I Wear Contacts

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 59 People

    I'm legally blind. I have all sorts of problems

    with my eyes, I've got astigmatism and amblyopia, and since my eyes are blue they are very sensitive to sunlight (which I don't like much anyway). I am so glad I still can see because if I couldn't, a lot of joy would definitely be stolen from my life.

    I don't just wear any contacts.

    I got glasses when i was nine. i never looked good in them, i was pretty ugly actually, but my parents wouldn't let me get contacts untill this summer! now i am very happy, even though at first they were really hard to get in and out.

    but reading and typing, no way. If I take them out, I can read and spell just fine. I just want to apologize for all my typos because I try to catch them and it probably makes me look dumb that I can't spell.. But really, I just need better contacts.

    One time I fell asleep with them on (I don't

    know how I forgot to take them out) and I woke up the next morning with the ability to see (my vision is really really bad) and I was thinking in my half asleep faze "MY EYES!!! THEY'RE CURED!!!!" And then I realized my contacts were in my eyes still.......

    Viewing The Future Through Childhood Eyes

    I was around 11 when I started wearing glasses but I had known a couple of years before that it was going to happen but I hid it. My school work suffered but I have to say the course of my academic life was not changed by it, below average to slightly below below average. I...
