Friday morning I was trained to put in my new contact lens--a hard lens, one that will reshape my eye while I sleep and obviate the need for glasses or contacts the next day. Thirty-plus years of looking up when putting in a contact lens must be discarded, I now have to look directly at it as I poke it into my eye.
So I put it in Friday evening. Saturday morning, when I took it out, I could see. At my appointment a couple hours later my doctor told me that we'd achieved 75% of the correction we'd planned on in just that one night. This leads us to hope that perhaps, in time, my vision will be good for perhaps 2 days at a time before I'll need to put the lens back in again.
I was a little emotionally overwhelmed Saturday morning when I could see so clearly. It was more than I expected, especially after only one night, when for others it can take a week.
It makes me so...happy.
