I tried to shoot my shot for some contacts and was rebuffed with prejudice. My prescription would have to be three times stronger than it is right now to qualify for contact lenses under MDOC policy. Basically, only the blind are allowed them.
I don’t wear glasses much in the world as it is, so I already detest having to wear em, but the default frames the state provides compounds the issue. Clear plastic at the nose, brown on the sides, these coke bottle lenses are infamously known as “Chomo 5000s” in every michigan prison and for good reason. Black, white, brown, doesn’t matter who you are, wearing them instantly make you look like you’d rape the shit out of some little kids.
