The past few months, I've been getting some really bad headaches, mainly while reading (be it on the computer or an actual book), and looking at my ipod, etc. So today, I went to an optomitrist (sp?). I found out that I am farsighted and have an astigmatism. This has kinda pissed me off today, but I should have known that I would eventually need correction, as both my parents have glasses. I had made up my mind beforehand that i wouldn't get glasses; I'd go strait to contacts. turns out, I "can't" do that. Apparently, my vision is bad enough that i have to get to the desired level of correction in two steps, as to make it a little easier for my eyes to adjust. It would also seem that glasses will make the transition easier. Once the transition is done though - about 6 months from now - I should be able to get contacts. So my question to you is this: do you have some sort of vision correction? If so, what type? I would have made a poll out of this, but polls don't seem to stimulate conversation as much as 'click-and-walk-away' results.
