My optometrist took these amazing scans of my eyes today:

(My left eye)

(My right eye)

The bright orange spheres are my optic disc, where all the blood vessels converge, and the dark spot in the middle is my macula. Cool, huh? They have such a haunting, astronomical quality to them.

I tried to show them to my friend but as soon as he saw the first picture he yelped and started gagging, and my other friend informed me that he has a "fear of eyes", whatever that means.

I think I need to get pics of mine when I go to the optom next. My eyes are pretty bad so there will be some good examples of the beginning stages of degeneration! Awesome!

The beauty of being a contact lens wearer is that I pretty much have no fear of the eyeball. I have been known to randomly touch my eyes to gross people out.

Yeah I'd def recommend. My eyesight is TERRIBLE but my eyes are healthy, which I don't really understand but it sounds good at least.

Arg! Eyeball touching! The act itself never seems bad but there's something about the thought of pressing down on this squishy gelatin-like mass that makes me squirm. When I was in third form a boy in my class put a (cow) eyeball in his mouth instead of dissecting it. Super gross.
