I went to the eye doctor about a month ago. It'd been... 6 years? Something like that.
My contacts were beginning to bother me, which, it turns out, is expected because the lifetime of gas permeable lenses is 5 years. Oh, and the fcsking cleaning product tells you to clean it in a way that warps the lenses.
So I go and get some soft contacts. I like the gas permeable, but they shape your eyes a little bit. And that's a problem if you want to get LASIK. So I'm in soft lenses, and my eyes are slowly changing shape - reverting to whatever their "natural" shape is.
It's been 5 weeks and my eyes are settling down pretty well. With my next set I should have 20/10 vision.
