THINGS ONLY PEOPLE WHO WEAR CONTACT LENSES CAN UNDERSTAND
Obviously they’re a blessing for all those people with high power out there but every person who wears contact lenses knows that keeping stock and always remembering when you last opened the seal of the lens case and its solution, can be a task. God forbid, if you opened them on different dates then you need a roster to take care of this confusion.
RANDOM RAPID BLINKING ISN’T A NORMAL HABIT
Ever noticed one of your friends starts blinking suddenly without reason while continuing the conversation with you? No, she wasn’t ‘fluttering’ her eyes at you but she was having a ‘lens displacement’ moment. This happens every time while going in the auto or even when it’s too windy. Super irritating bitch, them lenses.
SLEEPOVERS CAN NEVER BE IMPROMPTU.
So this one time we were at a family friend’s place and my parents randomly decides to stay over for the night. Hello? I need a sleepover alert the day before so that I can carry the lens solution and lens case! Now where do you want me to keep them? In Dadi’s denture kit? So, random sleepovers entail hunting for a medical shop late at night and then staying blind for the night since you didn’t carry the spectacles.
NO LONG DRIVE SLEEPING.
It’s not like the lenses dissolve in your eyes but you know the optician told you not to sleep while keeping them on. So even though everyone is happily dozing off around you, you’ve to stare out the window and make sure you don’t doze off.
AVERSION TO RAIN AND FIRE.
Every person who wears lenses has been told at some point that there was this incident where the lens stuck to the person’s eyes because he or she looked at the flame for too long. So even when you’re lighting diyas at Diwali, you take a pan wide view so that you don’t focus on the flames. And rain is obviously a no-go. So much for the ‘natural’ look.
HOLI IS THE WORST.
Now obviously you can’t wear lenses on Holi. So you either decide to go sans spectacles if your power isn’t too high or you’ve to wear your specs if the person standing two feet away from you resembles a tree when you’re not wearing them. But of course, there will always be that one pervert who’ll ‘surprise’ you from behind and displace your specs. Even though you just want to rip that person’s head off, you obviously just happily oblige cause Holi Hai!
