I started using contact lenses after I finished my Masters. Apart from trying a new way of seeing things, I was also attracted to the facts that how easy life can be without the hanging glass right in front of my face. I was not demotivated by the dificulties as a first time user, rather I was adamant and tried hard to make the tiny and flimsy membrane to stick on my eyes even it was like hours to do it. Practice make perfect.....and I never regret of trying this new thing since I could feel a lot more freedom without anything blocking my face.
Anyway, from the moment that I knew I have to go for the transplant, my first thought was that I have to go back to my glass wearing. Besides that I may risk myself to get eye related problem, the side effect of dryness of the eyes from the chemotherapy may not allow me to continue using contact lenses anymore.
There goes my new look. Most of the people were surprised since they never knew that I am shortsightedness and always on lenses. A few told me that I am funny with the new look but others said that I looked more distinguished. Whatever lah! I never bothered and obsessed over my changes anymore.... since nothing is more important than getting back your good health.
