Re: contact lenses?

I found that an evaluation at the eye doctor is a trigger for me. I passed out twice at the eye doctor once from him just switching the visual fields and once approaching my eye with his hand to do a pressure test. I was wondering if your reaction was when the Doctor was doing something to you or whether you were putting in the lenses. I found that if I am in control I'm fine. If someone is doing something to me, my body shuts down. If the Doctor has your Rx, I wonder if you would be okay by inserting the lense yourself. Of course if you end up with a problem... good night. I have chosen to live with glasses.
