Rachel's Blog: New Contacts

Thu, 05 Jan 2006

Got myself some contact lenses today - an early birthday present. Hopefully early enough that in a month's time I will have forgotten they were supposed to be a birthday present and get something else too.
So far, so weird. I no longer have a deflector shield between my eyes and hair, so now I know I need a haircut. There's an extra layer over my eyeballs so I keep blinking to try and brush this foreign object out and my brain keeps telling me that I'll have a headache soon because I'm not wearing my glasses.
I'm sure it will all come together soon. After all, I look good now, right?

So is it weird having to (almost) touch your own eyeball? I have to be physically restrained (I kid you not: Lisa kneels on my chest) for eye drops.

Not too weird. I'm okay touching my own eyeballs, but having other people do it is horrible. I think it's because I know it's coming rather than some mysterious object just inside my peripheral vision weilded by another's hand.
Thanks for the visual of Lisa kneeling on your chest. That one's going to stick around!
