“I was blind but now I see.”
I am not singing Amazing Grace here today but I can now see!
I did not realize how poor my vision is!
This fabulously graceless chic is now a member, there probably is such a thing, of the trifocal club! Yes my left eye, it seems, is blinder than the right. It also has stigmata… I mean stigmatism!
Geez, I follow an amazing writer, Aging Gracefully My Ass, and her name fits my mood!
I guess this is where I should say I am thankful I can still rock my contacts for at least another year before staying in my glasses full time. I am, however, I am not thrilled to know that my eyeballs have to be re-evaluated again next year to see if I can keep them!
I cannot wear glasses all the time! It isn’t a fashion thing, it’s a safety and a graceless thing!
I am getting used to wearing a stronger contact in the left eye than my right. Supposedly it will be easier and that seems to be true but they make my eyeballs kind of tired. I am sure it will pass. I hope!
I love my new glasses, they are quite cool in my opinion.
I am also having to get used to those too.
I wanted to use my old glasses but it seems when you go into the trifocal club you have to have larger lenses.
I so suck at picking things out like that!
I am grateful to the fabulous ladies my local eyeball fixer upper palace for helping me chose a pair, they said, looked good on me.
I’ve gotten a lot of compliments so maybe it’s not just everyone being nice!
I have had to get used to making sure I look “with my nose” because otherwise it feels like the floor is somewhat tilting and I have grabbed out more than once to make sure I wasn’t falling.
It IS a common occurrence in my world!
Like I need one more thing that messes with me!
I was cleaning the tiled kitchen floor the other day and wondered why it had a dip in it. There was no dip other than me. I was not looking at the spot head on!
In case you didn’t know, dear reader, when you get prescription lenses, you have 3 choices.
Choice A you get the center of the lens only for your prescription. It cost a bit but you have to see.
Choice B you get over half of the lens, but you pay way more than choice A.
Choice C you get most of the lens covered but you need a small loan to cover the cost of just seeing out of the entire lens.
It’s a conspiracy I tell you!
Of course I choose A!
I did not have this issue before becoming a member of this detestable trifocal club!
I know I should shut up and be happy I could afford at all to get contacts and glasses, but I just had to rant a little.
But boy howdy how sparkly and sharp are things again!
I forgot how clearly I can see when I have the right prescription!
That part is awesome!
I can see, I can see! Who the hell’s in the mirror? Oh my god it’s me!
