About five years ago, I had my eyes lasered and said goodbye to contact lens anecdotes (y'know, like the one about plucking away at your eyeballs because you forgot that you've already removed your lenses) forever.
But I was destined to revel in 20/20 vision for only a short period of time, because soon after the operation my shortsightedness started to creep back. The last time I had my eyes checked (about three years ago, when I got my bus-driving licence), I had to squint like a cartoon Japanese villain, to see all of the letters on the chart.
And now, well recently I started wearing spectacles again. I just wear'em in the evenings, but it seems to make a difference to the frequency of headaches - which just shows me how much I've needed them. Thankfully, My eyesight isn't as poor as it was pre-laser. So the lenses are nice and thin, utterly unlike the coke-bottle bottoms that once made me look like a beady-eyed Super Dork.
In fact, the boy says he finds my librarian look rather sexy.
