Just grab this door. – Jessica!
-Hello! How are you? I haven’t
seen you in so long. Good! I know!
You look the same. Let’s first take a look
at your eyes. Okay. Can I borrow your glasses? Sure. I remember sitting here about- what, you said 14 years ago? -Eighteen years ago.
-Eighteen years ago. Excellent.
And on this side. First you said,
“I’d like to try contacts,” and I looked at you
and said, “How?” and you said,
“With my feet,” and I know we tried
a lot of times to make this work
and it’s not easy. But you had such a determination
that you were gonna do this. What I ended up doing is
I actually took Polaroid photos while we were doing this. Do you
remember me shooting pictures? I do remember. And we’ve had
these ever since when we have people teach
contact lenses and they say, “I can’t do it.
I just can’t do it.” Uh-huh. We show them
your pictures and I said, “If Jessica can do it,
you can do it.” The hardest part about this
is just opening the containers. (Giggles) And making it come out. Yeah, so. Let me make sure I got it.
Yeah, it’s on there. You’ve gotten a lot better
since last time. Yes. With a lot of practice. I’m gonna take
my glasses off first. I remember learning making
sure it’s not inside out. And that’s one of
the hardest parts. Yeah. It’s, like, supposed to
be a bowl, right? Ah! Okay. I’m still amazed
eighteen years later and I think you are
a big inspiration. In fact, there’s something
that seems impossible, I think about you in those days
putting on those contacts and I’m just amazed that
you were able to do it and I’m proud of you. Thank you.
