Failing Vision Bitter Friday Giftures

I’m pretty bitter about my vision. You see, from about my sophomore year in high school until I was 33, I wore glasses. I tried contacts once, but I wasn’t a fan of sticking things in my eye and lost the desire for them really fast. Then, as a gift for me living and taking care of my mother-in-law for 10 years, she decided to pay for me to get Lasik. I was free from contacts and glasses and people were weirded out by my glasses being gone.

I was free for life from the bitteracities of glasses. Except….they warned me of this little caveat that I mostly ignored at the time, because yeah, I was free! They said there was this little thing called presbyopia. It occurs with EVERYONE starting at the age of 40. You start losing your close up vision IE reading stuff.

After fighting it for most of my 40’s I’m finally at a point where I have to have reading glasses and man am I bitter about it. Don’t worry though, because my looking vision isn’t the only vision I’ve lost. I’ve also lost my vision of the future. I used to be able to read people’s thoughts, but ever since I lost my vision, I’ve lost my vision.

I guess it is time to put me in a nursing home where I’m forced to play video games all day and have a nurse bring me food…please don’t do that to me…that would be awful…

Here are some Bitter Friday Giftures to explain what other ways I’m losing my vision…

Here is how I have to squint…

The bad thing about horrible vision is that you can’t see things clearly anymore. The good thing about horrible vision is that you don’t have to see things anymore. Hey maybe it won’t be half bad.

  1. As someone who has worn glasses since the 2nd grade, is unable to wear contacts and can’t afford Lasik…welllll, I understand your bitterness, but can’t feel a ton of sympathy. I hope you understand. I have glasses and still squint at times, so there you go.
