    Default OT: contact


    Dang it. I've got a contact floating somewhere on my eyeball and I
    can't find it. I can feel it move around, but it hides whenever I
    look in the mirror. I know this won't last forever, but it feels like
    it.

    Forget the health food. I need all the preservatives I can get.

    That used to happen to mom now and then. Maybe some saline drops and a
    lot of blinking? Mom use to pull outwards on her eyelid and that seemed
    to help her locate it.

    Happened to me once. Turned out it had fallen out already. I poked and
    poked at my eye until it bled. Went to the hospital where they were able to
    tell me... no contact!!!

    Hope it turns out ok.

    Frustrating ain't it. It happens to my wife once in a while and I have
    to help her find it.

    Got it. Finally used a flashlight and that did the trick.

    I've decided that contact companies need a new option - a colored band
    on the rim.

    Coloured ones have been available for years, they're great and a lot
    easier to find in that situation.
    I just wish I could still wear them.

    I decided against colored contacts because I like my own eye color (a
    hazel green). That's why I said a *new* option. Some people like me
    prefer clear but that colored rim would certainly help locate the
    danged thing when it starts floating around an eyeball.

    You know you can get colored contact lenses in prescription lenses... :-)
    They can be fun.

    Some brands produce lenses that are colored a *very* pale blue, virtually
    clear unless it's on a white surface. They do not change the eye color,
    but make the lenses easier to find.

    Good to know! I'm using Biofinity, which is unbelievably
    comfortable... unless of course it's on a part of the eye where they
    shouldn't be for a prolonged amount of time. :/

    You can get tinted ones that just enhance your own colour

    I used to wear contacts. Began wearing them in 1959 starting with standard
    hard lenses, and I think I went through ever permutation from those to
    multi-focal lenses. However, since I stare at a computer screen most of my
    waking life, even the multi-focals just don't cut it now, and I don't want
    to have to wear glasses on top of them.

    that used to happen to my dad, years & yeas ago with his hard lenses.
    many a time, he'd call me about 11:00 pm to come over & retrieve it
    off his eye.

    I wear reading/computer glasses over mine and it's great. The way
    they are set up, I guess the top third is clear because I can keep
    them on and see undistorted distance too so I'm not constantly putting
    them on and taking them off. Makes grocery shopping very nice! I can
    read fine print on the boxes and see clearly down the isle.

    I tried them on and decided against them. Didn't like what they did
    to my eye color.

    I did try that for a while, but I'd often forget to have the glasses with
    me, which didn't work out too well. :-)

    I have a special pair of glasses that I use for work. The lenses are
    divided in thirds. The top third has a focal point for the distance to my
    monitors, the middle is for distance, and the bottom is for reading at book
    distance. This lets me glance upward to see the screens and down to see the
    kehyboard or anything else on the work surface.
