A SHORT HISTORY OF EYEWEAR For those too young to recall, filmstrips were the pre- cursors to videos, a series of still photos with subtitles that students took turns reading aloud while the teacher sat quietly in the dimly lit room regaining her sanity. But I couldn't make out the subtitles. In fact, I couldn't make out the pictures. And in my fourth grade mind, it was preferable to have my classmates think I was shy than to let them know I couldn't see. So when my turn came, I mumbled nothing in particular. The teachers asked me to read louder. I mumbled louder. She asked me to change places with a student in the middle of the room I did. Then I mumbled some more. She asked me to trade places with a student in the front row. I mumbled again. She asked another child to read. I decided to let my parents know I couldn't see. So one day while riding in the car, I casually mentioned that I couldn't read a particular sign. My brother snick- ered, "That's because it doesn't say anything." Turns out it was the back of the sign. Who knew? Eventually, the principal called my parents and I landed in the big chair at the eye doctor's, unable to decipher the Big E at the top of the eye chart without correction. Thus began my long history with eyewear. At first I loved my glasses. I was thrilled to be able to read filmstrips. I was astonished that streetlights don't look fluffy to those who see well. I was flabbergasted to learn that people have pores--big ones in some cases. But eventually, the excitement wore off--maybe be- cause of the pores. Still I swear it was an accident when I broke my glasses playing tetherbaU. If I was embar- rassed wearing glasses, I was even more embarrassed wearing glasses held together with masking tape. They were quickly replaced and I began to seek a cure. It oc- curred to me that maybe my eyes were.., well.., dirty. So I started to "wash" them with tap water each night before bed. I daydreamed that the Big E would come into focus without glasses at my next doctor's visit and I would be written up in medical journals for my mi- raculous recovery. That, of course, didn't happen, and I stopped washing my eyes. I graduated to contacts in high school and wore them happily for nearly 30 years. Eventually though, my eyes started to rebel and like many other middle-aged con- tact wearers, I found myself hauling a bag of vision sup- plies wherever I went: reading glasses to wear with the contacts, eye drops to wet the contacts, glasses to wear when I could bear the contacts no longer, a case for stor- ing the contacts, sunglasses to wear with the contacts and sunglasses to clip onto the glasses. You're probably wondering why I didn't just wear the glasses and be done with it. That's easy: I hated them. After 30 years of wearing glasses only before bed, I felt sloppy and sleepy when I wore glasses. Plus, before, when I couldn't wear my contacts, I could wear my glasses and when I broke my glasses, I could wear my contacts. I felt vulnerable without a backup plan and for good reason. I once knocked off my glasses while talking on the telephone. I found my- self on my hands and knees feeling for my glasses while trying to carry on a conversation. It's amazing I didn't land on them--that was another time. So when the opportunity presented itself, I had laser eye surgery. And ta da! I no longer carry a bag of vision supplies or live in fear of losing my glasses. And for the first time in my life, I can see the dock when I wake up in the morning. I can now see the inside of my shower FOR SALE and I can see in a swimming pool. I don't watch film strips anymore, but I can read a Power Point presenta- BY BLACK GOLD REALTY tion across the room without glasses.
