Sometimes Reality Sucks

When I left Philippines, my vision was still very good although I am not sure if it was still 20-20. Couple of years after I arrived here (United States), I just realized that my vision slowly deteriorate. It truly hits me when I went to the DMV to get my driver license and I wasn't able to pass the eye exam and was told to go to my eye doctor to have an eye exam.

Since then, I need eyeglasses to see far clearly. Whenever, I use the computer either at work or home, I need to use large font so I can comfortably work without wearing my eyeglasses. When hubby realized with what I am doing, he suggested that we need to change our desktop computer's monitor to a bigger screen so that I can still see everything while comfortable sitting at a good distance from the computer. I was very happy to hear about it. With the wide selections of monitors available in the market today, we had a hard time deciding what to get but after several brainstorming sessions we finally buy one.

I know, call me stubborn but I don't want to wear my eyeglasses all the time. I don't think I am still in denial of my situation. I think it is more of being uncomfortable while wearing it. Last year, I tried wearing contacts for 2 weeks but didn't like it. Just couple of days ago, I went back to my doctor and asked to be prescribed with contacts. I am still adjusting to it especially getting used in putting the contacts in my eyes and having it in my eyes for hours. Hopefully, this will work at this time because I am more comfortable wearing it. Otherwise, I will just go back to using my eyeglasses whenever I needed to wear corrective lenses.
