A week ago I woke up with a new friend. I don’t really need a new friend to be honest. I already have a friend called “tinnitus” – woke up with her 8 years ago. She’s really annoying. My new friend is like a one-eyed-smiley-face “floater” in my eye. She’s super annoying. Follows me everywhere I look. Right. Left. Up. Down. She moves quick. If she was a fast car I’ld be impressed with her speed. But she’s not and I’m not!
I’ve seen an ophthalmologist and nothing horrible is going on with my new friend. I have a follow up next week as well. And then today happened.. I put my contact lens in, dash to the grocery store for some stuff, get into all those brightly lit aisles with colorful tins and packages and they are all a bit blurry. Finish my shopping. Get home. Start baking and realize I can’t really read the recipe card all that well. Close my left eye. That looks better!
Open my left eye. BLURRY! Not just a little blurry, but BIG BLURRY!! OH NO – I’m going blind! My friend is causing me grief. OH NO!! This is horrible. I already can’t hear and now I’m going blind in one eye.
Might as well take my contact lens out I say to myself… I take it out and everything is peachy keen. Wait!! What?? What is that? Seriously?? I look down in the palm of my hand and I have 2 contact lenses there.
Turns out that 2 contacts in one eye does not result in double perfect vision.
The good news is I’m not going blind today!
The bad news is I’ve apparently forgotten how to count and separate my right from my left 😎
