My parents first realized there was something wrong with my eyes when they saw the way I watched TV: literally glued to the screen. I remember being six years old, sitting at the ophthalmologist's office, asking her whether I was going to go blind. Thankfully, that fear was unfounded, and I can still see. However, my vision has gotten worse over the years and, this past summer, an ophthalmologist suggested that I begin wearing contact lenses.
I was in for a treat. Not the pleasant kind, either.
Without further ado, here are a few of the many issues contact lens wearer have to deal with:
The trippy feeling that comes with changing from glasses to contacts, and vice versa
The ocular Sahara
The impossibility of having long nails
Poking your eye one too many times a day
People not recognizing you without your glasses
The wind in your eyes
When you need to take your contacts off ASAP but there is not case, solution, or glasses in sight
Dust gets in your eyes more easily with contacts than with glasses
The feeling of taking your contact off at the end of a long day.
