I can see.

by Lauren | Celiac Teen on June 25, 2008

Awesome.  That’s how I feel today.  Summer is basically here, it’s warm, and, best of all, I got my new glasses!!  Ok, so maybe that’s not the most exciting news, but since I haven’t had a new prescription in 2 years (I never had time to get them updated last year), this is wonderful.  If you have ever gotten new glasses, you know what I mean, especially when your prescription changes a lot.

This may sound cliche, but I can see the individual leaves on the trees, not just green blob-esque things on brown sticks.  Mom summed this feeling up best.  It’s like everything is in HD.  HD is how things are supposed to be, not a almost blurry, unfocused mess.  The only big problem is that EVERYTHING is so clear, and with that, at least for the first little while, everything feels funny.  As soon as I came out of the optometrists, I felt a foot taller, simply because everything was so unbelievably clear.  

I really don’t mind that everything feels different, even though it’s kind of annoying.  I don’t mind because I can actually see.  I can look up and read the clock, I can see everything with perfect clarity, I can see each leaf on each tree.  For that, I am thankful, and I will wait a few days to feel completely normal, if being able to see is what I get in return.
