Hey, beautiful! Today, I’m back with another blog post!
I have a bit of a weird one, but I think some people might find this helpful.
I’ll be talking about the things you need to know before you buy your contacts, and how my experience was like.
I’m gonna start by saying that I got my glasses back in 2013, so I’ve been wearing them for about 3 years now. And I always hated them with a passion.
I wanted to get contacts for so long, but my mom didn’t think it was a good idea, that was until about 6 months ago.
So we went to the optical shop/store/thing and asked the guy which contacts are best: the dailies or the weeklies. He said the daily’s are better, so I got them and left for home.
I don’t remember which brand the daily’s were, but I remember that they were pretty good, and didn’t irritate my eyes.
It did take me about 2 weeks to get used to putting in my contacts easily. It might take you a while, but practice makes perfect.
I wore the daily contacts for about a month, then decided to switch to weeklies.
I found that buying the weekly’s saved money, but wasn’t that effective.
I, personally, use the Acuve Oasys weekly contact lenses, and they worked pretty well.
As for the saline solution, I used the Opti-Free Express Lasting Comfort Saline Solution. It worked great, didn’t irritate or burn my eyes when I used it. I still use the same solution to this day, so that might say something.
Something that not a lot of people tell you before you buy your contacts don’t forget to buy eye drops.
You don’t know how dry my eyes became when I first put my contacts in, so this totally came in handy when that happened!
I actually really like these eyedrops because they don’t sting or burn, they just refresh and refresh my eyes.
And as you can see from the photo, I use the Refresh Plush Lubricant Eye Drops.
I got a whole pack of these delivered here from Costco, for a bargain price!
In the last photo, you can see that they come in little one use bottles, that come in handy when I want to pop a couple of these in my backpack, just in case I need them, and trust me, I do.
Lastly, I just want to mention why I stopped wearing my contacts.
As I have mentioned previously, I have been wearing my glasses for about 3 years, so everybody around me -including myself- got used to seeing me in them, and I just looked weird without them.
Its nothing to do with how the contacts felt or anything, it’s just that I prefer the way I look with glasses.
If you’re reading this to get advice on whether you should or should not buy contacts, this is what you need to know.
Try them out. Buy a pack, and out them on. See if you like them on yourself, or not.
Contacts are not for everybody, but they might me perfect for you!
