Night time.

Tag: JournalKal @ 8:56 pm

My eyes are tired.

Itchy, dry.

They feel like my contact lenses have been in too long.

I keep thinking I should take them out before I go to sleep.

Then I realise I’m not wearing any…and laugh.

Then I realise that you normo-vision freaks have never had the joy of peeling the ‘front’ layer of your eye off and bathing the under layer with cool, clean saline; such as those of us who were contact lenses might.

I’ve also had a few moments of thinking “Oooh, I can’t see well, I’d better put my specs on.”

Do you poor fuckers really spend your days blundering around unable to manually adjust the focus on your eyes?

    No reason to give up on the cool, refreshing saline, it’s marketed for the optically unenhanced as well as lens wearers.

    Just caught up with your laser surgery saga. I’m also blind without contacts, and have the same reservations you did — *now* they can correct me. What if I end up uncorrectable and have to wear glasses forever? (Because, of course, they’re inconvenient when you live in sunglasses year-round!)

    Hopefully you’re more comfortable soon. And honestly, I do that re-focus thing every damn time they adjust my prescription — which is pretty much every year as I get older. So I would be expecting that from the surgery.
