Contact Lenses

Yesterday, I marched into my Optometrist's office with the hope of switching from Glasses to Contact Lenses! I went through my eye exam, and then my Optometrist recommended a few different brands of contacts for me to try. I picked the cheapest pair, which also happened to be the pair that was the most heavily recommended to me. I then spent over an hour doing the "training" with my contacts to learn how to take them out and put them back in again. Let me tell you! Contacts are hard to put in and take out!

According to the lady teaching me, I have deep-set, almond shaped eyes, which makes contacts extremely hard to pull off because there's such a small amount of space for the contacts to go. After I got my contacts in for the second time, my eyes were bloodshot and they burned really badly! I left them in after that because I was sure that if I kept touching my eyes they would swell up.

After I had them in for a few hours, my eyes felt better and I felt really comfortable in my contacts! I went about my day, and it was really great!!

When it as time to take them out, I was sure that I'd be able to do it. However, the more time went by the more panicked I felt about not being able to take them out. After an hour of trying to take them out, and crying, and panicking, I got ONE of the lenses out. I then said "Screw it! I'm leaving in the other one! I'll just go blind!" but I knew that I wouldn't be able to sleep knowing that I still had that one contact in my eye. After another half an hour, I got the last one out.

Bleh... This morning, when I went to put in my contacts, it took me about an hour of trying before I gave up and put my glasses back on.

Are there any tricks to putting in and taking out contacts that I don't know about?? If so, please tell me what they are!
