I have contacts. Er, a contact, because my right eye is so astigmatic that the doctor said I was right for not wearing a prescription in it for the last ten years. It wouldn't do any good, and would probably give me double vision to wear the "correct" prescription.

I'm getting coloured ones, so I'll have a "blank" contact for my right eye, when the colours come in. For rightnow, though, I have a trial clear contact in my left eye, and it's... Bizarre.

I haven't worn them since high school, and it just feels *wrong*. Oh, not the contact itself; that's perfectly comfortable. But the not having my glasses on. I feel every time I look at something like I shouldn't be able to focus on it, even though I can. Plus I'm not sure I can see as well with the contact as with my old glasses, but there's no real way to test that. Can't just whip the contact out, put the glasses on, back/forth, better like this or better like this. Too much eye-watering and such, so there's no real immediate test.

But it's odd. Seeing things I shouldn't be able to see. I feel like I should be stumbling around half blind, because there's no familiar weight on my nose. Like I'm conditioned to it.

(I have a new pair of glasses on order too, because I'm not dealing with the contacts crap *all* the time, and I think I look better in glasses anyway. Th contacts are pretty much just a "Hey, I'm a grown up, I have my own job, let's do a vanity thing for once." deal.)
