I’ve been bothered by a dry eye condition over the past few days, really not a fun experience, and yesterday I went to the doctor to get checked out. As is often the case, the doctor who looked at my eyes had a bit of a complex about English, since all doctors study several years of English medical terminology yet seldom get to use that knowledge. Despite the fact that I was talking to him in proper Japanese while I explained my symptoms, he felt compelled to diagnose me using English, using terms that I’d never heard in my life. I’ve lived in Japan long enough to know that Japanese expect native English speakers to know every word ever coined in the language, so did my best to nod and play along.
Asuka says, everyone take care of your eyes, m’kay?
