20/20 Vision of a Life Together

Recommended Posts

Here's the story of our engagement. I am so proud of his creativity! I still get teary-eyed when I tell the story:)


7:15 pm- After working 14 hours, I started on my way home for my 50 minute commute. I knew I had to get up at 04:30 and head back to the hospital. Needless to say, I was having a bit of a pity party.


My FI called my cell and after some brief conversation announced that there had been a "recall" on my contacts (he's an eye doctor). He told me some story about how "we all got an email notice from Accuvue that several patients have had scarring on their corneas"...and so on. He insisted that we should "look at my eyes" that night when I got back into town, because he was flying out the next morning to go out of town last minute. I was moderately annoyed and said "Do we REALLY have to do this TONIGHT? I've been in these contacts for a year and a half without ANY problems. I'm sure I'll be fine at least until you get back." He insisted again that we go and rambled on about how he didn't want me to have any problems while he was away and be without any contact lenses. I reluctantly agreed.


I arrived to my house, where he had a grilled dinner ready for me, as well as a glass of wine. I consumed both, and said probably 4 words during dinner because I was exhausted. I then showered, and we headed up to his work.



9:15pm- We get to his office, he sat me in an exam room, and took out my contacts. He looked at my eyes with his scope, then performed a visual acuity exam (what most of us think of when we think of an eye exam, with the machine and the eye chart).


He kept asking me "What do you see?" To which I responded, "Nothing honey! You just took out my contacts." My patience was wearing thin...


He flipped his machine a few times and asked me again, "What do you see?" This time my reply was, "A few dark lines. Honey, you know my prescription. I can't read anything." Still oblivious...


Next he flipped his machine again, then turned my head and the machine about 15 degrees to the side, and asked "Well, can you read that?" And the screen behind him, in big bold letters said, "WILL YOU MARRY ME?"


I started crying, totally shocked and incredibly happy. He moved the machine out of our way, revealing him sitting before me with the most gorgeous ring. He whispered, "you're not supposed to cry", which made me laugh. I hugged him and said "OF COURSE I WILL!"
