Six reasons you SHOULD consider contact lenses.
I’ve had terrible vision for my entire life.
It’s something I had well and truly come to terms with. I’d happily embraced my four-eyed nature.
But that doesn’t mean it didn’t annoy me from time to time.
Like a few weeks ago, in a bout of #fitspo mania I went for a jog (claps for me) only to have my glasses slide down my sweaty nose and hit the deck. Hard. Hard enough for me to have to blindly make my way home.
As I canvassed the internet, I made the executive decision to try contact lenses instead. So that my next workout would still be painful on the hips, but a little more easy on the eyes.
And it was. During my next run (complete with contact lenses) I felt like pulling a Braveheart and screaming FREEEEEDOM as I jogged across the park.

After this revelation, I’ve gone on to discover that a whole lot more can be done (and done better) with contact lenses. Here are six of them.
In a hot kitchen, being able to read the cooking method without creating a mini-sauna around your eyeballs is the best. There’s no fear of glasses fogging up when you’re wearing contacts and you don’t have to worry about anything sliding off your face into the pot of soup you’re stirring.
Putting on makeup while wearing glasses is obviously impossible, unless you’re going for the reverse panda look in which your entire face is made up except your eye area. For the record, we do not recommend that. Applying your face with contact lenses, however, is a dream.
Having full and proper vision means there’s no accidental eyeball jabs with the mascara wand. And you can actually put on the right amount of bronzer because you can actually see when you’re starting to look like an Oompa Loompa.
3. First date.
If your first date goes well, you can expect a little mouth-on-mouth action at the end. So it’s best to make the landing zone as free from blocks as possible. There’s nothing less sexy than kissing someone and in the process, having their skin smudge your spectacles.
