Time for Blinding

This afternoon (scheduled as late in the day as possible to reduce the amount of time I have to be off work) I have my annual diabetic eye exam. I've heretofore shown no sign of macular degeneration (as distinct from relatively normal age-related astigmatism), but as diabetes is a risk factor for it, I need to get screened annually. It's not the exam itself that bugs me as much as having to have my eyes dilated and thus being unable to read anything or use the computer for much of the afternoon after the drops go into my eyes.
