For the past two weeks I have endured another fear in my life while fighting with my right eye. For a few days, I thought the poor eye sight was going to win, then I decided it was time to let it rest. And so I did.

I am pleased to announce, my eye sight is much better now. Nightly, I have been a really ‘good girl,’ obeying the suggestions of my eye specialist by removing my contact every night. With every awakening, I see improvement. It is so special to have good eye sight again. Now, I must remember while working at a computer — I must take the time to look away from the screen. To remind me to do this, I have the TV on. Occasionally something from the Trial of Dr.  Murray/Michael Jackson will catch my attention and I glance away from the computer screen while continuing to allow my fingers to dance across the keyboard.

Another suggestion the doctor stated was for me to blink, blink, blink more often. “This is good for dry eyes,” she said, “And your right eye does have dry eye syndrome.” OK, so now I’ll blink more. If you, my friends, are reading this and see me out and about, now you will know why I am blinking more. No, I’m not batting my eyes at some guy. Simply blinking. Blinking…and blinking to lubricate my right eye!

I truly learned an important lesson from this experience. Just how many times have I ‘forgotten’ to remove my contact after wearing it for one week. DUH! I don’t know! I do not count those incidents. And — how many times have I worn the same contact for — more than two weeks? Don’t know!!!

While working at a university, I saw many students remove their contact, wet it with a bit of saliva and place it back in their eye. Trust me, I’ve never done that!

Now, after this experience, I will take better care of my eyes. I do not wish to lose my sight, and I don’t imagine others who are losing their sight want to have this happen, but things do happen in life. We just have to learn how to cope and deal with these situations. Today, I am so thankful to be able to see again, to not have to squint and focus with much difficulty and to not wear the “dollar store reading glasses!”
