That said, when it’s sunny out, my glasses just don’t cut it. I don’t have prescription sunglasses (honestly, who does other than my dad?!) so if it’s bright out I have two choices: wear my regular glasses and squint through the glare of the sunlight, or wear my adorable hot pink, oversized sunnies and be . . . pretty much blind.
So, long story pretty short: I’ve been rocking my sunglasses and being blind for most of the summer, but finally decided that I’d had it. I was going to try to get contact lenses, even though I’ve resisted them for years. Just the thought of having to touch my eye was too awful. I mean, ick! Your eye is technically part of your brain! So it’s like, touching your BRAIN! Squishy! Yuck yuck yuck.Still, I was sick of not being able to see anything around me, so I got brave and went to the eye doctor this weekend in to get contact lenses. I was a little nervous when the lady showed me how to put them in, and insisted on washing my hands a third time before even trying (I mean, I don’t want GERMS in my eyes!)–but once I got the hang of it, I could see! Not only could I see, though–I could see perfectly! Without glasses! Without anything, it felt like!
I’ll probably still wear my glasses a lot (like I said, I actually like them–they’ve got rhinestones!) but I am obsessed with my new contact lenses. I can’t believe I didn’t try them years ago.
Do you wear contact lenses? Are you squeamish about touching your eyes? Tell me in the comments!
