How to 'look' stupid in four easy steps


Step 1: Be blessed with Mr Magoo short sightedness and at nearly 44 have the eye prescription of -10.75 and -11.25!


Step 2: Although invention has provided relief in the shape of contact lenses, go and put the wrong strength lens in the bad right eye.


Step 3: Spend three days not seeing quite right, being out of sorts and generally feeling like the Wonky Donkey.


Step 4: Finally click in, replace with right power lens and feel as if a miracle has happened, sight and what sanity I ever had, restored.

P.S. yep thats me, Amanda, aged 43 and 3/4 :) Bet you thought I looked like a teddy bear so I thought it time to put a face to the Pandy Potter name.

Great to put a face to the name!!

I'm a contact lense wearer (only -5.25 though!!) and thankfully have the same prescription in each eye!

Lol, I've been considering getting contacts for a while now but would probably end up doing the same thing :-)

Nice to see you too! I tried contacts years ago, but felt naked without my glasses. No, no bear like features at all.

How lovely to see you, Amanda! You are very brave to have contact lenses. I tried them once many years ago - never again:)

It is so nice to say hullo to you photo. You found out he hard way that the lens goes in the eye that needs it.

Nice to see you! I wear one contact for painting/reading only - that's because I need varifocals and so one eye goes without and the other gets the reading lens - it feels a bit like being a fish with both eyes doing a different job and I am not getting used to it! I constantly shut one eye or the other to amuse myself. Betty
