Today was a sunny February Sunday. I decided to go for a short walk along one of the many trails in my neighborhood…without my glasses or contacts.
Of the 15 years I’ve been wearing contacts, I don’t think I’ve ever stepped out of the house to go on a walk (or do anything for that matter), with my naked eyes.
Yes, quite visually impaired, I took the chance of accidentally steeping in horse poop…but it was totally worth the risk. No I couldn’t see well, but there was a potent element of liberation to undergo a simple task like walking without these visual crutches I depend so heavily on.
For now, I definitely can set aside my Saturday or Sunday morning to do this. As the days get longer, hopefully I will make time before work on the weekdays as well!
And YES I HAVE MADE IMPROVEMENT WITH MY VISION!! I have a few eye charts as great décor in my house, and I can definitely see an extra two lines standing from the same distance! Some days clearer than others, but change nonetheless, and it has been about one month since I’ve begun this journey to better vision.
