So, last Friday (18/4) I went to the optometrist for my contact lens trial… after some fiddling around, going for a wander so that the left contact could turn itself to the right position in my eye (it was 15 degrees off, apparently it’s only supposed to be up to 5)… I walked out of there with a pair of contacts to trial for the week.

(when I say for a week, I tried to book the follow-up appointment for yesterday, but they didn’t have optometrists in that day, and I couldn’t get anything on monday, so the week thing may extend to a couple by the time I can get in *rolls eyes*)

Anyway. Trialling them, I’m pretty sure I’ll get some to wear, but not sure how committed i am to wearing them every day. They’re great in that I can wear sunglasses, run around like and idiot without worrying about glasses. They’re also great for wearing out – I can put on eye makeup without guessing where my eyes are… and I’m able to put colour in my hair without getting it on frames that are in the way, or again guessing where everything is exactly when there’s no glasses on. Now I just to learn how to actually DO eye makeup…

They’re not so good in that I think my working day plus the time until I get home at night is exceeding the length of time I shold be wearing them. But I’m getting used to that, and using eye drops to extend the time I can wear them. I think having a sniffle in general doesn’t help.

Oh and I feel naked. I think I must hide behind my glasses. I kow they hide the circles under my eyes. Another reason to learn to do makeup properly… or to get more sleep!

But there’s definately a lot of positives. Particularly in having the choice in what I want to wear, wearing my sunglasses, stuff like that. And I’ve only dropped one once in a week… Rish had to help me find it on the bath room floor. gah.

(and no, they’re not purple contacts *pouts* They dont come in my prescription… that’s the hair colour that’s going in at the moment!)

  1. They don’t have coloured contacts in stronger prescriptions? That sucks.

  2. Right. Yeah, I think that’s what I have too if that’s wonky eyeballs. It affects me for both short and long sight.

  3. That’s why I stopped wearing contacts, all that maintenance. Also, at the time I was in college and trying to fish tiny slips of plastic out of my eye while staggering drunk didn’t work out well, so I usually took the contacts out before I went drinking, which defeated the whole purpose! And, if you have allergies, you may find that your contacts get really cloudy during allergy season. ‘Sides, you look cute with glasses, at least from your picture/Gravatar. You know that old saying “Men don’t make passes at girls who wear glasses”? Totally not true. I practically grew up in the library and developed a horrible crush on a librarian which resulted in a glasses fetish.
    I also grew up across the street from a Parochial school, but plaid would be off-topic here. ;)

  4. Fortunately I don’t really have allergies… and don’t worry I’m not worried that I don’t l9ook hot in glasses, ebcause i know I do – and what’s with the naughty librarian thing? hehe..

    I managed to fish then out okay so far while drunk… though I have horrible memories of having half a contact left in the corner of my eye and not being able to fish it out. Twice. Though that wasn’t while drunk.

  13. In the far corner of the room, the piano sat motionless. They couldn’t recall the last time they’d seen it. The tiny girl approached the keyboard and began to play a few notes. For the first time in years, the piano filled the entire house with its soothing tones. The owner of the property was in tears in the upper room, confined to her bed.

  16. The rain had already begun to fall. Initially, everyone agreed that this was a fine thing to do. It had been months since it had rained, and the ground was bone-dry. A decent rain wasn’t a surprise to anyone, but they had no idea how much rain would really fall.
