Struggeling with my glasses

me with glasses

One thing you probably never noticed about me – because I am good at hiding it on pictures – is that I wear glasses. Without them I could not cope my everyday life.

I remember getting them when I was around the age of eleven or twelve and I hated them from day one. So it was only logical that I switched to wearing contact lenses when I became a teenager. And that worked really well for five, maybe six years, but eventually my lenses got more and more uncomfortable to wear until I could not wear them any longer.

That’s when I went back to wearing my glasses again. Although I got some compliments from my friends and family, telling me that they looked totally fine on me, I felt the same discomfort I was feeling as a child.

Almost ten years went by until I recently went to an optician to give it another try. He encouraged me by saying that over time contact lenses got way better and could not be compared to the ones from a decade ago.

He prepared a pair of test lenses which I have been trying out for the last couple of weeks. At first they worked quite well for me but after about 2 weeks I was facing the same problems again. So now I am waiting for my optician to get back to me on what to do next. I am hoping that maybe I just have to try different kind of lenses… 🙁

(This is one of the very few pictures that shows me wearing my glasses. Normally I always take them off before getting a picture taken).

    Ich habe dasselbe Problem mit Brillen. Ich habe meine halbe Kindheit lang Brille getragen und mich trotzdem nie daran gewöhnt. Mein Optiker hat mal gesagt, dass der Durchschnittsmensch 3 verschiedene Linsen probieren muss bis eine passende dabei ist. Bei mir war es das dritte Paar Testlinsen, das funktioniert hat. Ich hatte davor schonmal eine Marke, die ging, aber ausgerechnet deren Vertrieb wurde in Europa wegen Absatzmangel eingestellt. Deshalb die erneute Suche, aber wie gesagt bin ich mit der dritten Testlinse (und ihren Nachfolgern) seit Jahren ziemlich zufrieden.

      Hallo Stefanie, schön dich hier zu lesen 🙂
      Ich wusste bis vor Kurzem gar nicht, dass es bei Linsen solche Unterschiede gibt. Ich bin momentan noch bei meinem zweiten Paar Testlinsen und auch nach 3 Wochen funktionieren sie sehr gut für mich! Ich bin echt froh, weil ich mich eben auch nie an die Brille gewöhnen konnte…
