Eye want to ask you:

Do you realize just how unbelievably lucky you are to have eyes that produce tears and are constantly filled with moisture?

I just yesterday had, and have had many times in the past, a terribly difficult time inserting and re-inserting my lenses, until they’re completely free of any trace of a bubble and comfortably placed atop each cornea, that give constant and necessary fluid to my chronically dry eyes.

I was talking to my niece later in her car after my sister, her young daughter and I enjoyed our favorite Thai lunch. I mentioned to the 3-year old that I am so thankful to God for giving a person the knowledge to create eyedrops. Right at that very moment a new thought struck me: Rather than being intensely frustrated and exceedingly annoyed – which comes to me as easily as a heavy snowfall during Michigan’s recently passed polar vortex – when my lenses aren’t lasting in my eyes for more than only a couple hours after exerting SO MUCH effort to get them properly inserted in the first place, I should be grateful that there ARE also eyedrops available to use. When I’m not wearing my lenses that provide constant dry eye relief, the individual preservative-free vials work wonderfully to keep my eyeballs wet.

My own, and maybe yours too, take-away reminder? Everyday life depends so much on perspective.

Be glad for EVERY LITTLE THING you have, including

1. wet eyes

and

2. lubricant eyedrops that make dry eyes wet.
