Adventures with Mom: The Eye Doctor
Mom has been getting treated by one eye specialist for macular degeneration in one eye. Today we are at a different eye specialist for another issue.
Mom: I don’t know why he keeps giving me those shots.
Dr. Qiu: They are to help your eye. You’re lucky they have them now. A few years ago, they didn’t exist and there was nothing we could do.
Mom: But my eye isn’t getting any better.
Dr. Qiu: Sometimes the best we can hope for is that it will stay the same.
Mom: Then why do I have to get the shots?
Dr. Qiu: The shots help your condition.
Mom: But it’s not getting better.
Dr. Qiu: You’re really not getting this, are you?
Suebob: The shots are keeping it from getting worse.
Mom: I guess there’s nothing they can do for me.
Dr. Qiu: Like I said, you’re lucky they have the shots now so you don’t get worse.
Mom: I don’t know why.
Dr. Qiu: I think we’ll just write the prescription for your new glasses, okay?
