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.
