Really, you shouldn't have.

My eyes and I have had such a "good" relationship over the years that they continue to grow worse as I grow older... good times! In my attempt to be free of this 18-year issue, I'm getting Lasik on June 30th! I'm terrified. This blog is an ode to the specs and contacts that have made life possible. I wish I could've scanned older pictures of some sweet glasses I used to own, but I can't get the scanner to work anymore. New pictures will have to suffice.

These are my current (until Tuesday!) digs. It's not been all that much fun going for runs in them... but soon they'll be worthless!

Former digs. Loved these ones!
This is just me getting ultra excited for not having to wear them!
Timeline of my vision:
3rd grade: can't see...
4th grade: glasses (round with pink/purple speckled wire frames)
8th grade: contacts!
9th grade - graduate school: contacts and glasses...
Age 26: hoping to rid myself (at least until my 40's when it's inevitable that I'll be farsighted...)
Final ode...
Be thankful for your vision!
p.s. If anyone you know has a strong contact prescription (-5.25 contacts), let me know! I have 6 (sigh) newly purchased and unopened boxes (= 18 pairs) of contacts! I'd love to give them to someone who can use them. I spent over $200... and would prefer not throwing them away...
Until next time.... love B.
