It's Gonna Be A Bright, Bright, Sunshiny Day*
I don't really use them, mind you, but I got them nonetheless.
It happened back when I was running a lot and happened to have had an eye appointment and it was really annoying me to have to wear my glasses while running (I don't see distance well and I see less well in the dusk/dark and it's important to be able to see where you're going when you're running and plus I like to see) and so I talked to the optometrist and we decided to try contacts.
He told me that some people wear them every day, or some people just wear them for certain occasions/reasons.
I already figured that since I don't wear my glasses all day (just for driving after dusk or if going somewhere I need to see distances (concert, etc.) I wouldn't wear contacts all day either, but it's pretty cool having them in. (on?)
I won't go into the gong show that is me getting into the habit of putting the lenses in. I out-think myself every time and since I don't wear them often enough to get better at the whole process, it tends to leave me sore and red-eyed and watery, so don't use me as your example of how to put in contacts quite yet.
But when I do put my contacts in, it's the weirdest thing to be able to see everything clearly, without edges or areas of blur.
It's still weird on my brain though, because when I have my glasses on, I can still "extra squint" and improve my vision even more, but it doesn't seem to work with my contacts.
I've stopped running now (physio's order) so I haven't had a reason to use my contacts since C-Dawg and I went to Beer Fest (and I wanted to see all the cute guys from afar.)
So, yeah. There's no real point to this post other than to say I have contacts, I don't wear them much, but they're pretty cool. (And I'm still not used to putting them in and maybe never will be at this rate?)
