It's official....

I'm getting old!
I know, I'm only 30, right! So what the heck am I doing with Dry Eye Syndrome? Sounds like a t.v. commercial doesn't it? Well folks, get use to seeing me in these lovely glasses that by the way are like 10 years old and I paid $99 for them when Shawn and I were first married.

Ya see, my eye doctor has been trying new contacts on me for as long as I can remember. Every time, he would say "how do you like these?" Truthfully, I have never been totally satisfied with any of them. My eyes are constantly dry and red. I look like I've been up all night when I have actually gotten a full nights rest.

Well last week, I had had enough and voiced my frustration. He did a little dye test on my eyes and came to the conclusion that I have "dry eyes." Which by the way is very uncommon "for someone my age." FABULOUS, so what does this mean. It means that on bright beautiful sunny days when I want to wear my super cool big black sunglasses with the rhinestones on the side....instead I have to wear these (or my new ones which will be coming in this week). I have to put eye drops in my eyes 4x day for 4 weeks!!! Talk about a pain! At the end of the four weeks, I go back for a reevaluation and possibly the go ahead to wear my contacts and sunglasses again.

So in the meantime, get use to the 4 eyed Lacie :(

  2. I would just die without my shades. I had some problems with my contacts and dryness and my Dr finally changed me to Acuvu Oasis. They are just awesome for me. Good luck with your contacts.
