TP365/Year 10:: Connections – Dorothy Hammil

29 Nov

Today’s post is dedicated to Dorothy Hammil.

Or more specifically, MyEyeDr.

I ripped a contact this weekend and while half of it fell out of my eye, the other half tucked itself up inside and refused to come out. It was a painful 48 hours and I was worried that I scratched my cornea.

The good news is that I #Connected with my eye doctor today and the jagged little thing is out — and my eye is not scratched. I suppose the other good news is that I walked away with two new pairs of eyeglasses.

I have worn glasses since I was a little girl in elementary school. I can still remember my first pair. They were branded “Dorothy Hammil” and the temples were adhered to the bottom of the frame and then swooped up. I thought they were the coolest most stylish thing on earth for my four little eyes and tiny little body.

Apparently, they were, because that style is “coming back” according to the optician. I’m not sure I am ready to go back to my super stylish Dorothy Days, but I was inspired to try a new “look” — instead of regular-sized frames, we outfitted my prescription with larger sunglass frames. I am either going to LOVE this or LOATHE it but I can’t wait to find out.

In the meantime, I have new contacts on order and new glasses on the way, and most important, a healthy cornea.

And …a sweet #Connection to the little girl with the four eyes inside of me who wasn’t afraid to try on something new.

More tomorrow,
Jamie
