My doctor started me on Air Optics Aqua contacts a few years ago. As I understand it, not everyone can wear them. In fact, they felt large in my eyes the first time that I tried them, but they are the most comfortable, long day wear contacts that I have ever worn.

I also remember those one year contacts and the multiple chemical cleanings and other pains. Things are MUCH easier now.
I started last night... today was the first FULL day...

Also the monthly, Air Optics.

I am still getting used to them. The left one seems to have settled in quite well, while the right I can still feel it in the eye. A bit of a nuisance, but hopefully as my eye warms up to them after a few days it will be ok.

I wore them about 10 hours today. Just took them out now... they weren't bothering me. But I was told to only wear e'm max 10 hours for the first week.

Contemplating that as well... but the price tag is over $5k.

After about 4 years or so, my eyes started to not be 20/20. So I wore glasses for a little while until I decided to go ahead and take them up on an enhancement. So I went back in 2010 (I think) to have my eyes "re-zapped" and they've been great ever since.


Went and saw Mary Poppins yesterday.....WHAT A SHOW! I highly recommend seeing it if you ever get the chance. Outstanding. The sets were amazing!


Have a great Monday gentlemen!
Look at you... Mr. Laser eye dude for free!!! The things you learn about nemesisisisis on discussion boards.

Told ya Mary Poppins was awesome... Same show as T.O.? A bit different from the movie? With Mrs. Andrews? No Penguins? and Park Statues? Favorite scene for me was the Bird Lady.

I also made this one, which ended up being HUGE, even on my wrist.



So, not the most successful blog experiment. I'll have to do more research about how to make it so DD can't break it as easily.
Those look awesome

Your cold air is sneaking out and running down here. I am headed to Lake Okeechobee next week for some bass fishing.

I do not need a cold front to "make things interesting". Things are interesting enough, thanks!

I set up the Dole Whip and bacon on a plate, went to get my camera... and I told Scott to keep an eye on it.

Well, this is what I found when I got back.

You can kinda see the remnants of both.

We have one direct flight a day. It takes off at 3:10 and lands at 7:20. I'm not super thrilled with the time since we'd need to rent a car. There is an earlier flight but we'd have to change planes at Midway which I'm not thrilled with. I do like the return flight one way from Orlando. We'll definitely have to consider it.

That is the one. It is a really cool pin. We'll have to try the THV one day.

Is this a Dole Whip from Aloha Island or Captain Cooks or is there a requirement?
