Poor vision corrected

As a young teen, I wore eyeglasses. When I got older, and the prescription was stronger, I found I had to regularly put them on and take them off to see both near and far. At this point I also often wore contact lenses, which made removing eyewear even more inconvenient. A friend suggested I wear one contact in one eye, and none in the other. The eye doctor agreed, adding that “the brain” would make the adjustment so that I could see far off with one eye, and up close with the other. But this soon became difficult. 

I thought I should pray about the difficulty I was experiencing with this new arrangement. Then I realized the foolishness of this approach. How was I to pray for my contact lens to work in one eye, and for the other eye to adjust and see without a corrective lens? 

Mary Baker Eddy wrote in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, “To heal by argument, find the type of the ailment, get its name, and array your mental plea against the physical” (p. 412). I decided I needed to address the specific claim that eyesight could be anything less than perfect.
