i'm going blind
and i was like "um, so am i going to go blind or will i ever be legally blind?" and she goes "no, becuase in order to be legally blind, you have to have vision that can't be corrected."
so i guess i won't be legally blind with contacts in, but what about without? her words didn't make me feel better. instead, i felt old and decrepit.
to top the good news off, mrs. eye doctor proclaimed the need to dialate my eyes. yes! so, because my glasses are not strong enough to correct my vision anymore, i had to look for new frames while my pupils were enlarging. but it wasn't easy to find cute, fun frames while i could hardly see. i basically had to rely on the opinion of the office staff, the funny lady that was also trying on frames and the sidways glances from a handsome stranger. i settled on a pair that one lady proclaimed looked great on me and matched my hair. a good enough reason for me to buy anything. in 7 to 10 business days, i'll be able to try on the new frames complete with stronger lenses and anti-reflective coating. i hope they look okay.
for now, i'm getting used to my new super-strong contacts. fun times. fun times.
