I can't believe I'm about to type this but....
I can not wait for my glasses to be ready.
Yep. I said it. I've been ready for a while to start wearing them but I told the doctor that I wanted to order more contacts so that I could go back and forth until I felt really ready to wear glasses full time.
Vanity, thy name is Beth.
In our discussions, I mentioned that I was tired of my distance vision being blurry and that I was always reaching for my reading glasses. She said that I would most likely notice an improvement in glasses over contacts because I have an astigmatism in both eyes and that can't be corrected with contacts. And then she asked if since I was wearing my reading glasses all the time anyway, would I like her to change my contacts prescription?
Apparently, when you start to need bifocals and you are wearing contacts, your eye doctor can under-correct your distance so that your up close vision is clearer. And that's what she's been doing and that's why my distance vision is always a little blurry.
My response was a hearty, "Heck yes!!!"
And I've been wearing the new contacts for the last few days and y'all, my distance vision is fabulous but my close up vision is horrible! I have basically been wearing my reading glasses around the house like they were regular glasses because nothing I am trying to see within 3 feet of my face is clear. So I might as well be wearing real glasses full time.
I know it's going to be an adjustment with the bifocals once I get them and I hope I can get used to them pretty quickly. I remember when Dan got his he moaned and complained about them for a week or so and then all of a sudden he was fine with them.
And at this point, I don't even remember what the glasses I ordered look like. So when they finally come in, we will all be surprised with my new look!
