The me that can see!
Well, I finally got glasses! I haven't been able to see well for about 2 years now, but on Saturday I went in for an eye exam, got my prescription, choose my frames on Monday and got the glasses on Thursday. YAY! I was told my vision was either 20/35 or 20/40. The lady didn't know exactly. All I know is that now when I take my glasses off I am appalled at how much I CAN'T see. Everything is fuzzy and undefined. It's like a miracle every time I put the glasses on. I can read street signs before I pass them, I can watch tv, Aaron doesn't have to read subtitles to me, I can see what the kitchen clock says when I am still in the living room. Ah, life is good. When I first wore them, walking back to the car in the parking lot, everything seemed small. People were short, cars were short, and the ground was much closer, making me feel short. But I could see wrinkles on faces, read license plates and see the individual pebbles on the pavement, so I couldn't complain too loudly. How could instantly improved vision not have been higher on my priority list?
