10 Things all Contact Lens Wearers Know to be True

Contact lens wearers are the unsung heroes of the eyewear world. Tirelessly taking their contact lenses in and out without ever letting on to anyone else that their everday struggles are just as real as glasses wearers. This is for you, and your problems that remain unseen to the rest of the world!

Forgetting to take your contact lenses out at night and waking up thinking you have super vision.

Forgetting to take your contact lenses out at night and waking up thinking you have super vision.

Inevitable that every now and then you forget to take your #contacts out at night. Even more inevitable that in the morning you think that your vision has been restored by #magical sight fairies.

You’re unsure if you can actually wear your lenses for 30 days in a row without your eye rotting.

You’re unsure if you can actually wear your lenses for 30 days in a row without your eye rotting.

Yes they say 30 days and nights but can you trust them? The short answer. Yes. Contact lenses have come a long way and the joys of science mean that you can leave them in for longer without consequences (within reason), they’re called extended wear lenses for a reason and they’re amazing. Thank you Silicone Hydrogel.

The first time you put them in is never fun.

The first time you put them in is never fun.

There’s prodding. There’s poking. There’s tears and there’s an #optician. The first time really isn’t a walk in the park but thankfully you’re an expert now (well, you’ve managed to get the process down to a cool 20 minutes).

People’s reactions when you have a ‘glasses day’.

People’s reactions when you have a ‘glasses day’.

‘I didn’t know you wore #glasses is the most common phrase you hear the last day of every month. ‘Yes b***h, I do and I still look better than you’.

Not being able to find your contact lens in your own eye.

Not being able to find your contact lens in your own eye.

‘I know it’s up there and if I don’t get it something bad is gonna happen!’ Best thing to do is to remain calm and don’t use excessive measures trying to get it out. If worst comes to worst, go to the doctors.

Little did you know that world has a lot of issues with fingers going in eyes.

The last contact lens in the pack.

You forgot to re-order your lenses and now your facing either a day of blindness or a day of wearing your glasses. This is an avoidable situation. SmartBuyGlasses will email you to remind you that you’re running out! We’re so nice to you.

The fear of removing your contacts with no solution to put them in.

The fear of removing your contacts with no solution to put them in.

You get something in your eye and it’s really painful. You need to take your lens out. We’ve all been there. On the bus with another 3 hours left to destination. Sometimes you just have to put it on your tongue and hope for the best. No? Just me? The optician said you have to keep the contact lens moist!

Late nights out when the contact lens dries up and everyone thinks you’re wasted.

Late nights out when the contact lens dries up and everyone thinks you’re wasted.

‘No, I’m not drunk I JUST CAN’T SEE ANYTHING! Now take me to the bar!’

Wearing the contact lens inside out.

Wearing the contact lens inside out.

You spent half an hour this morning getting the damn thing in there but you’ve spent the entire day looking like you’ve got an eye twitch because something just doesn’t feel right. The best way to make sure your lens is in the right way is to ensure that when it’s on your finger, it looks like a cup and not a UFO.
