Ah to see again...well....soon

So I've been having serious issues with my eyes of fact...its now been nearly 3 weeks since I've had my contacts in. And I HATE wearing my glasses.....always have..not because of their serious coke bottle lenses...but because my vision is so bad I don't like the correction glasses provide as opposed to contacts. And thus far I've not been considered a LASIK candidate as my vision isn't "stable". So the last few weeks of constant glasses wearing has been particularly stressful....especially when it comes to things like oh...DRIVING!

So I finally got into the eye dr my whole office sees today. The good news is...he thinks my problem is just deposits on my lenses...not due to how I care for them...but because they are nearly 5 years old and it happens! My prescription has changed some....but just slightly they say. So....he thinks with new contacts I'll be good to go. That said, he said my current lenses FIT so well (I wear Rigid Gas Perm for all you contact experts out there) that he doesn't want to start from they're trying to track down my records. But I'm not hopeful since all I had to tell them was the last dr I saw was at the Costco in Concord, CA....and the girl at the counter was like..."I guess I can call information???" Hopefully I'm wrong and it will be a snap...and we'll have new contacts on order in no time... And they did clean my lenses with a stronger enzyme than what I can get at home....and he said that might make them okay to wear for a few more weeks if I want to try.

In the meantime...I do have new prescription for my right eye is WAY off from my current glasses...and will be headed out on a mission shortly to see who in my area sells Coach frames (the optical shop at the dr did not). And if they don't then I need someone to measure my "pupil depth" so I can order from or someplace like them. Because lets face can I NOT get Coach frames as big a collector as I am? And they're all damn cute anyway.... In of the TWO ads in this months Marie Claire featured a girl with coach eyeglasses on her nose and sunglasses on her head!

Oh yeah....and my eyes are still I can't see all that great and have a splitting headache from the light...even though I have my sunglasses on over my glasses and a hat on. Fun stuff!

Oh yeah...and my vision blows....just today's exam exceeded the $150 I get to spend on routine vision exam, lenses, etc every two years. And I still need to buy the glasses and contacts!

But really soon I'll be able to see again!!!!!
