Why I only wear one contact lens.
Tired of wearing glasses?!
I used to wear glasses all the time. I got irritated that they got in they way when I wrestled with my kids, would slide down my nose while exercising (or fall off!), and I couldn’t wear them in the pool. My left eye had such bad astigmatism that I couldn’t wear a contact in that eye (I tried several types of lenses and none of them would stay put and work right!).
So a few years ago, I bit the bullet and did it . . . I got Lasix for my left eye!
Why not my right? Well – it wasn’t as bad as the left and so we tried just doing the 1 eye first. (It was cheaper that way too. 🙂 I had saved some of our tax return to do this, but didn’t have enough to do both eyes at the time, so I was thrilled when the doctor said he only wanted to do the one eye!)
The doctor told me I was right-eye dominant, but he thought after the Lasix in my left eye that I might still be able to go without a contact in my right eye. But trying to change to being left-eye dominant just wasn’t working (my mom said I kept squinting funny – trying to use my left eye more than my right!). So we decided to try a contact in my right eye. Ahh . . . much better! For now – just having one contact works fine . . . though in the future, I may go have Lasix done on my right eye as well.
It truly has been a blessing to not have to wear glasses all the time! I can now run or exercise and not worry about having my glasses fall off or slide down my nose, I can wrestle with my kids, go swimming and still see, and more! I love it!
Now, I went through a local doctor for my Lasix, but since many of you are not from here, I wanted to pass on this info to hopefully help you make a decision as to whether Lasix is right for you.
