No… I am not singing the words to the ever so popular Vanilla Ice rap song, but more so talking about the weather. More than likely if you live in central Indiana or anywhere in Indiana, you woke up to about an inch of ice literally covering any and everything outside.

No… I am not singing the words to the ever so popular Vanilla Ice rap song, but more so talking about the weather. More than likely if you live in central Indiana or anywhere in Indiana, you woke up to about an inch of ice literally covering any and everything outside. As I walked out to my truck, I said to myself, “I know I’ve had my annual eye exam from Dr. Tavel, but I can’t believe what I am seeing.” For those of you, like myself, that park outside and have to be at work early in the morning, you probably took a minute to say a few choice words (if not verbally, then mentally). My truck was covered in a sheet of ice (as well as all of my doors and locks)! To make matters worse, my ice scrapper was inside the truck. It was a ‘hmmm’ moment.

Knowing that I had to be at work (if not just thaw my truck in case of an emergency) I proceeded to put together a plan. Never underestimate the power of a butter knife. Once I was able to get to the key hole, I unlocked the hatch and climbed through the to the front, started my truck and opened the doors. After the defrost heated up and started loosening up the ice, it was then I started chipping and scrapping away at the ice. It was at that point that a piece of ice hit me in my eye. Luckily my blink reflexes caused it from entering my eye, but I immediately went back in the house put on a pair of glasses.

The moral of this story is that glasses do more than correct vision, they also protect your eyes. Even though we may not be factory workers, electricians or mechanics, we can still find ourselves in a situation where protective eye wear can come in handy.  Get some at Dr. Tavel Family Eye Care!
