I am short sighted and I wear contacts. I used to have glasses, but they really really bothered me and made me feel insecure. I'm so much happier now.
I used to wish for nothing more than to have perfect vision (mostly because I had to wear glasses), but now I kind of appreciate it, because - and only people who have bad eyes will understand this I think - sometimes I just look around and think: My God, the world is so beautiful. I really appreciate how well I can see everything, all the colors that are there and everything. It just makes you appreciate beauty more, I think.
Sorry, was that offtopic!? ;)
