Yesterday I had

a weight lift off my shoulders

I went to a new optometrist

My eyesight has gotten progressively worse since I was 11

I worried that I would be blind when I got old

My new optometrist wants to correct my vision

He was patient and understanding and listened

He is taking me off graduated bifocals and giving me single vision lenses…


I am getting new glasses

Rimless with flexible purple wire

Like not having glasses

A weight off my face


1 more week… will post piccy of new ones when I get

The first thing I thought of when I awoke this morning was that

soon I would see properly again


soon others would see me properly

without the big blue frames

Vision is such a ~wonderful~ thing.

I am grateful for it everyday.
