Tomorrow is a big day. I am having LASER Eye Surgery at @london_vision_clinic !
Here comes the dedicated nailart for the special occasion with the blue doors that I've walked in couple of weeks ago and my life is about to change forever.
I had a friend who wore glasses at school in my first ever month at being a first grader. While we were having a disagreement on something silly, I teased her for wearing glasses and I said 'you four-eyes'! (I know I was so mean!!) I have never gotten over that day.
Then things took a turn and I realised I couldn't see the blackboard. I was so gutted and scared with the thought of wearing glasses(and the possibility of my nickname being four-eyes) that I've kept it a secret. I used to pretend sharpening my pencil which was next to the board and memorise everything written on it then I would copy it back onto my book.
To be honest I don't even remember seeing anything clearly ever before that.
I was almost 8 when my dearest sister told my mum that I was squinting to see things. My mum took me to an eye doctor and there started my journey with glasses.
I was embarrassed, never felt pretty, was hiding in my own shell for years and years when I wore them. I was rebellious during my teenage years and refused to wear them. I would get lost, not recognise friends, many a time I was to get run over by a car due to my blurry vision. I would look like a fish when I was posing for photos as I wouldn't see where the camera lenses were. I hated every minute of not being able to see.
My first year of high school was magical. I was introduced to monthly contact lenses. They were amazing! I wore them day and night. I was studying at a boarding school so I didn't have anyone telling me to wash my hands prior to putting my contacts on. I would take them off in the middle of the class and put them back on to show off without taking any hygienic action. I would even wash them with tap water if they fell on the floor-yuck(I sure feel lucky that I haven't gone blind then!) I've been wearing Dailies for about 5 years now and it is kinda OK apart from the fact that unfortunately I can't swim in them and we are living in ....
