I wore my contacts on Friday, which I only usually wear on special occasions. Three years ago I got an eye infection so severe that I almost lost my eyesight. So I chucked away my vanity and decided my eyesight was more important than trying to look good. I actually have gotten really used to wearing my glasses everyday & the pair I wear is really cute. I also had some Gucci sunglasses that I LOVE turned into prescription sunglasses. So I'm pretty much set.
(I've had this pair forever)
On special occasions however I still wear contacts. I'm usually fine as long as I put a brand new pair in, but I didn't have a new pair, so I grabbed an old pair, cleaned them & popped them in.
Six hours later, I took them out & knew instantly both of my eyes were infected. I laid awake all night in pain (felt like someone was scratching their nails on my eyeballs). When I woke up I had to go to the ER. I couldn't even open my eyes. All day yesterday, I laid awake in bed with my eyes closed (TORTURE).
Today I'm doing a little better, although I'm writing this with my sunglasses on (light still hurts them). I also can't go outside today because it's too bright & windy, but at least I'm able to open them (count your blessings, right?)
I wonder if I will ever learn?
So, if any of my friends who read my blog see me out & about without my glasses on, PLEASE yell at me & tell me to go home immediately & put them on!
