I Can See!

I have periph­er­al vision again!

I went to the eye doc­tor this morn­ing and left with a tri­al pair of con­tact lens­es. I need to dig out my sun­glass­es (what sam­bear calls my “Earth Girls Are Easy” shades), because my eyes are much more sun-sen­si­tive with contacts.

My right eye has­n’t changed much, and only the astig­ma­tism has real­ly changed in the left eye. I’m not going to get new glass­es ’til after we’ve got the con­tacts straight­ened out, though (for one thing, they’re always very expen­sive). I’d just get new lens­es in my cur­rent frames, but I’ve been seduced by the neat mag­net­ic shades avail­able for the new­er frames. I’ll just have to have sam­bear and shad­owkatt with me to pick out the new frames. They picked out the ones I have now, and they’re the most flat­ter­ing I’ve ever had, I think. It’s sor­ta hard to pick out frames when you can’t see your­self in the mir­ror, anyway.

The doc­tor found it sur­pris­ing that my glass­es were about 4 years old because they’re still in very good shape. Well, when you MUST have the dan­ged things to see, and you know that replace­ments cost far more than you want to spend with­out plan­ning, you do take good care of them.

I’ve tak­en out the con­tacts now since I was only to wear them for six hours today. But I real­ly enjoyed wear­ing them, and I’ll be putting them on again tomor­row morning!
