My Eye Correction Story
In my junior year of high school, my teacher passed out a survey. One of the questions on the survey was: Do you think that teachers write too small on the overhead? I was the only one in my entire class of more than 30 people to answer yes. It seemed pretty clear to me what I needed.
Within a matter of months, I was wearing glasses. I was so used to being unable to see clearly, that I almost forgot what it was like to see life in focus. All of the sudden, I could read what teachers wrote on the board, I could see individual leaves on trees, and I could actually read traffic signs!
One year later, however, my glasses broke. By that time, I realized that I was ready to switch to contacts. I did not like the way I looked in glasses, and it was annoying to have to take them off every time I went to play basketball or other sports. I saw this breaking of the glasses as an opportunity to get contacts. I made the change and I have been wearing contacts ever since.
