After spending the last 19 years of my life with glasses, I decided that I wanted to make the switch over to contacts. Although I had tried at some point during adolescence to try contacts, I had immense difficulty getting my finger near my eye and gave up quite quickly. However, I've been feeling for a while I wanted to move beyond glasses. Although my physical therapist (back when I went to physical therapy after my second knee surgery) had had Lasik surgery and loved not having to have any eye device (glasses or contacts), I haven't felt so great about the idea.
So, recently, I tried contacts for the first time, then got them and liked not having glasses on my face, although it took me a few hours to get the contacts out the first night. Also, the next day, it took me some time to get them in and out, but after several days, I started figuring out ways to get them in and out, though getting one's fingers near/on one's eyes is really a mental barrier. The other issue was that my contacts prescription left me still seeing things somewhat blurrily. When I went in for my check-in after a week, I then had them checked out and fortunately, ended up getting a better prescription, albeit not quite as sharp as my glasses, but still sufficient. Anyways, I'm liking them and it's a new look!
