Use lens rather than Spectacles

Value for Money:

I have been wearing glasses since 12th school. I was made fun of…nothing new to a person who has had this eye affliction. I tried to avoid wearing glasses till I started literally walking into things and have been wearing them ever since. Through my Junior college and professional school all my well wishers and friends tried to mentally brainwash me into wearing contact lenses but I refrained.

I was even lured by my mom’s friend my ophthalmologist to try out a free pair that he would gift me. This experiment worked less than a week because of all the washing and rubbing that is required pre and post wear as well as the coarseness I experienced wearing the lenses turned me off the whole concept. Moreover, my conjunctiva (white portion of the eyeball on which rests the edges of the lens) is extremely sensitive due to persistent allergies (a reaction of your body to foreign particles…. namely proteins). So that was the end of it.

I have been studying here in the United States for the past 4 years and my glasses have given me no trouble, but recently due to blurring of vision I made a visit to get my prescription checked…and the great news I get is my eyes need a higher prescription lens in order to function like a normal person. The ophthalmologist convinced me that the way to go was lenses and offered me a trial pair of disposable lenses with the opti-free lens solution. She told me I could wear the lenses for a good 8-10 hours and even if I slept with them as long as I soaked them for 5-6 hours in opti-free solution I was good to go for another 8-10 hours. This time the lens bug bit me and I was sold out, the world seemed clearer and I did not have to bother about carrying a case for sunglasses, prescription glasses and the cleaning supplies, all I need was my case to carry the lenses (two inches long and an inch wide nothing compared to the cases for glasses)already containing the solution. Thus reducing my purse load.

I was blissfully happy, and recommended lenses to all my friends who are die-hard glasses fans, but they did not comeback with great reviews and I could not figure the reason as to why something that worked for me did not quiet as much make a positive dent if not impact in their lives.
