13 struggles only people who wear contact lenses will understand

1. The memories of the first time you ever tried to put them in haunt you to this day

2. Trying to figure out if you have them the right way round…

4. If you’re a gal, you’ve probably painstakingly applied eye makeup, then remembered you need to put your lenses in

And so begins the “DON’T LET THE CONTACT TOUCH THE MASCARA” dance.

5. Waking up in the morning, seeing everything around you, and thinking “I’VE BEEN CURED!”

It happens with EVERY batch. Every batch!

9. Casually putting your whole hand in your eye to adjust a rogue lens

They WERE CRAISINS!!!! #fml #nojuice #rolling #verymuscular #contactprobs #cantseethehatersss Source: Instagram/jules2coolzzzz

“HOW CAN YOU PUT YOUR FINGERS IN YOUR EYES LIKE THAT?” Easy. Like this!

11. Contact lens tears

We’re not sad! No, these are just the tears of tired, sore eyes.

12. Finding a shrivelled old contact lens flung on your floor

Aww. Farewell, little buddy.

13. But despite all this, appreciating the magic of the lens

Perfect sight, just like that. It’s wizardry, we tell you.
