I dread my yearly eye exam – I don’t like having any objects near my eyeballs. I have flashbacks to that terrible scene in Clockwork Orange every time. So there’s a lot of cursing (the doctor) and squirming and sweating (me). Everything takes twice as long as it should.
But even I can’t stand to watch when I put in my own contacts every morning. I actually look away when I put in my lenses and then squish them into place through my eyelids.
Maybe it’s a control thing? I’m not sure I understand my behavior so I just chalk it is as “weird” and move on.
