Before I turned 20 I had perfect vision. Looking back on it now, I completely took it for granted. It was after my first son was born 7 years ago that was driving my car and ended up on the curb without realizing it ( Don't worry no one was hurt). So I got my vision tested. It turns out having babies can effect your vision greatly, why I do not know until today. The doctor gave me a pair of glasses at the time and I began wearing them for driving and when watching movies etc. It was only a couple of years ago that I started feeling like I needed them more consistently throughout the day when trying to see something further away. The doctor recommended I wear lenses so I tried them and fell in love with the simplicity of it. I've never had any trouble with them in all of my years of lens wearing until this year. In the past few months, I have gotten back to back eye infections which are extremely irritating to me because I end up stuck in glasses for weeks at a time, administering drops twice a day in hopes of eradicating the infection only to end up with one again a few days later. I recently found a new eye doctor who I love (Thank you Dr. Shipper!). She walks me through everything and patiently explains all of the answers to my questions. My original prescription recently changed as well, this may have something to do with the birth of my second child almost 2 years ago, but I wouldn't know. I had an old pair of frames I would use at home when watching something in bed or driving carpool in the morning and they were so worn out that they were starting to slip down my nose, irritate me behind my ears and just weren't very in style at all anymore to say the least. Once we settled on my new prescription Dr. Shipper helped me select the perfect pair of glasses to suit my face. I tried dozens of pairs and ended up with two I really loved. I came to a decision to go for an aviator shaped grey/blue pair ("Dark Denim" although to me their a charcoal grey) by Penguin called "The Princeton." I love their shape and how they are slightly over sized and a bit more round while not overwhelming my small eyes or causing my face to appear overly round. They are extremely comfortable too. I've begun wearing them daily until I can start up with lenses again. Hopefully I can find a solution to these eye infections fast. I've thought about doing laser eye surgery many times and I still plan to do a consultation at some point, but I'm not going to say that procedure doesn't scare me a little bit- it certainly does! I would just love to wake up in the morning and not think about putting in lenses or glasses, just walk out the door and see perfectly again. If any of you have experienced eye infections or laser surgery please do leave your tips, tricks, advice and words of wisdom in the comments below because I can certainly use some help right now.
