I always seem to put things off for as long as I possibly can… including getting new glasses. Or at least a new prescription.
I didn’t even realize I had blurry vision until college… silly me, I always just thought the overhead projectors in class were a little out of focus, or that technology just wasnâ€™t advanced enough to project a crisp/clear picture onto a screen.
Jump forward to summer 2002, & I finally get my eyes checked… how amazing! I could now read things like street signs and the chalkboard in class without sitting in the front row. Who knew.
I donâ€™t know which is worse, that I haven’t really had my eyes checked/prescription updated in 7 years, or that I’ve been wearing the same freakin glasses for 7 years. Blah. I’m seriously considering contacts. In the beginning, I like wearing glasses because it made me look “older” and I thought it was more likely to have people take me seriously… but NOW I’m old enough and need the reverse (keep looking young for as long as I can eeeek)… so contacts maybe be my near future. My parents are very much against contacts though, the whole sticking things on your eyeball isnâ€™t good for you… then they also make fun of me for wearing glasses (the whole “guys donâ€™t make passes” blah blah).
ANYWAYS, the moral of the story is I need my eyes checked ASAP. The big question is do I want new lenses OR new frames OR contacts… OR laser eye surgery :-O
P.S. I am bored. And Rambling. I apologize :-/
