Story
Introduction
I've run my own little freelance web design firm, traveled around the world, and decided books are best read in the confines school walls. So I went back to study economics and math. Maybe my next adventure will include lions or space crafts.

I wear glasses every waking moment of the day. To the extent that they can be an extension of my person, they are the closest I can get to acquiring bionics and fulfilling a childhood fantasy of being some sort of cyborg or superhuman. Weaknesses eradicated by the advancement of technology and all of that fantastical philosophical questions that make life interesting for something that is truly boring and can serve the basis for childhood petty insults. When I arrived in Norman for law school, my vision was already mediocre to say the least. After countless hours reading case books and cases on monitors, it was obvious that my vision was struggling again and the search for a doctor who could provide me a decent enough prescription began. Like Indiana Jones looking for the Lost Ark, I started hunting around and stumbled upon Dr. Smith and Classic Vision. That first appointment told me I had found what I was looking for. I’m not a medical person. Biology was on par with English classes for me; a good place for me to doodle, not pay attention. But Dr. Smith would walk me through what was happening with my vision and explain why they were happening, what to expect in the future with my vision, and how to help minimize some of the strain. (Apparently, bionic eyes need lubrication so eye drops are a must.) We spent what was probably an excessive amount of time for him trying to make sure my prescription was correct and that I could see well. It was the type of bedside manner doctors are not known for, because it was wonderful. It wasn’t sterile or generic. It was specific to me and practical. It was advice from someone wanting you to find value in your visit, because he knows you don’t really want to lose your vision. It’s just something that happens to you and you have to deal with it, but that doesn’t mean it has to be unpleasant. It’s a good philosophy he puts into practice, not just espouses. Fortunately, that carries over to the rest of the staff within his office. Each of the lovely ladies running the front, sizing your frames, and helping you pick the special features of your lenses are informative, friendly, and considerate. The phone will ring consistently while you are there, but you won’t feel like you are second to the phone beyond, the moment they take to ask the person on the line to “please hold.” You matter to the entire staff and it shows in how you are treated. If you ask for their honest opinion how you look in the frames you are considering (it’s safe to say many people can use an outsider’s opinion on style and appearance matters), they will tell you yes or no with spirit and honesty. I have had frames recommended to me that cost less than others, because they look better than others for my face and that’s important to me, because it suggests that the dollar isn’t the driving motivator. If you’re going to have fake bionic eyes, they might as well look good right? It’s unfortunate that not all medical visits of some sort aren’t as pleasant, but if you are looking for an optometrist, I completely and whole-heartedly recommend Classic Vision and Dr. Smith for a personal assessment and recommendation of corrective lenses. Be sure to ask questions while there, because they will provide you as much help and care they can, if they know what you are looking for or what concerns you. It’s a safe place where you do not need to worry. Enjoy it.
