I saw the eye doctor yesterday for an annual appointment. It was my first time seeing this doctor and it was also the first time anyone (esp. an optometrist) has questioned my decision to still be wearing hard contact lenses. I’ve been wearing them since the 8th grade and had done fine with them…although the past few years I’ve become more and more uncomfortable while wearing them.
Well today has been my first full day wearing soft lenses and oh man WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!! I haven’t had to take them out once for dust or eyelashes getting stuck in them…they don’t get dried out or scratchy on my eyes…and it doesn’t hurt to put them in at 5am before swim practice in the mornings.
I love them. Really wish I’d made the switch sooner…but better late than never!
