A test of patience

Whenever I go for my yearly eye check-up, I always remind myself to be patient. Why do I say so? It is because there will be so many patients seeking treatment from Dr Lai, a renown ophthalmologist or eye specialist in Penang that I have to wait for a very long time before I am able to see him. Usually I have to wait for three to four hours before the procedure is over. You see, when you arrive at his clinic, you have to wait a while before the nurse attends to you. She will check your eyesight and eye pressure after which two types of drops will be applied to the my eyes to dilate them for examination by the doctor.

From then on, you will have to wait for a long time before the doctor sees you.

Waiting to see an eye specialist like Dr Lai is really a test of patience.
