The most boring medical profession, optometry, has a long history of left eye prejudice going back to at least the 1600s when the first ever full book of optometry was published. In that terribly dull book by Benito Daza de Valdes the left eye was first given the latin designation oculus sinister (OS). This is in contrast to the right eye which was designated oculus dextrus (OD). Despite our modern interpretations this was not done intentionally to confuse generations of future eyeglass and contact lens wearers who would not realize that the abbreviations OS and OD stood for the left and right eye. But it did cement in stone a view of the left eye as evil and worthy of less optometric focus and study. Dr. Ted Stephens, a cataract specialist in Tampa, and the third most boring optometrist in the state of Florida said “While it is true that historically optometry has considered the oculus sinister, or left eye to the laymen, as the evil or devil eye, today we are more enlightened. The old guard has been swept away by the winds of history and only a few hangers on still cling to the old beliefs. Soon even they will be gone and optometry will finally shed the baggage of anti left eye prejudice that it has carried for so long now. When that day comes optometry will finally become the boring, sad, lonely medical specialty it was always meant to be. I for one, can’t wait for this future to begin.” He then crossed his left eye with his thumb and forefinger extended, mumbled something unintelligible in latin, turned and walked away.
