My glasses were scratched beyond repair at work today. I was using a dissecting microscope when the arm jammed and I was unable to adjust it to an appropriate height in order to focus on a particular plane. A colleague gave me a hand and ended up forcefully moving it before I was able to move myself away from the oculars. On the plus side, at least I was actually wearing glasses because if that hit me in my un-guarded eyes, the force could have detached my retinae.
Good thing Pooey will be arriving in Rundon with my replacement pair next month!
