Seeing Things Clearly

Could it be that my not so secret wish to wear eyeglasses is finally coming true?

Since I was a little girl, I've always wanted to wear glasses. Whenever I pass by an optical store and see the Wide Selection of Eyeglasses on display, I can't help wanting to go inside and try on a few pairs, just for fun. In school, I was envious of other girls who were "blessed" with poor vision that called for glasses. I loved to see the way they the glasses back up on their noses. It fascinated eight year old Mariuca to see those "lucky" four-eyed girls taking off their glasses. They would then proceed to wipe their glasses using a small piece of soft-looking cloth kept in a really cool-looking case. All this made me wondered what it felt like donning glasses and would I feel extra special wearing them!

Now that I'm older and wiser, I am beginning to appreciate the true blessing bestowed upon me with my good vision. When I see B groping for things, blind as a bat without his trusty eyeglasses; I am thankful for my perfect eyesight. I asked him why he doesn't like wearing glasses and he said it's basically an extra part of him that's always in the way, poor baby!peluk

Lately I find myself squinting slightly to read smaller text especially when staring at my laptop screen. I am beginning to get worried that my perfect vision days are over. I can feel the difference and it scares me a little thinking that all the while I've been yearning for glasses, did it make me unappreciative of my good eyesight? Did I bring misery upon myself by hoping and wishing that one day I'd have to wear glasses? I did not truly appreciate my perfect eyesight then and now, what if I really have to wear glasses? Forget about the way I'd look in glasses but would I feel any different from what I'm accustomed to and come to love over the years? Ironically, the one thing I've been wanting all these years is the one thing I am afraid of right now.gigitjari

PS. FC Scoreboard points await my first three commenters, go for it!

I don't wear my glasses anymore, or contacts, it's just uncomfortable..

Ane,  May 09, 2009 10:51 AM

Although my eyesight isn't 20/20 anymore, I don't wear my glasses and at least it's not that bad.. :)

Ane,  May 09, 2009 10:52 AM

I look like a dork in glasses Marzie, not at all a hot nerd.. :-D

Shemah,  May 09, 2009 11:47 AM

Morning Marzie!! Same here!! I used to be envious of others with eyeglasses. I wanted to get one just for fun.. I don't know.. It was just something that I really wanted. LOL! I guess it was just my inner geek that was screaming to rear it's dorky head.

JL,  May 09, 2009 2:34 PM

I'm wearing glasses too. What I can say about it is it's really good to have perfect eyesight. I take out my glasses cannot even see the typing in the screen although it's less than a metre away. Wish I had perfect eyesight again and any glasses I wear are only sunglasses like this 8-) 8-) 8-)

Recent blog post: Friday - updates, pics

Mariuca,  May 09, 2009 3:01 PM

Ayie,  May 12, 2009 2:18 AM

How I wish I have my perfect vision back, had to wear glasses since 4th or 5th grade...can't really remember.

I suggest you get a special computer glasses since it looks like you spend most time facing the monitor. Bad for the eyes! Usually they are referred to as multi-coated. It's such a blessing to have good eyesight, take care of it as early as possible.

Phatelara,  May 13, 2009 12:23 AM

You'll look pretty for sure la if you wear spectacles, GP! But hopefully you won't have to! :)

Phatelara,  May 13, 2009 12:25 AM

I wish I'll get more $$$ so that can go for Lasik and "repair" my eyes! Lol!! I don't really know why I have both short and long-sightedness but the doctor said sejak lahir. I can never go anywhere without my glasses. Blind as a bat is an understatement la for me hehehee...

Mariuca,  May 13, 2009 12:26 AM
