Take care of your eyes; nothing beats the original

I've been wearing eyeglasses since Day One of med school—that is, until two days ago when I tried contact lenses again. I did it out of a whim, really, when I accompanied my classmate Carlo de Guzman over at Executive Optical to have his torn lenses replaced. Right there and then I realized I had to buy a pair myself. I'm impulsive like that.


I think that's why my classmates think something's quietly missing when they look at me without them—the glasses, I mean. Like my front teeth just fell off.  Jonas Bico said l looked weird. Jay Magbohos said I looked better. Camille Yuga said I suddenly had smaller eyes.

The funny thing is, I myself need to get used to my new, original look. But enough of me. I just hope I don't forget to take them off before going to sleep—or else I'd go blind.

  2. diba kuya, u become slightly cross-eyed the moment you take your glasses off? btw, I'm trying to edit my blog, and I don't know what to do para mapataas ang [Share Report Abuse Next Blog»] nga bar.. kay when I fix the padding or width, it usually falls off.

  3. I've always preferred wearing glasses. I think contacts are inconvenient. Also, I get too praning whenever I wear them. Haha :P

  5. Paul, haha! We'll see how these contacts would work. But I'll surely miss looking like the talk show host.

  6. Mike: I do, for the first 5 minutes, I think, when my eyes are adjusting. As to the modelling, there are tutorials that make that sidebar disappear, if you want it removed altogether.

  7. Hi, Faye. I get praning, too. And your white glasses look good on you naman.

    Lau, yes, apparently I've conditioned everyone in class to think my eyeglasses are an extension of my face. Haha.
