Beyond time to get the depressing news off of my front page.
I've known for several years now that I need glasses. Though at first it was just minor but for about two years I noticed how my vision was declining. Even more so in just the past few months. I didn't go in to the ophthalmologist because I couldn't afford it. But now that I can, I did and of course, I need glasses. I'm not horribly nearsighted, I just can't read some signs and stuff that are in the distance, especially fast food restaurant menus that have back-lighting on white text. The smaller the text the worse it is. The narrower the text the worse it is (I hate street signs sometimes, especially when it's white text on blue background.) What I did find interesting though is that I apparently have astigmatism in just my right eye. Never would have even thought of something like that. Just one eye! Heh. Course my family is weird. Mom has astigmatism in both eyes but is nearsighted like me. Dad has trouble seeing details close up so he might very well be farsighted (he hasn't been to the ophthalmologist for the same reason I hadn't been and for the longest time he was in denial that he couldn't see stuff up close.) So I somehow end up with one relatively normal eye and a whack eye. I haven't worn glasses since a short time when I was a kid to try and treat a wandering eye. Ended up having surgery three times over my childhood to correct the problem and now it's slightly come back in the manner that my eyes are slightly out of alignment; double vision is trippy and annoying.
So yeah, I ordered my Rx yesterday and it'll be about a week before I get them. Haven't decided if I want to do contacts just yet. I need to do more research on them.
Seeing myself in glasses is so weird....
