Dead Eyes - Livin' the Good Life

Something I've noticed about my eyes since I've been avoiding my glasses is that they feel a bit "dead". I know that sounds dramatic, but my eyes have been shielded by glasses for the last 54 years. They get limited exposure to the elements, like air, wind, and sun. I only look through the narrow frame of the glasses, so they don't move up and down, or left to right as much a non-glasses wearers. They don't have to function like clear-sighted eyes do. The glasses do it for them. They work less, so they feel weak and ineffectual.
But, here's the good news: They are waking up! They are reviving! They feel more alive now, and every day I notice improvement.... like they are trying to see normally, and they are succeeding! I have a long way to go, but I'm so encouraged.
I hope to be able to look at my eyes in the mirror, as time goes by, and see eyes that are more lively. I hope to see skin around my eyes that has more tone and color. I hope to be able to look at my glasses-less face and even recognize it as my face! I look so different without glasses that I hardly know my face! Ha! But, that's ok. I like where this is going. This is gonna be great!
