I made a leap last week and was fitted with contacts. My dependency on my glasses was getting on my nerves.
And by nerves, I mean I kept taking them off and losing them around the house. I figured I could not lose contacts if they were attached to my eyes. *fingers crossed*
Yippie for leaps in the eyeball industry, they now cater to folks with astigmatism. Like moi.
I have done really good with them. *patting myself on my back*
But some days, it is about 10 tries to get them in. * unpatting my back**
Why in the world is it so hard for ME to control my OWN EYELID?
Like it belongs to someone else… it closes when my finger is almost there.
I can hear my eyelid talking out loud:
“Here comes that little flimsy piece of plastic…here it comes…almost in….almost….now CLOSE EYE!!!!
On the rare occasions when I do get them in on the first try, you would think I had just won a gold medal in synchronized swimming.
On those mornings…I hear the Rocky Theme song “Gonna fly now” playing in my head.
On second thought, perhaps I should update that tune in my head to Rocky 3: Eye of the tiger.
