Monday I scratched my eyeball while putting in my contact. I do this fairly regularly to be quite honest. But this time, like a complete fool, I left my contact in my eye. I was running out the door for an appointment and was sure my eye would be ok.
I was wrong. It watered and HURT the entire time. I postponed my next appointment to come back home and put my glasses on.
Tuesday I tried to put my contacts in and had to kick the wall so I didn't claw the contact back out of my eye. Wednesday I didn't even try. Thursday I tried and there was discomfort, but not searing pain.
Today I did it! I put my contacts in and it didn't hurt! Hooray! It was so nice to walk around today in my contacts. It may seem like a little thing, but it is a huge thing to me! I am used to my glasses here at home, but not driving. With the peripheral vision difference, I've almost pulled out in front of at least 5 cars this week. Please notice the word "almost", I did see the cars at the last minute and stopped, like half way out from where I should be. I'm a much better driver in contacts! And I can read signs better! Since I spend many hours on the road per week, I think around 25 hours in the past five days, this is a big deal.
Tonight I am thankful for being able to wear my contacts today! I can see clearer! To see things like this beautiful tiger from tonight's Family Fun Night at the school!
