I have been nearsighted my entire life, and when my parents finally allowed to wear contact lenses in middle school, I was happy to leave wearing glasses behind. My parents made me keep glasses in high school, but once I was on my own, I stopped buying them. All was going well until I came down with an eye infection that was not caused by my contact lenses, but it left me unable to wear them for a couple of weeks. My old glasses were no longer my proper prescription. I had to miss work for a few days while I had a new pair of glasses made for me, as I could not see to do anything! I will never be without a good pair of glasses in my current prescription ever again! I created this blog to help others learn from my mistake and share my other tips!
