Ways of Seeing

Somehow I lost a contact lens on Thursday night. It was the last lens I had for the worse of my two bad eyes. So I have been wearing glasses since then. It takes my regular glasses plus reading glasses for me to thread a needle, much to my boyfriend's amusement.
I assume going back to wearing glasses for awhile is good for my eyes. I'm fairly careful of them (wash them every day), and they aren't too scratched. But I don't see as well without the contact lenses, particularly detail. I had a bad reaction to them last year (it turned out to be the solution I was using), and my ophthalmologist told me that was it. If I develop a reaction to the current solution, then no more contacts. I see this current lens deprivation as a foretaste of that inevitability, and I don't like it. With any luck, I can pick up my new, special-ordered lenses from Cohen's on Friday, and happily be done with this for awhile.
