Tiny Update: Soft Lenses Rock

photo (CC) Kate Ter Haar

My newest set of soft lenses are amazing.  Comfortable (16 hours+) and I can see pretty well.  Not quite as crisp as the RGP, but the comfort trade-off is worth it.  My overall vision is amazing.

I’ve ordered a few of these lenses ($50 per pair) which are custom crafted for my topography.  I’m not wanting to order too many because the shape of my eye will probably change a bit more if sutures come out, etc.

Little Things: Stargazing

I just went on a 2 week family vacation to CA.  Lots of night driving.  Not a peep out of my contact lens, and never any pain at all and wore them for 14+ hours daily.   We went to Yosemite and at 5000 feet elevation, found a remote field and just went stargazing for a few hours with my kids.  Did you know that most kids never see a starry night?  It was the first time I’d done this since cornea transplant surgery – and it was wonderful.  I had my new soft lens in place and each star was a pinprick.  Meteors, satellites and more.   I imagined my donor out there somewhere.  I think we might join a stargazing group in Lexington.
