Does She or Doesn't She?

I went to the eye doctor yesterday because I need new glasses. The last time I went, my regular doc wasn't there, so I saw a sub. The sub said, "Did you know you have cataracts?" Nooooo, no one had ever mentioned that before.

Today my regular doc was there, so I asked her to tell me more about the cataracts. She said she'd have to wait until after my eyes were dilated before she'd know if I had them. I told her that the last doc told me I had them, and that my eyes weren't dilated then. She said the way to tell is by looking at the dilated eyes.

Turns out, I don't have cataracts, just some yellowing of the lens, which is caused by aging normal processes.

I doubt the substitute doctor will be asked to come back.
