After that i stopped by home depot and got almost $100 worth of stuff. A hot air gun and a pair of scissors and some gloves and some sanding sponges for shaping the wonderflex, plus some insulation foam and a utility knife for building a core to wrap the wonderflex around :)
Then i stopped by the optometrist and picked up my prescription. Unfortunately the measurements are in weird new-fangled "scientific" values rather than good old fashioned 20/whatever numbers =P I got -5.0 spherical on one eye and -5.75 on the other, and "DS" for the cylinder on both of them. I asked the guy at the desk who copied it out for me if he had any idea what that was in 20/whatever measurements and he said he thought it was about 20/400, though that seems a bit extreme to me.
Anyways time for me to run off to see if Michael's and/or JoAnn's is still open.
