New Year’s Resolution: Stop Losing It!

David Langford on January 1st, 2013 under Comics, Optoblog •  No Comments

If it’s the law that I have to give them the Rx, then can it be the law that they have to keep it? Or pay for another one? Or pay to have it faxed or verified by a third party? I have seen contact lens Rx’s on the black top of the Walmart parking […]

Real men need sturdy eyewear, but double bridges are so passé…

The Real Optometry Seafoam Green

David Langford on February 20th, 2010 under Comics, Optoblog •  No Comments

By the way, I have to apologize. I haven’t been using the official optometry seafoam green color in my Optoblog comics. It has been described at OptViSci. From what I gather, it can be somewhat of a range of color, but I would assume that at least one of the colors on the website […]

Optometry Comic Comptetitor

David Langford on February 19th, 2010 under Comics, Optoblog •  No Comments

It appears that another optometrist with an actual art degree has been making comics for years and now has a book out. Review of Optometry even did a profile on Dr. Scott Lee, O.D. I’ll bet he even draws them on paper instead of using a mouse in Well, I see I shall have […]

I did this one because someone searched for “LASIK comic,” and I’m sure they were sadly disappointment that I didn’t have one. Now before you get all over me for not spreading sunshine and lollipops about refractive surgery, let me first clarify that the above comic is comical, I thought. If I was told that […]

Glasses Are Too Good

It’s the return of the Optoblog comics! Comics are by far the most searched for items on my blog, so I’m just bowing to demand.

Doctor Daycare

David Langford on August 2nd, 2008 under Comics, Optoblog •  2 Comments

Now, I don’t want you to get the wrong idea. I love kids. I have three young ones myself. I don’t even mind if patients bring their kids with them. We do that all the time. I don’t even mind if the kids are somewhat disruptive, like speaking out of turn, constantly asking questions, or […]

Engagement Eyewear

David Langford on October 11th, 2007 under Comics, Optoblog •  No Comments

I once heard this from a rep, and this cartoon was immediately spawned in my brain. And I know that women don’t normally buy the engagement ring, and yes, I just use the same pictures and change the words.

Presbyopia Patient Education

David Langford on October 10th, 2007 under Comics, Optoblog •  No Comments

Seriously, would it be okay if we farmed out patient education on presbyopia to the techs or opticians or something? Are eye doctors the only ones on the planet who have ever heard of it? From the 40-something mildly farsighted patients especially I get these incredulous looks. “But I’ve never needed glasses in my entire […]

For Free

David Langford on March 29th, 2007 under Comics •  No Comments

I’ve filled in at Big Box opticals where the staff tells me that the usual doctor doesn’t charge for follow ups on things like red eyes. Unbelievable. Not only are these doctors leaving money on the table, they’re making the rest of the profession look bad. How come patients question optometrist fees so much? When […]
