In which I lament my awful eyesight.

If you're a regular reader of my blog you've probably heard me moaning about my eyesight. If not, here’s a quick update – it’s TERRIBLE.

I started wearing glasses when I was around 15 or 16, and since then it’s been a tumultuous journey downhill.

At first, I only ever needed glasses at school, to read the board if I was sat near the back, or if I went to the cinema. Seven years later and I’m finding myself squinting to read subtitles on the TV, and genuinely having to ask people the time at work because I can’t read the little numbers on the clock.

I suppose I only have myself to blame. As a teenager I was overly stubborn about wearing my glasses when I needed too. Luckily I’ve gotton over that vanity now, but it’s still SO annoying when I realise I‘ve left them in the car, or at home when I really need them on my face.

I have considered lenses so many times before, but I can’t get over the horrible feeling of having to put something in your eye every morning. Laser surgery might be an option when I win the lottery, but even then I get shudders thinking about letting someone poke around my eyeballs.

Until then, I might invest in one of those glasses chains, so  I never leave mine in a stupid place again.
If you struggle with your eyesight like me, Optical Express has a great choice of Glasses, Lenses and also offers treatment for eye issues like Optical ExpressCataract Treatment


  1. Ech, totally feel your pain on this. I'm pretty much blind without my lenses. But I'd totally recommend soft contact lenses - I've been wearing them every day for almost 11 years with no problems, and sticking your finger in your eyes loses is ick-factor after the third day or so!

  2. I've been wearing glasses since I was 11! So far, it's not that bad as I only need them when I use the computer or in class... but I'm hoping to invest in contact lens but am a bit scared about putting them in/taking them out :P
