Glasses are nice for reading and seeing, but that marks the end of the pros list about them; the cons are infinite.

The optometrist gave me a year supply of contacts, and that supply lasted eight months. Unless I can find the contacts I’ve lost or get new ones at full (without insurance discount) price, I’m stuck being called four eyes and Harry Potter for four months.

At the end of the day I have swim practice and since nobody has created goggles to go over your glasses I’m stuck swimming blind. My coach writes the workout on a dry erase board and five feet is too far for me to even recognize writing on the board, so I don’t know what we’re swimming. The clock we use to swim on intervals is even farther away, so I don’t know when to start swimming. Also, I’m nearsighted, so I can see the clarity of the water droplets that fall three inches away from me, but seeing other swimmers in my lane is a doozy.

That is why I will be accepting contact donations. If interested, please email me at [email protected]
