I got contacts yesterday! Yay!! :)It’s kind of a big deal.
You see, I’ve had glasses since I was 12 (ish? Maybe 13? I don’t really remember). My first pair were thin and purple and came from Walmart. About 6 months later, however, I was plagued with horrible migraines, so I went to a new doctor and got better prescriptions. When the headaches subsisted, I had to go back and get bifocals. I know what you’re thinking, “a 13/14 year old has to get bifocals?? ABSURD.” That’s what I thought also. Anyways, I’ve had those until I upgraded about a year ago from oval shaped bifocals to more scholarly rectangle ones :)Because I’m cool and academic like that.
BUT NOW CONTACTS! :)
My super nice doctor put them in for me the first time, which was awesome except one lens had a speck of something in it that kept poking my eye. Owie.
Then I had to go take them out myself with a different doctor lady. That was interesting. The scene went something like this:
Me: It won’t let me pick it up…
Doctor: *gives advice that makes no sense*
Me: Oh? Um, okay. (What?)
I’m pretty sure it took me 10 minutes to just get the right lens in place.
Me: One down! Sorry for taking so long. I was making some pretty weird faces wasn’t I? haha…
Doctor: Yes, you were. Everyone does.
Me: Oh. (Awkward.)
10 Minutes Later…
Me: YES! Both in :)
Doctor: Okay, now take them out again and then put them back in.
Yeah, so I think you get the drift of what went on. I was there for over an hour. So exciting, right? *sarcasm* I like them a lot so far. It’s really nice not having to worry about whether my glasses are clean or whether I’m going to get smacked in the face at some point and have broken glasses. AND no glasses glare in pictures! But the best part is that I can wear sunglasses. Not even joking. Mine are so cool too!
Do any of my blogging friends have glasses? Or contacts?
