If you’re a contact lens wearer, you know this to be true: You wear them because you can’t see, and you can’t wear them for too long otherwise you can’t see (read here). While they take away the trouble of wearing glasses (who else hates having to constantly wipe them?!), they often bring their own fair share of drama to our everyday lives. If you’re a member of the club, then I’m sure you’ll relate to these situations! #thestruggleisreal


1.  Being out for more than 8 hours is a straight-up nightmare

A full day of shopping is not an option, not when your eyes become a bleary, red mess after wearing contact lenses for about 8 to 10 hours straight – and in an air-conditioned environment? Forget it.


2. That instant pain you get when you put them in the wrong way

Chances are, there’s been at least one occasion where you’ve put your contact lenses in the wrong way and boy, just once is enough for us to learn a good lesson! Never again will I make this mistake! 


3. That huge relief of taking off your contact lenses at the end of the day

For most guys, it’s taking off your ties, and for most women, it’s taking off your bras. After you start wearing contact lenses though, they’re the ones you look forward to taking off the most at the end of the day. If you forget to do so, this brings us to the next point…


4. How impossible it is to get any sleep without taking them off

No matter how exhausted you are after coming home from a long day, there is one thing you absolutely have to do: Take. The. Lenses. Off. Otherwise, forget about getting that much-needed shut-eye. Unless of course, you want to know what it’s like to have raisins for eyeballs – it’s not fun! 


5. When you wear glasses because you’re out of contact lenses and everyone goes, “Eh you wear glasses meh?”

We almost never wear glasses to school/work/the outside world but sometimes, when we run out of stock, we don’t have a choice but to resort to being four-eyed. And when this happens, everyone around you will be asking the same question – since when you wear glasses?


6. Mixing up contact lenses of two different powers in the casing

All of you out there with the shortsightedness of two different degrees have suffered this time and time again. Once you mix them up, the only way to fix things is to try one side on – and hope you’re right on the first try. Constant poking of the eyeball is something you’d want to avoid at all costs! 


7. Packing your whole eye care kit whenever you travel 

When you’re travelling, there are some things that you can’t leave home without and this includes contact lenses cleansing solution, casing, eye drops, spectacles, plus a pouch to store all these essentials.


8. That fear of getting chlorine or water in your eyes when you go swimming

And you're most likely running away from something.

The space that our contact lenses occupy on our eyeballs is a sacred one, and one that should never be violated by chlorine/water via swimming/snorkelling. Time to invest in those prescription goggles if you haven’t! 


9. When you tear up for no reason whatsoever but people think you’re crying

Others might mistake you for a crybaby, but the sadness of watching a romantic drama is nothing compared to the pain of dry eyes. It really burns okay? *Sobs*


10. Feeling like two different people before and after wearing contact lenses

It’s kind of exciting to feel like you become a whole other person when you wear either glasses or contact lenses. And if you’re the type who’s envious of those with coloured eyes, chances are you’ve reached for blue/green/hazel/grey ones too to see how you’d look like in your favourite hue!
