See Spot. 1

Colorado Springs is a beautiful city, and very progressive.

Block after block is a commercial mecca making available every product and service imaginable.

One service in particular caught my eye as I drove by.

I didn’t know there was such a thing as eye specialists for animals.

I suppose if your cat, dog, gerbil or iguana started bumping into walls or complaining about headaches when using the computer you would have a responsibility to see a doctor about it.

How does the eye test go, I wonder?

“OK, Spot. Sit, boy. Now cover your left eye with your paw and read the chart from top to bottom, left to right. Speak.”











“Good boy, Spot!”

“Ma’am, the results of the test show that your dog is far-sighted. We can start off with basic glasses. Ray Ban is always a solid choice and Vera Wang has some great looks out this summer. Oh, and Shaun White just released a bitchin’ line of shades, if you’re interested.

“There is always the option of contact lenses if Spot gets self conscious as I hear other dogs in the pack can be cruel about name calling.

“And, of course, we can go straight to lasik since holding down your dog to put in contacts day after day can get rather tedious. I can get Spot in with the same guy who did Tiger Woods eyes.”

Yes, Colorado Springs is on the cutting edge.

    My dear friend is visually impaired and she uses the gift of a guide dog for her independence and safety. The problem was, her husband noticed that their guide dog had some cloudiness in one of it’s eyes…. so off to the dog eye specialist it went! Not sure exactly how testing there goes, but in this case it was imperative that this guide dogs vision wasn’t compromised at all. Otherwise… it’s the blind leading the blind. Luckily it was no big deal that a few weeks of eye drops couldn’t clear up and my friend is relying on her guide dog to safely take her everywhere she needs to be again!
