I’m very excited to be using contact lenses! I tried them on for the first time ~20 years ago and didn’t like them and stopped using them, but I wanted to give them a change and now I’m wearing them again! Contact lenses give me a feeling of freedom as I don’t have to wear glasses.
I’m still struggling with putting them on and taking them off, but I suppose I’ll learn how to do it without stressing my eyes.
I’ve been through laser eye surgery and I don’t want to go back to glasses anymore. So contacts are a great option for me.
Do you use contacts? Any tips on easy putting on/taking off contacts? Or do you prefer glasses?
I wear contacts. My advice is,
be generous with the contact solution. It is much cheaper than replacing contacts early because they tore from too little contact solution
try to unfocus your eyes when putting the contact in. Let your vision go fuzzy so you don’t see your finger coming right for your open eye
practice a few times with different methods for putting them in until you find a comfy one for you
I swore off contact lenses because they made my eyes dry and nothing fixed it. I hope they work for you!
Thank you for the tips @ninjastar !
I wish I will learn a good way to put them in. Today I was able to put them in in less time than the day before, so I believe my technique is improving.
I also have dry eyes so I put eye drops every day. I’m using disposable lenses as they are more hydrating than the ones you use for a longer period, and I feel disposable ones are easier to learn to use.
Disposable ones are much more comfortable! They do not come in my prescription, so I wear 2 week disposables. It is good you can wear that kind.
It takes a bit of practice, for sure. I have been wearing contacts for about 20 years now, but I do remember it being a challenge to learn how to put them in at first. It does get easier.
I love to have bold makeup, and glasses kind of hide my hard work! I need to learn to take the contacts off easily and so I won’t hurt my eyes, and when I learn that I’m confident on wearing makeup while having contacts. Baby steps!
