I’m quite visually impaired. I have been since I was wee. I get by with incredibly strong contact lenses. But having some hiatus time and some cash to burn on robot parts, I am going to get contact lenses surgically implanted into my eyes.
Let’s type it one more time out loud so that I might freak myself out of actually doing it.
I AM GOING TO GET CONTACT LENSES SURGICALLY IMPLANTED INTO MY EYES.
I started with pre-op stuff today, with weird eyeball water boarding, dilated pupils and gratuitous tears. Feeling grateful for having any sight, at all. In a world with no such thing as contacts, I would definitely qualify as disabled. But I’m extremely fortunate that I get to function with lenses. And so let’s SURGICALLY IMPLANT THEM IN MY EYES, SHALL WE? Hoping very much that the sight that I do have does not get accidentally sliced / burned / lasered out?
