A clean bill of health from a doctor's appointment when you specifically made that appointment because of some nagging condition is really about as mixed a blessing as you can possibly get in this life. Certainly, it's great to visit the optometrist and be told that - at the age of 37, even! - your vision is perfect and your eyes are disease free and come back in two years, why don't you? But it's not so great when the weird pressure in your left eye that's been there for about six weeks so far remains, and the best the doctor could say is, 'try some sinus medication.'
