Period of Adjustment

I finally ran out of my old contacts prescription, and yesterday wore my new prescription.

This new prescription is an under-corrected left eye, and a super-corrected right eye. The idea is that I would be able to see far with my right eye, and read close things with my left.

It works, but I’m not used to it yet. Because my left eye was a little blurry, it seemed like there was something in my eye. Or that I was sleepy. It kind of threw me off the whole day.

But I’m going to stick it out. I have read again and again that your vision adapts to the conditions you work with. I fully expect that in no time, I’ll be used to this and not even notice any weirdness.

The right contact is the strongest prescription I have ever worn.

    Wasn’t there some experiment done where people wore glasses that made everything look upside down? Apparently they adjusted to that. However, what you are doing is astonishing to me. All that trickery of the brain – it seems magical!

    Seems ironic for you to try the under over method in the year 2020? I haven’t worn contacts for years because my vision has changed so much. I also have astigmatism so wearing contacts was pushing the limits anyway. Good luck! I admire your persistence. There are some fun glasses frames out there these days…. just in case.
