I've begun to realize that I am getting old. I am noticing wrinkles on my face and I can't stay up past 10 pm anymore. I don't think that I am old, I'm just moving in that direction. The biggest sign is that I have to squint at every presentation and street sign. I've put it off until I am 25 - but I think I may need to just suck it up and wear contacts or glasses all the time now.
I went to the eye doctor on Saturday to get a prescription for contacts. I've never worn these before and let me say - I am not a fan. Sticking something in my eye is crazy unnatural; it's right up there with tanning beds and Donald Trump's hair. Some things are just not supposed to exist.
I am going to give them a try a though. They do seem uber convenient. Saturday and Sunday went pretty well; it just felt like I had an eye lash in my eye the whole time. Monday morning was a wreck. I was running late and couldn't get the stupid lens in my eye. Then it fell in the sink and I had to take the time to clean it, but I didn't really clean it so when I did get it my eye it burned. Bad. Which caused me to yell and hop around the bathroom grabbing at my eye. When your eye is burning it doesn't really like to open up which made it ridiculous hard to get the lens out. When I finally did pry my eye open and pull the lens out I was so fed up that I threw the lens away, grabbed my glasses and headed to work.
Today I was able to get them in without burning my cornea off, but getting them out was another story. It took a LONG time and involved me scraping the inside of my eyelid with my nail. Twice. I'm not sure this is going to work out for me. I am either going to blind myself or master contacts. I hope it's the latter.
