Witty parents who live for these moments.

Clever patients … or regrettably unclever and accidentally funny?

How long had this kid been waiting to ask the big question?

Get in line, COVID-19. I’m getting my extremely outdated eye exam today.

Will we ever find a medium between the sorely reckless patient and the overly cautious one? Don’t
answer that.

Fluctuating vision in pregnant patients … and fathers?

And the “most attentive patient” award goes to …

Dry eye syndrome denial, perhaps

Explain “anything”.

Things optometrists can’t say out loud can always be said here instead. #odconfessions

Kudos for trying.

Sounds like a legitimate question. Anyone know the answer?

So descriptive.

Sounds like a great case study. Who wants to pioneer this research experiment?

Are these patients trying to test our patience?

Is it 5 o’clock yet?

That colorful conversation escalated quickly.

Such patient patients we have.

Hate it when my astigmatism’s drop shadow shows.

Are you afraid of the dark?

Let’s get to the bottom of this.

Fancy condition. Wonder how much the surgery cost.

I don’t see anything wrong with herbal remedies. It was organic.

Well, that must have hit where the sun doesn’t shine.

Seems like a logical plan.

I’m sure it worked great in the Department of Losing Friends.

Why would they burn? It’s just a hot pepper.

Hope the medicine didn’t expire.

So quick to blame.

Glad this patient was able to paint a picture for us.

He has a point, you know.

I think I just got a stye, in addition to nausea, from reading this.

Can’t believe they kept this patient waiting without offering coffee and Netflix to get them by.

*Prescribes plano glasses for the rest of patient’s life.*

And perhaps it was, indeed, a detached eardrum.

Ambitious patient we have here.

If guacamole is a form of suffering then I want to suffer forever.

Sassiness exists in all corners of this world.
