Very, VERY relieved. After a second visit to the doctor it turns out there's some kind small injury on the cornea, I've got a salve, eye-drops, and I'm not to wear contacts for about two weeks, but at least I know what's wrong now. And my holiday can [::crosses fingers, knocks on wood::] go ahead as planned. Yesterday was awful, she didn't find anything wrong with either the lens or the eye & told me to come today wearing the lenses, so there's me in a slight state of panicked insecurity already, then in the afternoon G. walks in and tells me, helpful as ever, yes, that's how it started with him, too, and then he had to stop wearing lenses altogether, at which I really started to panic, made it through the rest of the afternoon in a daze, cried at my sister's, cried on the phone with my mother... So I might have been over-reacting a tad, but I'd really hate losing the freedom of the lenses. It's not vanity, or at least most of it isn't, it's the little things, like not having to push glasses up your nose when you're sweating, being able to wear normal sunglasses...

Well, yay!! :-) Though I actually *like* pushing up my glasses. It adds to he whole intellectual-image and gives me something to do.:-P I am weird like that.

Nah, it's when it's hot and you're doing something sport-y like hiking or running (though I've never done the latter with glasses) and you're sweating and the glasses are always, always slipping, unless they fit so tight that they hurt behind your ears... that's what's really annoying.

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't trying to project an intellectual image at least occasionally, but somehow glasses aren't part of it... Plus, I'm not *exactly* blind without them, but close to. A book has to be, like, 5 cm before my eyes for me to be able to read it clearly.
