Today’s the Day!

Today’s the very day I received my glasses.

I ended up knowing truly how blurry my normal vision is. Apparently, it’s really bad. I’m very near-sighted, and I mean VERY. My eye damage could’ve been prevented so much earlier..

Apparently the $65 was for the down payment to have it processed ASAP, I’d guess. Ended up with my glasses swiftly, and another $65 had to be paid for. Expensive, but mandatory. Wouldn’t have been this bad if I was given that care in Jr. High. I was literally told school was more important than me, to my very face. Of course I’m left sour with school and that.

Regardless, here’s what I’ve got!

So, how bad is my eyesight by default/ Near-up front, it ain’t bad. But, anything that’s a little further, it gets worse and worse. I can’t even see the detail on leaves properly.

It made me realize how impacting it’d be, and to some extent, left me depressed knowing my eyes are this bad. I have to rely on glasses for the rest of my life.

I looked at some older pictures, and my dog ended up being the perfect example of my eyes.

Phew.

I’m trying to get used to it as soon as I can, but it’s difficult. Tired eyes, dizziness, light headaches, temporary blindness when removing them. It’s tough.

But… it feels amazing to see the clear signs and the pavement below me. I can see anything and everything. It feels.. good.

I spent my whole day trying to adjust to them. I’ve made progress, but I’m not sure how long it’ll last/how good the progress is, the only real way to tell is to sleep and wake up.

Longer term use ended up with longer after-blindness, which annoyed me because I wanted to try jogging home from the last few steps, but couldn’t due to head hurting.

Well, I do need to train my eyes to adjust faster with putting them on and taking them off, anyways.

Phew.
