Some of you may remember last November when I was convinced my eyesight was failing. For 2 weeks things were blurry and just out of focus. Finally, I made an appt with Dr. Ira Tucker, my awesome optometrist. He fit me in for an emergency appt. I was honestly worried that I was going blind.
I explained the symptoms to him. He looked at my eyes with his little machine for about 10 seconds before nodding his head saying, "I thought so." I had been wearing my lenses in the wrong eyes for 2 weeks. Normally this wouldn't have caused that much of a difference since my prescriptions are fairly close but my left lens is a toric to correct for astigmatism which made my right eye go all weird and my left eye's prescription is slightly stronger so it wasn't able to really see clearly either. I've been wearing lenses since I was 13 years old and I had NEVER done that before.
That brings me to last night. I was in a rush getting ready for bed and managed to drop my lens case on the floor. I picked it up but apparently didn't look at it close enough because I must have turned it around before putting my lenses in the baskets. When I got up this morning, I popped my lenses in and off I went. I had a feeling that something was off and my vision was blurry again. I got about 1/2 way through the day when it dawned on me that I may have switched my lenses again. You'd think I'd take a few minutes to correct that situation but alas, no. I put up with it all day and when I got ready for bed tonight, I did remember to check for the line on the toric lens. It was, indeed in my right eye. *sigh* At least I was able to self diagnose and treat this time!
