Today has been a day I have been dreading for a long time. Today I went and picked up my new glasses. My new contacts are not in yet.
I can see clearer that is for sure. Theses are bifocals so that in itself is something I have to get used to. What is hard is my depth perception is off. That will straighten out with time. What will not straighten out is everything is curved like I am looking thru a fisheye lens. Another thing that will not change is the size of things. Nothing looks the same, everything is smaller. It is not actually smaller. Something that looks like it is 6 inches long is really closer to 8. I have zero peripheral My computer screen is smaller and curved. I do not know if I will be able to do this. I have not choice, it is learn to live with it or go blind sooner.
I was walking thru the store and I just wanted to cry. I never thought that I would have to see things this way again. I had forgotten.
