I was. I don’t have any contacts either; can’t get on with them. Resting thin pieces of plastic on top of your retina? Fuckouttahere
Fair enough. And indeed the entire idea of contact lenses just sounds like the most batshit insane mentalness.
But! I've been wearing them every single day for about 25 years and to me they're like some kind of wizardry. They take my genuinely useless eyeballs (something like -11 prescription which is close to legally blind; certainly I'll guarantee its a lot worse than anything most people have experienced) and turns them into 20:20 perfect wonderfulness. It's genuinely incredible.
And! If they did all that while still making it obvious that I had bits of plastic in my eyes, I might still accept that deal. It turns out though that I don't even need to worry about that. Because for about 98% of my life I am literally unaware of them. Which makes no fucking sense! I have bits of plastic IN MY EYES! Why is that not miserable? Why!? No one knows!
So, yeah, it's genuinely inexplicable. But I've had 20:20 vision for the last 20-odd years despite how utterly awful my actual bio eyes are. I'll take it.
