Struggles Only Someone Who Wears Contact Lenses Can Understand

By Malaika Tahir | 10 Dec, 2016

They are a magical creation by mankind that almost makes you forget how weak your eyesight is. ALMOST.

If you are a daily contact lenses wearer, you know life isn’t as easy as it seems. It’s often about invisible grains magnetically getting stuck to your lenses, irritation, headaches and crawling on the floor looking for lost lenses. Here are struggles every lens wearer can relate to:

 

1. When you’re in a hurry and your lens decides to play hide and seek

The days when you were left only with one lens because you couldn’t find the other one and you had to crawl all over the place to find it.

2. In case you found the lost lens, you had to quickly save it from crumpling and dying from thirst

 

 

2. You have inserted both lenses in the same eye on days you were too sleepy or tired to notice

And you wondered why the world was still blurry

3. If both your eyes have a different number you’ve sometimes mistakenly swapped the lenses 

And again you wonder why the world is blurry.
