CONTACT LENSES: MY EXPERIENCE WITH VISION DIRECT

London, UK


Almost two months ago I decided to start volleyball again. When I was younger and still living in Italy, volleyball was my true passion, but for a series of reasons, I had to quit. Since I moved here to the UK and started working, I was looking for something to do in my spare time so OBVIOUSLY, I decided to start volleyball again.
When I used to play volleyball years ago, I wore my prescription glasses sometimes, and luckily I never had any sort of problem but I knew that it wasn't safe at all. This time I wanted to be wiser and more careful so I opted to try out contact lenses. 
Why not?

I purchased my lenses via Vision Direct. The delivery was really quick and they even included a small Haribo pack within my parcel. Yes, you read correctly: Haribo sweets for free! I will DEFINITELY keep purchasing my lenses from them! lolI decided to buy the monthly contact lenses Biomedics 55 Evolution because of the low price and easy daily care. Now the only thing that I needed was a solution to clean/sterilize my lenses. I opted for Opti-Free Replenish Contact Lenses Solution on Amazon, a real bargain!

My first experience trying to actually wear the contact lenses weren't that bad if I have to be honest! It took me 25ish minutes for both eyes and I was really pleased with the results!
Finally, I didn't need to squint to read any type of writing and my eye makeup was actually noticed for once! The only downside was that I managed to lose one of the lenses without even realizing it. lolAll in all my experience with contact lenses is absolutely positive! Never experienced infections, dry eyes nor irritation *touch wood*. Now that I'm more experienced, I'm even using them in my spare time. I really don't know why I didn't try them earlier! *shaking my head*

What about you? Have you ever worn contact lenses? If yes, do you have a funny story about it? Let me know guys! I'm curious!!!

  6. I prefer lenses but last six month I went for glasses again because I had a feeling my eyes were becoming really tired after wearing lenses and I decided I needed a break from it. Funny story- the first time I got my lenses, a nurse helped me get them inside and after that, I had to try it myself. So I immediately manage to loose one of them (I swung my arm and woops- it flew out of my hand) and I had two nurses look for it, including me :D

  7. I tried them on months ago and it took me almost 2 hours to just put them on in my eyes! I was all sweaty and it irritates me a lot until i managed to put the the right one on and then the left.

  8. I've always loved wearing contact lenses! I think I started wearing then when I was 16?.. The colour grey were the crzeeeee back then lol! As an oriental, I quickly jumped on the bandwagon of wearing circle lenses, a thicker ring to make your eyes appear larger! I haven't worn contacts since motherhood is taking a toll on my life lol but I have been considering it :) thanks for this post beautiful!
