I tend to say I'm blind, which is obviously not true at all, and must annoy people who really are in that position. But I have been very short-sighted (-6ish) for a very long time, and now I'm getting long sighted as well. Which is kind of focusing my attention on what I can and can't see. Sometimes I just shrug my shoulders and think of it as another side-effect of being the wrong side of 50. But I'm not dead yet, nor falling apart, so maybe I should do something about my eyes?
When I was young I resisted wearing glasses completely, except for looking at the blackboard, and later, driving the car. Contact lenses changed all that, but I was very careless with them, and on my third pregnancy my eyes rebelled, and my optician told me I'd have to stop wearing them except for special occasions. And that's exactly what I have been doing for the past 13 years. I'm almost used to wearing glasses full-time now, but I still have a love-hate relationship with them.
So what are my options?
