made the decision yesterday that I really needed to get my eyes checked out and start worrying about my well being. I made a few calls this morning and started doing some research on other things I need to do, will be going under on June 15 for some test, I know I will need some work done, have dreaded this and have left it alone for quite a few years, It Is Time! first thing is first, getting my eyes checked, have been running around all of town with my little brother driving me around checking who has the best price for a contact exam, because it turns out it is cheaper and more reliable for me to get contacts and later on get a pair of glasses.

arrived at my first destination where I went sporadically went the other day just to get some info and start my research for finding the best place but was an epic failure, I did not pay close attention to the time of operations and was closed for the day. went to the store, and spent a little time there and went to another and another and another place etc, was getting frustrated and decided to use a life line and phone my parents, was given further instructions to go to a place that was near by our home, when we arrived I sort of, kind of rushed in because was told they stop taking walk-ins at 4:30 (because they closed at 5) and it was already 4:15.

filled out the paper work and continued to get checked out (vision, measurements, etc.) and sat back down in anticipation, the doctor called and got up and what felt like the longest walk of my life actually did. I was scared to know what had changed in about 6 years from my last visit of Junior year of High School. turns out there was a slight change, nothing dramatic or drastic but just enough for new prescription. which I think was okay because I needed it. while there the optometrist asked me if I would like to have my eyes dilated for further examination of my eyes, said sure, might as well and carried on with the procedure.

from that moment on, he mention to me that I wold lose vision for the next 3 hours or so, accepted the repercussions and let him continue. everything turned out to be undamaged and perfectly healthy. which was a HUGE surprise to me. “were done!” said the doctor, the technician will give you your trial pair and return for a check up and update and we will give you your 2 boxes of contacts. told him thank you and went on my way up to the front, with some help. forgot my sunglasses in the truck and had to borrow my brothers until we got to the truck (very helpful and kind but oddly strange)…

I went home and could not see, even if my life depended on it, I saw everything fuzzy and unclear with the bright sun blaring down on my eyes, felt very venerable. got home and stayed in the dark trying to recover, doing that helped a bit but got a headache and felt a little like light torture. some time passed and vision came back but pupils were still HUGE, had to continue to wear my sunglasses everywhere and it was funny. joined my aunt to the store without my sunglasses and didn’t know that my eyes were still black as night (hahahahaha) after this long of recovering.

when I arrived home my eyes are slowly being unblack and turning back to their original light brown color. I am here now writing this wearing my sunglasses because the headache is back and need to let my eyes rest from light. in conclusion, going to a professional is not always a bad and scary thing, I know we all expect to hear the worst but at most times it is a good to hear good news (medically speaking). that was my adventure for the day, how was your day?!

good things happening O_o
