Years ago, my son informed me that not only was I uncool, but that being an optometrist was also uncool. Had my employee said as much, I would have documented it officially in the personnel file.
Since he was my son, I just made him clean the garage.
While doing so, my son tested me with new terms that the “cool kids” use. I totally flunked his cool test. (I am apparently still uncool because I just said “totally”.)
So I wrote a blog titled “Optometry on fleek” to make sure all ODs continue to be cool (and understand what the cool kids say in their offices).
I give you: “Optometry on fleek: part II.”

First of all, “on fleek” is out. Do not say it—you will be seriously uncool if you do. Say this instead.
Lit: turned up, or popping, hot, hip. I am old, and this used to mean drunk. I am sure all the teenagers say this about their ODs.
Yeet: It sounds like a crazy bird noise, but it is actually a versatile comment. It can be an exclamation, verb, or noun. As an exclamation, it expresses excitement—usually happy, but it may also be nervously. It can be an exclamation of victory, or a battle cry.
For example, you might say, “Yeet, I have three infants coming in this afternoon!”
As a verb, it means to discard (throw away) with high velocity.
For example: “With the toddler not cooperating, I was afraid he would yeet my occluder at my head.”
It can also be used as a battle cry while yeeting: “Yeet” yelled the toddler in my face when I tried to examine him.
