Unexpected side effect

I have been wearing contact lenses for the past year. I have tried many different bands and many different types throughout the years. Honestly, my biggest challenge is inserting the contacts in my eyes or take them out. I had to plan about half hour every morning to get them in or get them out at night. I tried disposable, weekly, biweekly, you name it and I have tried it. Needless to say every attempt does not last too long with my crazy “on the go” lifestyle. Every single prescription was a failure. That was until I tried the AirOptix. Yes, I am a determined person: I always get what I want at the end. lol…


First of all, I am not sure what it is but they are firmer. Even though my eyes are sensitive, I manage somehow to drop them in and they stay. Most of the time, they fall right on the eyeball and I just blink to adjust it or move them into position. Secondly, I don’t have to take them out for a month. I just put a couple drops of solutions in the morning and through the day as needed. I personally do take them off from time to time. For example, when I have a day off, that means no school and no work, when I plan to read or write for hours. Like now. Well, I was going to take them out but I changed my mind. It is getting too late to write much more for the night.

However, I noticed that my eyelashes have tripled in length. I always had a nice amount of eyelashes, full, thick and long. So I never felt the need to add fake ones (fake eyelashes will be the topic of another post). Just some mascara to separate those lashes and I am out the door. Lately, my eyelashes are naturally so long that they are curling back on their own. I only use mascara to separate them or to prevent strays from stabbing me in the eye. Literally, I have been keeping my eyes on this (no pun intended.) It has been a slow, very slow growth so I do not expect it to go anywhere. I am just curious though: how far can it really go? Rather I want to or not, there are days that I must brush them after I washed and moisturized my face.

  1. How curious! I’ve never heard of this side-effect of wearing contact lenses – you could find yourself the subject of an investigative study, LOL! I tried contacts way back in my youth, but ended up having to stop as they irritated my eyes too much – I remember them as being very firm, so maybe that was the problem … I suppose I could try them again now, but I’m actually quite happy wearing my specs 🙂

    • Most people take their contacts out. I want to look into ingredients in the contact solution. Mine are very comfortable, I don’t even remember they are in until my eyes get blurry. That’s about it. I really like mine. And I am loving my new eyelashes 😉

  2. P.S. Meant to say thanks for stopping by my blog, too, and for leaving a comment – encouragement and feedback is always welcome and appreciated! 🙂

    • I am such a lurker. I have made it a point to like posts that I see and comment on posts that I enjoyed. Even it is just a few words. I know what how it feels to write something and you have no idea how readers really feel about it. lol… Thanks for the visit here too. I am following you now 😉
