If you've been here for awhile, you may recall I was so excited to finally be testing contacts so I can throw away my old glasses.
But finding the proper combination to fix my weird eyes has been a trial.
No, scratch that.
It has been a headache. Literally.
My first set to try was for astigmatism. Cool. I could see far away.
But I couldn't read. Which I kinda want to do.
Once in awhile.
So the optometrist suggested I use reading glasses over the contacts.
WTF? I was trying NOT to wear glasses.... hello?
So I tried them out. But then I had to take them off everytime I wanted to watch TV. On again if I wanted to read my laptop screen.
Back to the eye doctor. He then suggested one contact for reading in one eye, and an astigmatism lens in the other eye.
I could see far. Cool!
I could read. Bonus!
But I couldn't see in-between... not my watch, or those little ATM screens at the store (luckily, I have used those SO much, I can do it blindfolded).
Crap again. I do believe it would be nice to see stuff without it having to be an inch from my face like Mr. Magoo.
So then he increased the strength of the reading lens.
Better, but the headaches soon set in. I couldn't focus, no matter how long I tried to get used to them.
Then I just tried wearing two reading lenses at work.
Ooh! I could see my work! But nothing beyond my desktop.
Crap. Crap. Crap!!!
So now I have gone back to wearing my old glasses. I guess I may have to admit defeat and resign myself to the fact that I need a stronger pair of progressives.
But I'm sure my optometrist is sick of me by now, but I need to get back there and order them.
Especially after I accidentally did this:
