I spent the entire day today without my glasses.
There was nothing wrong with my glasses. I just didn’t wear them.
I normally wear contacts, but I’m down to my last pair, and lately my allergies have dried my eyes out quite a bit. As I was getting ready this morning, I decided not to wear my contacts and to stow my glasses in my man bag (read: European carry-all).
That’s where they stayed.
My eyes feel great. The bridge of my nose doesn’t hurt. Only drawback? Some occasional squinting.
Well, as far as I know.
Were there any details about my day that I missed because I couldn’t see them clearly?
Did I ignore anyone while I was out because I couldn’t see them well enough to recognize them?
Did I forget to do something today because I couldn’t see a visual cue that, if seen clearly, would have reminded me to do it?
Clear vision is vitally important. Without it, we don’t know what we are missing.
