Last Friday, I suffered from irritated eyes.
I've been wearing contact lenses for 15 years. Yes, you read it right - 15 years!!!
And I do not have a spare eyeglasses.
First thing I do when I wake up? Wear my contact lenses.
Last thing I do before going to sleep? Remove my contact lenses.
And honestly, sometimes I sleep with my contact lenses on. Very bad habit.
So, imagine - I wear contact lenses for 18 hours or more a day.
I also have to admit that I wear expired contact lenses. Like those that last for 3 months, I wear them for a year.
I'm not very diligent in taking care of them. For example, I wear them on without cleaning. Bad hygiene.
I do not follow proper care lens most the time.
I also let my nails grow and my eyes suffer from scratch each time I remove my lenses.
And the worst thing.... I wear them on even if they are ripped or with tear.
Having said so, I shouldn't be surprised if one day - all these bad habits backfire.
Well, this is not the first time it happened to me. Pangatlo na, actually. Parang every 2 years.... Walang kadala-dala!
Contact lens pa more!!!!
