I went to the eye doctor yesterday. Finally. It's been about ten years since I've needed reading glasses. I was the only one in my family who didn't need glasses until then!
But now I need glasses for distance. More so when I'm tired.
I explained that I've tried using glasses while driving, but the frames cause use blind spots, and I rely on my peripheral vision a lot. So the doctor suggested contact lenses.
I was glad, since I was going to ask. My previous eye doctor said I *must* get bifocals! OMG; I can car sick in an elevator. Bifocals, and I'd be curled up in the fetal position somewhere!
So this new doctor said I could have contacts for distance, and use weak readers for computer work. Yay!
I *never* wanted to try contacts before. The idea of something in/on my eyeballs just wigged me out. But now it seemed it was time to try.
He put the in for me. OMG! The whole world came to life!
Then, of course, came the crash course. I had to be able to do it myself. Hahahaha! It could have been a video gone viral on Youtube! Well, aside from the ...err… colorful language I used. I didn't realize my potty mouth was that out of control until I repeatedly poked myself in the eye! Good thing there were no children or nuns in the waiting room.
This morning it only took me six attempts to get the right one in. I really hope I can pull them out again tonight without blinding myself!
