While most of us can relate to being called ‘Four eyed person’ with our glasses on, some of us do enjoy waking up extra early to have enough time to put on our contact lens. Well yeah, you do get lesser sleep but clearer version without having to see through a pair of glasses and ever ready Snapchat photo’s pays it all off. But that isn’t all we appreciate about the little pieces of plastic, these facts make the contact lens routine, A-okay!
- Contact lenses can never be lost behind your eyes
We all have those days when we start scratching our eyes without realising that we had our contacts on that day, but don’t be alarmed cos’ the conjunctiva, a thin membrane which covers the front of the eyes connecting to the insides of your eyelids makes it impossible to get clogged up.
- Contact lenses are safe
If you have your pretty sighted friends (pun very much intended!) telling you contact lenses can be risky, it is true, only if you decide to careless for your lenses. Hence, frequently replacing your contact lenses every month and not wearing them for long house plays a big role.
- Contact lenses cannot be cleansed by water
If it’s not your contact lens solution, then it’s not a solution. While you may think tap water or bottle water could be an option when you’re running low on contact lens solution, it isn’t as it may be the cause of eye infections. So you might want to rethink your decision of showering or swimming with your contacts on today.
- Contact lenses are easy peasy to apply
We do agree that no one ever likes anything touching our eyes, but it isn’t hard to apply contact lens to your eyes. Using your most dominant finger pull down your lower lids and thumb to pull up the upper lids, while holding the lens with your index finger then gently pat it on your iris.
