Ah, springtime. Sun shining, birds chirping, flowers blooming. It’s a time of rebirth and renewal.
Or not renewal, if you’re still ordering more and more pairs of the same contact prescription you’ve had forever.
With the new season come new attempts by Mother Nature to slowly wear your patience and sanity. Here are three reasons spring is basically the worst if you have contact lenses.
1. Spring = pollen = allergies = ☹
Some people are lucky enough to not be affected by allergies and we’re soooooo happy for them. For the rest of us, April showers bring May flowers bring itchy, watery eyes that are made worse by contacts. All the tearing and the rubbing can cause them to fall out or get lost in my eye.
2. Spring cleaning will ruin you
Be productive they said. Get your life together they said. Clean your apartment they said. But no one said anything about dust clouds getting in your eyes and nose and causing irritation and watering and sneezing when you try to tackle spring cleaning. Nothing like losing a contact because you rubbed your eye and having to find it on a dusty floor. Gesundheit!
3. You’ll be skipping all those outdoor trips
As soon as the weather gets better, everyone all of a sudden wants to do everything outside. Whether it’s a multi-day music festival or taking a weekend camping trip, you’ll be staying home because dealing with contacts and multi-day events and limited access to bathrooms with mirrors and the whole thing is just. too. much.
