And Another One!

I just got a note faxed from an ophthalmologist:

"He has normal vision other than his vision is not quite right."

I really hate it when people use their professional jargon on me.

And these people went to school for how long?

You are a magnet to the Weird of the World and we are your disciples. Please keep sharing. Although my secret verification word is "preck" so maybe it's rubbing off faster than I thought. Use it in a sentence today :-)

As a retired medical transcriptionist, I can honestly and sadly say I've heard these types of statements thousands of times in my career and it only seems to get worse. In the last ten years or so I have noticed that many of the newer docs cannot properly pronounce medical terms or drug names, cannot put four words together and have it make sense, and they certainly do not know how to spell. I've often wondered how they made it out of high school, let alone medical school.

I just stumbled upon your blog a few days ago and am totally enjoying your venting.

Maybe it was left or left over or sinister or something.

It's not necessarily that vague. I supposedly have 20/20 vision but I still feel like I don't see correctly, like it requires effort or something. One ophthalmologist suggested some eye exercises. I guess it's a focusing problem. No doctor I know seems to know how to better describe what I tell them. Maybe this situation is similar.
