Back in March, I (Cassia) was becoming increasingly frustrated with my eyes being tired. They got tired when I would be driving, tired when I’m reading music, on the computer, and reading a book, it was frustrating and making my attention span short. 🙂
I finally decided I should make an appointment with the eye doctor, and after going I was not happy with the results: Bifocals, and all the timers! 😛 (The eye doctor did explain though that I needed bifocals because of the combination I needed for far and near, not because my eyes have trouble adjusting, which I was happy to hear. 🙂 )
I was pretty upset, getting glasses meant I would look different from all the rest of my siblings. But after much thought, advice from wise people (aka Daddy and Mommy 🙂 ), and prayer, I decided this is what I needed to do. It was either have tired eyes, short attention span all the time, and being frustrated, or having better vision, bigger attention span, and not being so frustrated. The choice was pretty obvious! 😉
Of course I could have gotten contacts, but no thank you!!! I don’t want one more thing to tie me up in the morning, spending extra time trying to get contacts in my eyes. I like how I can just put on my glasses and go. 🙂
Taking two of my fashion experts (Leah and Susannah), with me, I went to pick out frames and to order them…less then a week later they came in and I’ve been wearing them since.
Having them now for about two months, it is nice the difference that they make, 🙂 and I don’t mind so much anymore that I’m the only one of us siblings wearing glasses…or am I?
The next week I (Susannah) made an eye appointment. I have been meaning to make an appointment since November, but kept putting it off. Cause, well, I can see! I have had headaches often for a long time especially after concentrating on various things such as needle craft, reading, driving, playing cello/piano, etc . Maybe eye related? But maybe not. So I thought I’d go to the eye doctor to rule that out (ha ha). I found out that I also needed glasses. Less headaches have been worth it! Way worth it! It’s amazing that I only have about one headache a week now! And….surprise surprise….things are clearer! 😀
Contacts were also a no no for me. I mean, I can barely get eye drops in my eyes! How in the world am I going to get a contact in?! Last year when Daddy tried contacts, he let us play with one he was going to throw away. We tried and tried to get it in our eyes, but it was impossible! 🙂
I’ve adjusted to the glasses much faster than I thought I would. One thing I am still trying to remember is that I can’t just reach up and rub my eyes/forehead. Something is in the way 🙂
The most two annoying things about them are they get dirty so fast! And the glare. I guess I’ll get used to that 🙂
So now…we match! 🙂
