I did it!!!!!

No more glasses for me!!!!! I got contacts today!!!!!

You might be saying/thinking "big deal Dee"

Well let me tell you........this was my 3rd attempt to get fitted!!!! I chickened out the last three times!!!! My eye Dr. wanted me to take them out and put them in not once but TWICE before I could get them.

The 1st time last year I just didn't even try!!!!
The 2nd time I didn't go to the appointment
Today I went in for my eye exam and she pushed.I mean persuaded me to try......

Dr. Joe: just try while you're here. Your vision has not changed from last year. I will give you two different kind and in 1 month come back and tell me which you like better.

Me: uuhhhh o.k I guess...

Dr.Joe: c'mon you can do it....(walking out to get contacts)

Me: Dee you can do this.....

She comes in puts them in and sends me to the room with the tech. He gives me a bunch of stuff. I sit down and I must take them out and put them in again.........this guy is so sweet and relaxed. I have to send him a starbucks card....he was very nice. I would have been like "look lady......I have other people to see" LOL After 30 minutes........I completed my mission and I was off with my cute lil bag of goodies!!!!

I have only had glasses for 3 years now............I'm sick of them!!!! I miss being able to wear cute lil sun glasses. My glasses are ALWAYS dirty!!! You can't really see my eye makeup the RARE times I decide to try and be ultra sexxxy. I forget my glasses ALL.THE.TIME. I sit on them and lay on them..........................NO MORE!!!!

Now if I could get past this feeling like they are moving or going to pop out or sumthin is in my eye.........LOL

I'm so proud of me!!!! Let me run out and get me some MAC eye shadows!!!!!

Congratulations! I've only tried once, but I think about trying contacts everytime I get new glasses. I've been wearing my glasses since '98 so they don't bother me as much as they used to.

Good for you! I've been wearing contacts for more than 20 years and I would never go back to glasses. When I used to wear glasses I always took them off before going to the club. People used to say to me, "How can you see?" I would answer: "I'm not here to see -- I'm here to be seen!"

Dee, I wish I could get contacts but I get too much cold in my eyes due to allergies.

I was wondering about laser eye surgery but I am scared as hell. I know only one person who had it done,she paid $4000 cause her eyes were really bad. I am like whoa, then I wonder if the surgery will have side affects years later.

I am leery off the surgical fads so I am not going there. I feel ya on the glasses thing. I have had mine for like 6 years and I get tired of having to clean them. I hate that I cannot see when I go swimming. I wish too I could wear cute summer glasses.

Girl, funny though how folks make assumptions about people who wear glasses. Have you had guys intrigued with you cause you had glasses?

Congrats on the new contacts, I have not yet decided to try them yet. I would love to wear them but dont think I could put them in and take them out. I may try it for my next exam. If it takes me over 10 minutes Im giving up b/c I am never on time and not being to put contacts in would only make it worse.

You need to post some pictures.

Congrats on conquering the contact lenses fear. I really only need my glasses for driving or to see things far away. But I'm afraid to wear the contacts, since a co-worker's daughter made a mistake and scratched her cornea with the contact lens and her eye became infected. That alone kept me with the glasses. But every now and then I think about getting contacts.

Yeah!!!! LOL Girl, I haven't done this yet. I want to, though. I have so many fly azz shades I like to wear, and can't! Sometimes, though, I say forget it and wear them anyway. LOL I can't see worth shit, but I'm still fly. LMAOOOOO
