AstigmaWHAT?

Guess who's wearing their stupid glasses again?


I hate wearing glasses SO HARD, and as someone who has terrible eyesight, and has worn glasses since the 5th grade, the whole idea of wearing fake glasses just to wear them is, in my opinion, UTTERLY RIDICULOUS. 


Believe me, if I could get rid of them, I would. Sadly, I am not a candidate for Lasik because my corneas are too thin. BLARGH. I don't know if what I'm dealing with right now is allergies (methinks it is), but they feel CONSTANTLY like there is sand in them. Hence the wearing of the glasses (and the non-wearing of the contacts). 


Here's hoping the doc figures it out so I can go back to wearing my contacts again without looking like I have spent the past several days smoking weed and subsisting on Bugles, Ding Dongs, Corn Nuts, Slim Jims, and Mountain Dew.


Cuz guess what? Not only am I not a candidate for Lasik, I have to wear gas permeable contacts. My stupid astigmatism is too severe to wear soft contacts. Sheesh - I betcha didn't think you were coming to my blog today for a whine-fest about my eyeballs, did you? 


That's how I roll. There's no fancy schmancy blog-sponsorship celebrations here at MBB, folks. No champagne and confetti-filled soirees with Louboutins and Louis Vuitton. Nope. I like to keep it real with dry, tired eyes, astigmatism, and the occasional poop story. YOU'RE WELCOME.

Sweater/pants: JC Penny - did I mention each one was FOUR DOLLAH. See? NOT fancy.
Shoes: Kohl's
Long Necklace/Bracelet: F21
Belt as Bracelet: Target
Short Necklace: TJ Maxx
Earrings: Laguna street vendor

Merci,
Shan

This may not help, but I think you look adorable in glasses. Also, you're looking particularly sparkly today. Shimmer lotion? Pixie dust? Did the kids spill glitter on you? That peachy/pink color is killer with your complexion, btw.

Ahhhh, thanks mama. Your check is in the mail. The sparkle is courtesy of my self-tanner (Loreal Sublime Bronze - it's a gel, and the only one that doesn't stink to high heavens like a lot of tanners). Yeah, I scored big time with that sweater - $4 to make you hollah, espesh in that color - self-deprecating I may be, but I DO know that color looks good on me. I will just pretend you didn't make that comment about the g-l-a-s-s-e-s.

I have astigmatism too, and used to wear gas permeables, but now I guess torics are good enough that I can wear them. I thought I had bad astigmatism, but maybe not as bad as yours.

But I also HATE wearing my glasses, even though they're kind of cute. Just wearing them makes me feel sloppy and gross.

I think I tried torics this time last year, and they would not maintain my vision. It was like wearing my glasses for extended periods of time - the longer I wore them, the worse my vision became. Maybe I should try them again this year. I feel you on the sloppy and gross thing though - I am the same way!

I too hate the wearing of fake glasses. Makes me crazy. I am also not a Lasik candidate and that sucks. I'm at the point in my contact lens wearing life where I'm restricted on the kinds of lenses I can wear because a lot of companies don't make a strong enough lens for me. I'm just that blind. And I have to wear my glasses at least one day a week because of vascular issues. Wow, all this vision correction talk is so sexy - lol!

Just another way to accessorize!

You look beautiful. I want to have a Lasik Eye Surgery For Astigmatism.The Scenario is repeated thousands of times every day around the world, making LASIK one of the most popular elective procedures performed on the human body in the world. So how can so many doctors say that LASIK is safe and effective? Thanks for sharing. Keep exploring.
