Going to the optometrist is a bit like going to a (legal) and fancy drug dealer. You are buying something to hide a problematic symptom. Something that you need more of since the effects of the first dose aren’t strong enough anymore. Something that will instantly make you see super clearly, and that’ll have some potentially nasty side effects later on (lattice degeneration, retinal detachment, blindness, all things that happen to far more myopes).
