I Can See!!

January 31, 2011

It's amazing!  I still cannot believe how clearly I can see now!  I can see so much detail.  Everything looks so sharp and almost thinner.  Regular television looks like High Def used to.  I love my new eyes!!  Scott and the girls love my new glasses too.  They're so sweet.  They give me compliments all the time on how I look with them.  I think they are worried that I feel bad about having to get glasses.  Actually, I am just so thankful I finally listened to Scott and had my eyes checked!!

Now with that being said, it did take until about Sunday for wearing glasses to feel "normal."  Thursday was a little rough with the pupil dilation.  I did not care for that one bit!  It lasted quite a bit longer than the doctor told me to expect.  My favorite part of the dilation were the sweet not so much glasses they gave me to drive with.  I'll need to post a pic of me in those!! LOL!  Plus, my depth perception was off for about 3 days.  I felt as if I was walking around a Fun House.  The floors and walls looked as if they were slightly slanted.  It made me a bit nauseous.  I did have a headache for a few days too, but by Saturday evening it had gone away.  By Sunday, I felt great!  No headaches and no naps!! :-)  It was the first time I hadn't taken a nap in a very long time.  Doc gave me strict instructions to take it easy and limit time on the computer, so very little blogging over the weekend.  I missed seeing what everyone was up to!!  Hopefully, I can get caught up this morning on all my blog reading and commenting!!

I worked a little in my sewing room Sunday.  Those are my new sassy glasses pictured above.  They are kind of a pinky red with some rhinestones on the side.  I think they are stylish, but more importantly...functional!!  Now after seeing what a difference glasses make, I could have the most hideous looking pair and I'd love them too.  My glasses are pictured laying next to a huge pile of trimmings.  I'm trying to finish up January's Le Petite project, "Mon Ami" Schnibbles quilt. There are nearly 300 very small HSTs in this project that need to be squared up!  Good thing I have my glasses now because that for sure would have been a recipe for a headache!  Hopefully, I'll have a finished project to show you tomorrow!

Last, but not least...
 
the new me.

  13. Hey there. Looking good in those pretty and fun glasses! Getting through this eye exam, etc. was not so easy for you, but I am glad you made your way through the process and you are loving your new glasses. The world is a far more spectacular place than you knew, huh?! Now to concur the thimble, lol, just wear it until you forget you have it on your finger and you'll be golden. :-D

  20. You look great! So glad your eyes are fixed. Was this just because you never knew you needed glasses or was there any eye problem?

    Anyway, so glad you got your eyes taken care of. We need to take good care of them:)

    We are getting ready for some snow! LOTS of snow!

    Enjoy your weekend away at lovely Shipshewana! I love that place and Yoder's Department store. Oh the fabric!!!

    Hugs:)

  23. The glasses look terrific on you. Isn't it amazing what a big difference they make once you get use to them. I hated the slanted feeling but once you get through that everything is great. You didn't find any dust bunnies did you?? Tee hee I found dust on the smallest things when I got my glasses.

  24. How adorable!! I love your new set of eyes. I went Friday and got my new prescription, I knew my eyes were worse. Now I need to find time to go look for new frames. It's so hard to pick out frames when you can't see what you look like. UGH!

  25. Wow - you look great in glasses!! Sweet! and the fact that you can see...well, it's all good! By the way, that wool quilt you showed in your last post is very pretty - I want to do a wool quilt one day. o:)

  27. You look really nice with the new specs! I know that fun house feeling as well only thing I get it when I don't wear my glasses, makes me feel 10 feet tall when walking if I am caught outside in the rain and take my glasses off so I can see a bit at least. Looking forward to seeing your Le Petit finished. And am wondering what you have been quilting as well!

  28. Linda, your new glasses look so nice on you. I'm sure you are seeing lots of things you never noticed before. I know! I just squared up my half square triangles for the Mon Ami quilt.

  29. You look great Sis!!! I am glad you are feeling better too!

  30. I love your new glasses - they look very cute on you! I hate getting my eyes dilated, too - takes hours to get back to normal, and you have to wear those flat sunglasses to get home. Those REALLY look stylish! I know what you mean about things seeming slanted - I got progressive bifocals last time and went through that, too. It's nice to be able to see, though! Now you'll really be able to quilt like crazy!

  31. You look great! I like your new glasses, stylish! But the best of all is that now you can see better and no more headaches.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh woww, they really do suit you. Looking wonderful AND no more headaches must be great. There'll be no holding you back now - you'll be piecing and quilting up a storm. Just remember to take them off before you do housework so you don't notice the dust!

  33. You look lovely in your new glasses......very stylish :) Yes, getting your eyes dilated is NOT fun! It seems to take me a while to return to normal too. Now you can see :)

  34. My daughter in law just found out she needs glasses. She failed the vision test for her drivers license. She is not to happy but I am sure she will be able to find some very stylish glasses like you. You look great and I am so glad to hear that you are free of headaches and don't need a nap. When I had to get glasses I felt the same way. It was weird.
