Fresh Eyes Are Needed: Mixed Media Art Journal Layout
When I was younger I had glasses but I never wanted to wear them. Eye wear wasn’t very fashionable when I was in high school. Large frames and metal rims just weren’t on the covers of fashion magazines…not that I read those. Anyone that knows me, knows that I am all about comfort over trends. So, last year I started wearing glasses all the time and I was amazed at all the little details that I could finally see. But since I like comfort, I decided I wanted contacts. My hubby has been wearing contacts for 15 years or so and makes it look so easy to get them in and out. A few months ago, I made the switch.
So, this morning I bolted awake in bed at 6:15 and realized that I had forgotten to take out my contacts last evening. I slept all night with them in! I frantically raced to the bathroom and prayed that I would be able to safely remove them. In college I had a friend that lost part of her cornea due to sleeping with contacts in. The contact fused to her cornea and tore off a piece of her eye when she removed the contact. She had to have surgery and will never be able to wear contacts again.
Thankfully, my contacts came right out without removing pieces of my eye ball. But needless to say, it scared me, so today I am taking a break from contacts.
