Automatic Eye Adjustments

On Saturday I found a copy of David Weber's latest book in the Safehold series (By Heresies Distressed) at a local Barnes & Noble. While reading it I took my glasses off so they wouldn't get in the way while laying in bed (I tend to roll back and forth as I switch sides of the book I'm reading). As I resumed reading I noticed that the words were just a little double visioned, which is easily confused as being blurry from a distance.

Lately I've been wearing my glasses more often than my contacts since I haven't taken the time to get a refill of the contacts. I've often fell asleep with the glasses on so they've gotten bent plenty. I've also been getting headaches fairly frequently (every few days) since I started wearing the glasses regularly again.

This morning I took the time to straighten them out. Not only were they crooked with one appearing lower/higher than the other, but they were rotated forward/backward as well. Now that they're perfectly straight my eyes are having flashes of disorientation when I move my head or attempt to look out the edges.

With the problem fixed it will probably take a little while for my eyes to adjust back to normal. If It gets worse or doesn't get better within a couple of weeks I'll schedule an appointment to get it checked out. With this episode it will be a while longer before I attempt to get checked out for corrective eye surgery.

Evening & Weekend Plans

Because I didn't get it done last weekend my evening plans this week will involve a lot of movies. Tonight I'm going to see Julie & Julia and, against better judgment since it won't get out until close to midnight, Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen. Tomorrow I'm going to see The Ugly Truth followed by watching Warehouse 13 on TV. Wednesday will feature Aliens in the Attic, followed by Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs in 3D on Thursday. Ponyo comes out on Friday and I'll try to catch the episode of Eureka I missed last Friday. To complete it all the last beta of Aion (MMORPG) is this weekend so I'll probably spend most of the weekend (minus Saturday game night) playing that.

This should be fun, right? heh
