Drunk or Blind

I had to wear my glasses today as I went to my Lasik Consultation. I've mentioned before how much I hate them. That still hasn't changed.

After the appointment, I had errands to run and another appointment, so I didn't have time to put my contacts back in.

While at the mall, I found myself stumbling on my steps, side swiping things, tripping over the stairs, and needing extra time to find my place on the escalator. I was just all out of sorts!

I think the worst was when I didn't see the curb to stepdown, and fell.

The prescription is less than a year it's not that. It's the fact that I can see shit peripherally.

Then, while driving, I would "see" things out of the corner of my eye....a light, a reflection off something, that would make me feel like a car was right next to me, I was running into something or someone was coming at me. Same thing when I came home. I found myself and one point jump into a defense stance as I could have sworn I saw someone out of the corner of my eye.

So needless to say, I am anxiously awaiting this surgery.

I'll have to wear my glasses for 3 days before my full exam and then for a couple of weeks before the surgery. That's if I make it to the surgery with the way I'm running into things!

By the time you can wear your contacts again, you will probably be used to it.

I started wearing my glasses a few months back since my contacts were bothering me. For about a week I freaked out like you, tripped, and saw things that made me jump.

I really need to get to the doctor to get new contacts, but I am fine now.
