Getting a new Fit

Yesterday I had my latest Eye Exam.

My RGP's were/ are on their last legs. 

As previously blogged about I had been on a hospital visit here in Malaysia to get a Topography done, 

but had not yet seen an optometrist here in KL yet to get a fitting done based on that Topo... 

As for yesterdays visit... I went to a local Optometrist I found via the Keratomania Facebook Group . 

As i might have already eluded to in previous post, my right eye is sort of along for the ride and not like the greatest contributor to my vision and i basically do most of the work with my Left eye, back in the UK I had already had a discussion with my Specialist that i might not need to do anything for the right eye, as it would not bring any value, so when i met with Darren from USJ optometrist we decided to check both eyes out, and determine once and for all if it would ad any value whatsoever, and we came to the conclusion via chart tests etc, that it would not.. 
if anything i could always ad another contact if required, but for now, nope, we go with just my left eye as the right one is "beyond" control.

Anyways after having spent several hours at the Optometrist i've of course ended up with sore eyes to the max, as was to be expected but a new tactical approach with regards to new type of Contact lenses, and instead of the Rose K. RGP's  I previously used, we are going to try Kerasoft ones instead.. which will apparently help with reducing my depth n width perception issues a bit better. less bumping into things is always nice (-: 

I'm still going to need Specs on top of that though for special work circumstances, and i chose a nice and light frame for that and they will be fitted with a lenses with "anti glare" film, with some new "Blue Zone(??) technology (i've forgotten the exact name of it, but my buddie Huai Bin recently blogged about a similar product BlueControl)

I also, very rightly so, got told-off for not owning a "Proper" pair of Shades, but a cheap market stall equivalent.
So  I walked away with a proper pair of Ray-Ban's in the end... Thank heaven i'm in Malaysia, as in the UK or Holland that would've cost me my whole months salary i guess..

All in all a tiring, expensive but productive day...can't wait until the Kerasofts arrive.
