In November I had laser eye surgery, it took my brain about a week to unlearn 23 years of right eye dominance. 7 days to rewire 23 years of neurological pathways.
Quite impressive. Quite fascinating. And yet what I find more fascinating is that almost three months later, I still want to wear my glasses. When I am tired, when I feel ill, at the end of a long day, I want to wear them.
So I do. I popped the lenses out weeks ago. I put them on, and I feel as if I can see more clearly. I genuinely do. I feel as if I can see more clearly, through my glasses with no lenses in.
The habits I can't break speak volumes about who I am.
