Back in September I wrote about people noticing something different about me and it happened to be that I was wearing my glasses. My problems with my eyes still have not completely gone away and after going to the eye doctor once again last week, I decided it was time to buy new glasses with the right prescription and forget about wearing my contacts at least for now. He actually told me that I shouldn't even try wearing them until summer.
I got my new prescription and went to a national eye care chain-store, who often advertises 2 for $99, and thought that I'd get two pairs just in case my kids grab one and break them or hide them on me. I was very pleased with the glasses until I got home and my wife asked what was wrong with my eyes. I proceeded to go to my parents house and again both my Mom and Dad asked what was wrong with my eyes. I didn't think anything of it as I could see perfectly fine. My wife told me to go look in the mirror and when I did, I saw the problem. I had one clear lens and the other one was a transitional lens that had turned completely dark after being in the sunlight.
Perceptions are sometimes blurry. One may go on not thinking they have a problem, or not even knowing that something is wrong. I am intrigued by Oprah Winfrey's battle with her weight. Did she not know what she was doing? Did no one mention it to her? I am hoping that if I ever slip into my "old" ways of eating that someone close to me will question me and tell me that I have "one black eye."
