Well, yes I need business contacts too! BUT I got a wild hair. Yep. I love my glasses, I love bold, in your face eye glasses, sun glasses. I can hide behind them, I can use them when I'm in my power mode (oh, I'm so deluded on that one) - and I can see things with them that I couldn't see otherwise.
But for some crazy reason I decided I wanted contacts and I discovered "H" has VISION insurance on me. Woo hoo. I came home wearing contacts from my eye exam today. Never mind it took over an hour to insert them Today I can wear them for four hours. I never want to take them off. I am FREEEEEEEEEEE. It is the oddest feeling. Why haven't I done this before? Well, when I inquired about them years ago they were incredibly expensive and I was told my vision problem could not be corrected by contacts. But hey, it's 2008 and I decided to check it out! I need new glasses too - the blurriness I am experiencing at the end of the day and when reading for very long is just a need for more lens power.
For years, until I was in my forties, I enjoyed perfect vision. It was incredibly hard to get used to not having perfect vision....but I'm there now. Reality is reality.
Anyway, I'm dreading taking them out and putting them back in tomorrow - but what fun - what freedom - shouldn't be a big thing, but it is an incredibly big thing. As soon as the dilation drops wear off, I hope I find I am seeing as well as I think I am. Did you know they make BIFOCAL contacts? LOL, baby boomers will never age, we won't!!!! No one would ever know if I didn't have a big mouth!
It's awesome to be able to see to put on makeup. The down side is that I can clearly see my face, and, uh, there's a few more wrinkles there than I thought there was.
