Aye yai yai – Eye, Eye, Eye
Why are your eyes bugging you?
Have you ever been driving and then all of a sudden there’s just all these “Blurred Lines?” No, we’re not talking about the super sexy Robin Thicke serenading you from the passenger seat. We’re talking about actual blurred lines. Like, on the road.
Yep, your vision is incredibly important. After all, you wouldn’t want to crash the car with Robin Thicke in the passenger seat, right? Right. But have you ever stopped to think about why your peepers are bugging you? You might keep blaming your red, swollen, itchy eyes on allergies. But at some point you’ve got to open your eyes to the truth: contact lens care is essential for healthy vision!
More than 80% of contact lens wearers in the US think they’re taking proper care of their lenses. But guess how many actually do? Only 2%! So what should you be doing to ensure that your eyes stay sparkling? According to PourThatOut.com, your solution could be the solution! Always pour used liquid out, and start fresh when you remove your lenses. Oh, and don’t even think about using tap water instead. Ick!
Keep waking up with swollen, itchy eyes? The Pour That Out Campaign reminds us that when getting ready for bed we should take out our lenses before wiping off our makeup. And the moment you wake up, before you put on your makeup – put your contacts in! Don’t forget that your cosmetics can also be a source of irritation. Make sure you toss your mascara after three months to avoid a nasty infection.
So there you have it. While beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, your vision needs to be your number one priority! If you missed it — make sure to get the facts from our fab content series on everything you need to know to keep your eyes healthy! And of course check out PourThatOut.com for even more helpful tips!
