I went to the eye doctor today (first time in 3 years, bad boy!) and when the time came for a glaucoma test, I was trying my best not to anticipate the poof of air shot into my eyeball. Well, I didn’t have to. There was none.
The nurse put some solution in my eyes to numb them and touched my eye with some sort of probe. I asked why they didn’t use the poof test and she said people tend to anticipate the poof by holding their breath. This, she says, can give improper readings.
I’m not complaining, mind you. I’ve always hated the poof test.
When did this test come along?
