Works For Me Wednesday
Thanks to Shannon over at Rocks in My Dryer for hosting Works For Me Wednesday.
I just got contacts last week and have been struggling with dryness, so I have been through about 4 different types of re-wetting drops trying to find the right type for me. Visine for contacts is no good, Bausch and Lomb is no good and Opti Free Renu isn't too bad! But my favorite is "Blink". It comes in a little green bottle, about 10ml worth (or .3 FLoz), and just works like a charm. It doesn't sting my eyes like the Visine and B&L do, it lasts a long time and just makes my life easier. I also put a drop in each lens before I put them on because it helps keep things moisturized.
Another trick I have for contacts is to dry my hands with paper towels when I am washing them (before I put them in). This ensures the easiest way to have lint free hands when you are putting your contacts in. Trust me, you DON'T want to have a piece of lint or hair or something fuzzy stuck inside or on the outside of your lens.
And don't be afraid to bug your eye doctor if your lenses aren't working for you. I stated below in my earlier post today, that I am on my 3d pair of trial lenses. That's what they are there for, to help you and give you free stuff! lol I asked for a new case today, and I landed up getting two bottles of solution as well-it is perfect for my purse!
