You have got a new pair of contact lenses, you are super excited because you’re not going to look 10 times uglier in those glasses, but once you start wearing them you realize that this high maintenance thing is getting a bit difficult for you to handle.
Same Old, Same Old
You forget that the solution in which the lens are kept have to be changed everyday. Sometimes you have kept those lenses in the same solution for a week. When you go to put on their lenses, you curse yourself for being so careless, especially about a delicate organ like the eye, but then you rush to do something else, instead of throwing away the old solution and putting in new solution at that very instant.
What is this Sorcery!
Somedays the lenses will refuse to attach on your eyeball and you will be forced to wonder if someone has put a curse on it. You will put some more solution on it, reverse it, contemplate hiring a person who will put on your lenses for you, say prayers to the almighty, call your workplace to say that you will be late when finally the first one has stuck. Then you do the entire process for the second one.
I have missed thee!
Somedays you just dont have the energy to wear lenses, those days you have to do an entire check of your day to see if your going to meet an interesting person. If the answer is no, then you jump with joy because you can finally wear your beloved spectacles that can be put on and removed whenever you want( without washing your hands and getting a microscope to see if there are any germs left!)
Imma Gonna drop dead
After a tiring day at work, removing contact lenses feels like a task. You wonder whether sleeping with lenses is actually damaging for the eye or just some of the things that those health proffessionals say because they are obssessive compulsive, but then you get back to your senses and get to the mirror to carefully get them out while wishing someone invented contact lenses that can be worn while sleeping.
You have nightmares that the lenses have tore in your eye, your eye has got infected or you have gone blind because of all the articles that people have sent you about being careful about the way you use your contact lenses after they see the way you handle your contacts.
All of us who are irresponsible with our contact lenses should thank our stars that our eyes are still fine and promise to follow all the guidelines recommended for taking care of our lenses( from tomorrow, Ofcourse!)
