...my vision will no longer look like this without contacts/glasses:
Yes, that's right. After much saving, and whining, and setbacks, and extra work to get the money, I have finally succeeded in accumulating enough money to get my beloved laser eye surgery.
Say it with me: WOOOOOO HOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!
Because I have astigmatism, and have to wear toric lenses (which kind of help the shape of your eyeball), I have to abstain from wearing contacts for three weeks so my eyes...unshape. Or something.
Today is day 1 of wearing my glasses again. Since I got contacts in...8th grade, I've pretty much worn them and NOT glasses. Here and there, sure, but not constantly. So after all day of glasses-wearing my ears hurt, because they're not used to having large thingies hanging out behind them.
Also, putting on my makeup this morning was really...exciting, since I couldn't really see what I was doing.
But what is for reals exciting is the fact that I'll be able to see my alarm clock in the morning, and not have to have it 6 inches from my face and I'm still squinting to read the numbers. It will be exciting to not have to stick my finger in my eye twice a day and blinkety-blink a little clear disk around. It will be exciting to actually be able to see the big "E" on the eye chart, instead of just knowing that it's down at the end of the room, and only see a big gray blur.
Let the countdown begin!
