Out with the old-In with the new

So I went to the eye doctor today and received my new and much needed contacts. As some of you may know, I have worn soft contact lenses pretty much my whole life. My vision has been getting a little worse over the years, not sure why..maybe its because i'm getting old! HA I've been seeing the eye doctor for several weeks now and since my vision is changing..the doc asked me if I would be willing to try hard contact lenses. He said they are more healthy for your eyes and with my vision and the problems that I am having, he said it would be for the best. So, I decided to go ahead and order hard lenses.
Going to my appointment today I was feeling a little nervous, anxious and a little excited. I wasn't worried about putting them in...but taking them out had me a little apathetic. Thanks to the kind nurse that sat with me, watching closely as I proceeded to pop the little guys in and out. :) It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be, its just going to take time and patience.
I look forward to seeing things a little more clearly now...
