Lost My Contact Lens
Wednesday, August 19, 2009
I don't wear my contacts very often - mostly stick to my glasses. I was wearing the contacts last night, prepared to stay up late after sleeping late. My laptop decided to restart itself about 02, so I just turned it off and went to sleep. Morning came and I reached for my glasses, realizing then I could see at a distance without it being blurred. Oops! Pulled out the left one (distance) and tried to get the right one out (close up). Poked my eye a few times without success, then went to the bathroom to look into the mirror. The contacts were a deep blue - my eyes were my normal hazel color. Where was the 2d contact? Rinsed my eyes with a lubricating solution, and took the dogs outside.
When I got back inside, my eyes were irritated and I had red streaks on my face from the drops. I checked by putting a couple of drops on the inside of my elbow - yep, got red and itchy. Makes me wonder if, back in Dec when I was diagnosed as having pink eye - maybe it was the drops. I was wearing my contacts the week before. If my eyes burned, I probably put in more drops - made them burn, repeat. Hmmm.
Went to the gym this afternoon - did 3.5 miles on the treadmill, then the strength circuit. Goofed and put the weights at 40 for everything - I was supposed to put them at 30 for the arm stuff. I thought I was whimping out!
