I don’t wear my contacts everyday but like to have them for certain physical activities such as yoga classes and walking where glasses steam up and get in the way: but who am I kidding? In honesty I most appreciate them for purposes of vanity. Whilst I have a reasonably nice pair of specs which I am perfectly happy to sport during general day-to-day life, when I am getting dressed up to go on a date, meet up with friends or to go somewhere special, I can’t help but feel my glasses put a dampener on things. I find that occasionally feeling you can look your best, if only once in a while, helps lift the spirits no end.
So it was with great relief that on my return appointment this week after giving the contact lenses a rest for a of couple weeks and regular use of artificial tears prescribed by my GP (Carbomer Gel 0.2%), the optician has given me the go-ahead to wear my lenses, so long as it’s restricted to ‘high days and holidays’. I am happy with that.
