I was the ‘blind one’ in my family.
The kid who got glasses in fourth grade. Who probably should have had them years before, but faked her way through school eye exams.
The only one in glasses in my family. The only one in glasses in my class.
Over the years, I’ve gotten used to having bad eyesight. To doctors saying I can’t buy certain eyeglasses frames because “your lenses are too thick.” It’s all good.
I can wear contacts, too.
But at my annual checkup this week, my ophthalmologist said my retinas were ‘textbook.’
Take a look.
Aren’t they beautiful?
It’s nice to see one part of my eyes living up to their potential.
