I am trying to be good and patient, but this is awful! I can see that I probably have improved vision. But I also feel like I am inside a fish bowl, and everything is a little warped. My depth perception is off and seeing things up close is a chore—not a good thing for an avid reader and homeschooling mom who has to read a minimum of 3 hours out loud on school days!
I keep trying to remember how it felt when I first got glasses. I was about nine years old and up until I’d gotten the glasses the concept that one was supposed to see blades of grass or leaves on a tree was unknown to me. I thought you were supposed to just visualize what was on the chalk board at school; I had no idea that chalk actually left visible marks. And I was dizzy. I felt taller; things seemed further away.
So, am I seeing so much better now that I am experiencing all that adjustment again? I don’t know. I don’t think my vision is improved all that much! And frankly, I am not sure the disorienting migraines are even worth being able to see better. I mean, just how well do I need to see the pillow over my face?
How much longer do I have to keep it up to be able to say without a doubt that I will not adjust and I want my old lamer but painless vision back?
