When I was shopping with my mom earlier, I ducked into one of those small optical places to ask about an eye exam for contacts. The receptionist told me that the doctor could see me right away if I wanted. An hour later I walked out wearing contacts for the first time in my life!
I have wanted contacts for a while now, but my natural tendency to procrastinate is amplified when I am faced with anything uncomfortable (and I consider anything touching my eyeball uncomfortable). I had to practice putting in and taking out my lenses before the doctor would sign off on my prescription to order contacts. I am so not a natural at putting stuff on my eyeball. It took me about ten minutes to get one contact in!
I wore the contacts for the rest of the night and mostly they felt fine. Every once in a while it would feel like I had an eyelash in my eye, but overall it was just really nice to be able to see without my glasses.
Tomorrow will be my first full day in contacts, I will let you know how it goes!
