Has it been a busy week!! After finishing my Theory and Methods test last Friday, I went home to have a relaxing weekend. Was I wrong! Friday night my wife went in to labor and by 3am I had a son, Jeffrey. I got to bring him home today and both he and my wife are doing well.
My Theory practical was scheduled for today and my wife and I decided it would be best for me to get it done sooner rather than later. Dr. Newman had already told me that I could switch with someone if I needed to, but it was better this way because now I'm done.
The practical covered things like patient history, keratometry, retinoscopy, and a bunch of skills behind the phoropter. Basic eye exam tests that your eye doctor does with you.
Luckily, having the power out for the last 2 days at SCO allowed me to spend time with my famiy and adjust. Speaking of which...it's time to play with Jeffrey!
