contact lenses

Post by Jody Rife on Sat Oct 20, 2012 9:00 am

So I bought me a pair of those supa cool colored lenses to put in when I'm getting monstered up. I was tempted to buy several different ones but just bought one thankfully. I tried till my eyeball hurt to get those things in last night. My eye still feels weird. LOL It isn't the fault of the lens I'm certain. I just have never wore contacts and thought it wouldn't be too hard to do. LOL I will now be looking up a tutorial on how to put in a contact lens,lol...I'll have to see if one really excists.

I'm starting to think I am a slow learner on everything, no including contact lens placement. tongue

I wore contacts for years Jody. Put one on the tip of your finger and look at it from the side. If it looks flared at the edges kinda like a cereal bowl then you need to flip it over so the sides come up smoothly more like a mixing bowl if that makes sense. Put a drop of lens solution in them and pull your lower lid down with your middle finger and place the lens with your index. Helps if you look up instead of at the lens or at least it did for me.

I'm going to try them again sometime. Gotta at least get one new look with them to justify buying them. ;P

The cheapy theatrical ones aren't as comfortable to wear as prescription contacts, it's kind of frustrating. I also find that some of them really constrict your vision if the iris is near opaque. That said - they take a look from cool to wicked cool, really quickly.
