The thing about eyes is that they sometimes need a bit of help, particularly when you are switching between looking at tiny contour lines on maps and their corresponding huge hills on the ground. Opticians, it would appear, us than we suspect.

Optician: What type of work do you do?
Me: I am a freelance writer
Optician: Do you wear your contact lenses for driving?
Me: Not at the moment because I need a new prescription
Optician: Do you swim in the sea quite a lot?

Me: Yes I do, can you tell that from looking in my eyes?
Optician: No I have seen you on the prom and thought I recognised you from somewhere.

And there was me hoping it was a sea swimming sparkle he had spotted!
