I have astigmatism. For those of you who don't know, that means my eyes are football shaped instead of round. The more football shaped they get the worse your vision gets, and its an over all deficit.. not just near or far sighted.

Anyhoo, the point of educating you on that boring topic is that I just picked up my new contacts. I've worn glasses for the last year because the brand of contacts I got last year were horrid and I couldn't' wear them.

I'm back to my old brand now, and excited to be a non glasses wearer again. However, now that I have contacts, my computer screen doesn't look like a square. Its looks like an Isosceles trapezoid. How's that for some high school geometry for you? (I feel so flippin smart right now).

Astigmatism can make things look oddly shaped, and it takes the brain a while to adjust and correct this when wearing torric lenses.

My point is.. I'm glad to get out from behind my glasses because they make me feel claustrophobic, but damn if this shape isn't tripping me the F out!

this is the first post I've read where I had to go to Wikipedia to look up a word.
