the trip back to see him for my annual eye exam. As an added bonus, I get to have a visit with my BFF in our old familiar place.

Hmmm….do you think I’m adverse to change? I just hope that Dr. Hampton isn’t planning on retiring any time soon.


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
  1. I think some things in life we should be quick to go with the flow for and others, (especially health related) we should stay with the familiar. Hope you have a great weekend! :O)

  2. I can follow that line of thinking! And those first glasses are super cute.

  3. I totally understand! I have hated to change doctors here. Glad you got to see your friend!!!
