I am 50 and have been wearing contacts since the age of 14. I have predictably developed dry eye, which has turned a worse corner of late. Problem: I cannot tolerate glasses. No one questions you whey you say you cannot tolerate contacts. They look at me like I m crazy when I tell them I cannot deal with these glasses. All that I can do with glasses is low level activity, putter around the house, buy a coffee, stay within a 3 mile radius of my home. This has been my reality for 50 years. Working is out (I work in a pressure cooker of an ICU that is very demanding physically, mentally, and emotionally.) Studying is out. I can t tolerate bifocals, I have severe motion illness. I can vomit if I change the channels on the TV too fast. So I live in contacts, I wear readers to study. But now I m in a pickle. I tried to wear the glasses at work but I couldn t see, so I kept cleaning, cleaning, cleaning my eye glasses. Went home, slept 8 hours, wore my glasses to shop, had to stop and clean my glasses over and over. Drove home in the dark, traffic piled up behind me, I wouldn t go over 25 mph because I couldn t see. I cleaned my glasses to death and scratched them, so now they are replacing the lenses (I ve had them for less than a week.) But the reason I kept cleaning them in the first place is because I couldn t see out of them. When I take them off, I have to have my face 2 inches from the computer. So there s that issue too. But I just can t do any real hard activity with glasses, I have never been able to. What is wrong with me?
