i have no idea whether the word “DOCOPHOBIA” is a real word or not.But it is all i could think of when i saw Hariharan(my classmate)react when Karthika(another classmate) and me were talking about eye checkup.Sure,he is a good friend,an excellent orator(yea…rite 😛 ) but to be afraid of an eye checkup??!!
It all started when a few of my friends and me were talking about the department newsletter when he called me.Thinking that he called me for some important reason i went.He asked me what my eye power was and i answered.And he saw through my spec’s lenses and remarked how small the letters were and we tested his eye sight.And the topic came to dilation where i told him that the assistant would put a few drops of “eye drops” to dilate the retina and that was when his eyes bulged!He was afraid! 🙂
We spoke that it would not even hurt but it all fell on deaf ears.He then commented that he will not take an eye checkup ever!

Seriously dude,it doesn’t hurt!

    Ha, I won’t go for that eye checkup after joel’s word today morning. He couldn’t see properly for 3 days after having that fluid on his retinae. No sir! I wouldn’t want my eyes playing tricks on me (pun intended)

    the effect varies for a person,i think…
    for me,i was alright the next morning…

    Vivek don’t tell stories 😀 , the eye drops ‘irritates’ the eyes for a long time .

  10. Vivek says:

    maybe for you red….not for me….they are not meant to irritate the eyes!

  11. Hariharan says:

    I wont I wont I wont

  12. Vivek says:

    it wont hurt….go and ask an optician if u can….hear it from him/her!! 😀

  13. Kavin says:

    maybe it depends on how relaxed u r… if u feel restless when they give u eye drops, it might cause irritation… just a guess… 😀

  14. Vivek says:
