I can't see. No, really. I'm as blind as a bat. Probably more than a bat. Probably more like a bat whose eyes have been removed.
Terrible eyesight runs in my family (although mine is the worst at a -9.50). Since nearly everyone in my family has had Lasik eye surgery and has loved it, I decided I would finally do it. Oh, but guess what! Remember how I am as blind as a bat with no eyes? Lasik won't work for me. Go figure.
Instead, my doctor told me I could get something done called Visian ICL (Implantable Collamer Lens), where they insert a cool lens into your eye. Which is HD (high definition). And has UV protection. I will soon have bionic eyes!! Maybe I should ask if they could put x-ray vision in there, as well...
Anyway, in preparation for this procedure, I was told that I need to go without contacts for the next 3-4 weeks. To give you an idea of what the next 3-4 weeks of my life will look like, I will use a picture of my dog.
As you all know, this is my dog, Madison. (Woof.)
1. This is how I see Madison with contacts.
2. This is how I see (or don't see) Madison without contacts or glasses.
Yes, I promise there is still a dog there.
3. This is how I see (AND don't see) Madison with my glasses.
Here I am, with glasses.
(I apologize for any hint of a duck face.
I just feel awkward when taking selfies.)
(a) There is no solution. I have to tough it out. Helloooo blurry world.
(b) I have discovered that Casey's glasses are a -1.00 prescription... so if I put them over mine, I can see quite a bit better! I do this when I drive, so I'm not as much of a danger to those around me. Just call me "Six-Eyed-Sally."
(Another awkward selfie facial expression...)
(c) I have been drinking lots of Diet Coke to cope with my headache.
(d) Take my glasses off so everything is at least the same amount of blurriness?
These next 3-4 weeks are going to be so much fun.

And she gave me a sweet present for my birthday. Gosh, I love her.
And the countdown to perfect vision begins!! Huzzah!
