I keep poking myself in the eye.

I decided the get some contacts for my trip to Aruba so I can wear sunglasses. Holy fuck are they hard to get in. I spent an hour at the glasses store yesterday to no avail and am going back again today for more awkward failure and snide comments about missing the eye.

Make me feel better with your own stories of failure.

    I wear glasses. All my friends hopped on the contacts bandwagon.

    Fagwagon more like.

    Also my glasses cost something like 4000 krones, which is about 700 USD.

    Because you'd get it in and then not be able to get it out.

    Getting it out is much harder at first I found.

    Putting in contacts is really easy with a little practice. It's just about overcoming your blink reflex. It helps to practice with eyedrops, it's the same basic concept.

    Once I had an eye infection, and I took eyedrops to ease the stinging.

    Those fucking drops stung even worse. Didn't feel the slightest bit better.

    I have a pair of prescription Oakley's for my sunglasses needs.

    I tried contacts for a while; fuck them in the ear. Fuckers dried out in my eye. Shit hurt. I rubbed the skin around my eyes raw they hurt so much.

    It took me awhile too. Just try touching your eye without blinking, then worry about the contacts.

    man dont touch your eyeball without the contacts thats terrible advice

    you get used to putting in contacts to the point where it takes 3 seconds and you wont blink at all while doing it
    just use a lot of contact solution at first so everything is moist
    it gets easy to put in eyedrops later but since its hard at first just tilt your head back and squirt the bottle of contact solution all over your eyes so it will get in when you force them open a crack


    annoying thing is when you cant wear them after a while
    i wore them for a few months no problem but now they can be kinda uncomfortable so i only wear them when i work or get haircuts (cos at least now after all these years i dont have to wait to be suprised by how it turned out)

    kinda sucks cos i think i look better with them
    maybe i should just look into getting new glasses

    I used to wear contacts all day every day back in high school, all self-conscious about glasses and junk. But as I got older, I got lazier and didn't care so much about what people thought, and the only time I ever wear contacts now is when I'm working out or maybe going out at night.

    I only wore glasses for like a year before switching to contacts so I'm basically just adjusted to them at this point, and going back to glasses would be weird.

    I can't wear contacts. I have a sever blink reflex.

    They used to try to take the pressure readings in the eye by using the meter that rests on the film of tears covering it. Usually took 3 or 4 tries on my right eye, and they were never able to complete the test successfully on my left.

    But I've been wearing glasses since I was in pre-school, so most people think I look weird without them anyway.
