It hasn’t been this bad in a while, but my day ended like 15 minutes ago because that was the limit on how long my eyes could handle my scleral lenses today.
All in all, they are magic. I’m not sure what I’d do if I lived before they were available.
It’s moments like these I think about the complexity of accessibility and disability. By just about any estimation, including my own experiences, I think labeling myself as having a disability feels absurd. And yet, in many ways I can only fully participate in daily life through what might be deemed a medical assistive device.
Everything is a spectrum.
