Today, I woke up thinking after wearing glasses and contacts all my life that I had miraculously been corrected to 20/20. Turns out I had just fallen asleep with my contacts in. FML

not really. I have contacts u can sleep in. I hardly take them out

You can get a yellow eggroll thing if you go a few months without taking them out. Every now and then on accident is alright but too much is bad. I don't see why the OP didn't feel the pain that follows after waking up with them on.

#10, if you are blind then how are you typing on the computer?

That's what I was thinking

he probably has someone that does it for him, or he has one of those keyboards specified for him.

braile keyboard or he was fucking with you

i always sleeep in my contacts. ahaha maybe i shouldnt! everytime i take them out im more blind then i was beforre :P

being a touch typer dumbass

Well, braille keyboards aside, how did #10 even read the FML in the first place? ...Yeah, I say he was fucking with us.

He said 'legally' which means he can't drive, but apparently his vision is sufficient to type without fear of causing traffic accidents.

@93: Im legally blind in my left eye, (20:169) yet I can still see perfectly fine in my right eye (20:19).

he was kidding! why does everyone take this so seriosly! it's fucking FML!

@120 Computer software for the blind reads webpages out to them. I have met several blind people on online forums who use software to read pages, and braille keyboards to type. Also, legal blindness means your vision is worse than 20/200 and (this is the most important part!) cannot be corrected with lenses, or, 20/200 is the best it can be corrected to. My vision is worse than 20/200, but as glasses improve it to about 20/40, I am not legally blind. By this definition, a person who is legally blind may not be able to use a computer any better than a completely blind person. I know without my glasses I have to be right up on the computer screen, and my vision is only 20/400! It's actually rather uncommon for a person to be totally blind (that is, not being able to see anything at all), so most blind people you meet are legally blind.

i have a friend that's 'legally blind' with contacts or glasses you can see

actually depending on the contacts it's really not. I have contacts and for the first year I took them out every night but then I accidentally fell asleep in them (they r meant for that) and now I sleep in them everynight

Sure does.... reality sucks.

haha that's really funny . but yea it is really bad for your eyes if u hve ur contacts in for too long.

Exactly, whenever I accidently sleep in them they become *stuck* to my eyes. I literally have to PEEL them off. Nastiest feeling ever!

sexybitch2292 0

then get the contacts tht r safe to sleep in. that's what I have and I never have problems with them. and I hardly take them out

This is on MLIA.

This is on FML.

I've done it more than once...I know full well it's bad for your eyes, but it happens. OP, remember you still need to take them out and clean them.

same here! I hate being blind!

how is your life f'd by this?

suzzierose 0

yeah seriously... so your life is exactly the same as before? poor you.

Even a year after getting my eye surgery, I still have mornings where I wake up and reach for where I used to keep my glasses -- even though I have my eyes open and can see perfectly well. It's weird how your brain works when you first wake up.
