when they've gone round the back of your eye?
or get a biro, pop it all out, remove lens, pop eye back in.
top and bottom, than stick your fingers in it until you are crying and swearing, do big blinks, eventually it'll drop down/you'll catch the edge of it
and I'm sorry, but it seems you've got everything
or work its way slowly into your brain.
One or the other.
I'll be very upset (and partially blind)
i was wearing coloured lenses, and the girl i was dancing with punched one out of my eye. I might have her number somewhere if you need?
put half of it back in to see if it still worked, just REALLY hurt
to remove broken contact lenses from the back of her eye :(
She's been wearing them for decades, apparently the old plastic ones were absolutely horrific.
They're absolutely fine. And they float on a layer of fluid. Which is better for you eye than flexible monthly/disposable ones, which soy directly on they eye. Maybe /really/ old lenses were cack, but I've been wearing this type for two decades*, now. Cheers.
*Not continuously, ho hum. But I did sleep in them overnight by accident for the first time in years and years. Was fine.
which soy? *which sit
cease your disinformation
(My last three opticians have been lying?)
Especially like Epimer's "massive run up"
when the lens goes past the "equator".
I fear for you
Couldn't sleep last night worrying about this
has anyone got a good chant that's sure to get thewarn's attention*
*chant must not include a visual aspect, just in case.
livin rooms, bedrooms, dinettes*, oh yeh....
Now we play the waiting game.
*what even is one of these?
hopefully you've caught his attention though
after just reading through this thread I will NEVER get contact lenses. Just reading about this problem has proper turned by stomach.
just stick a couple of eyedrops in and look around a bit until it centers itself again that normally works
oh this was yesterday never mind
it would have snuck under the seal of warny's eye and been sitting on his brain like a tiny yarmulke ever since. Rest in peace warny.
or he is, one of the two
I'm going to Brussels in May*, anyone got any idea what I should do with my time there?
(*true, but only for a weekend and we've got a pretty good idea already, but happy to entertain suggestions)
I'm getting worried now. Should I text him?
lets remember him fondly, and get the moderators to hand over his login password to me as he would have wanted
you know a bit of grunge, maybe something like Nailbomb, a bit of death metal. has anyone got any recommendations?
are why I can't wear contact lenses. Gives me the heebie jeebies.
how is thewarn, did he get it out ok?
sleep well, sweet prince.
Got my first pair in the late 80's when I was about 17 or so, the old hard type which are virtually obsolete now, and was advised by the Optician to wear them for about 30 minutes at first increasing by the same amount each day in order to get used to them. On the second day I met up with some friends at a party and, because it was in vogue at the time, I ended up taking some acid with them then completely forgetting the lenses until about 3 hours later when my eyes started to sting. Cue huge LSD induced panic, desperately trying to get them out whilst my eyeballs were growing fur, dripping blood or turning into globes of liquid energy and sliding about my face etc. It took me about an hour to finally get them out but it felt like a fucking lifetime when I was convinced they were stuck in my eyes forever.
And next someone who did pretty much get his contact lenses stuck in his eyes forever, a local legend where I grew up called Cody. Pretty much anyone I ever speak to who was living in Aylesbury around that time remembers Cody, although not always for the best of reasons, and he's taken on almost mythical status for several reasons, once of which being the time he kept his contact lenses in for a stupid length of time. This was well over 20 years ago so I can't remember the exact details but it was something like over a month, back when you were recommended to wear them for 8 hours maximum. His eyes looked absolutely fucked towards the end, just an angry bright red, but he insisted on keeping them in until eventually he went to remove them to relieve the pain and couldn't as they pretty much fused to his eyeballs. They were removed by his doctor in the end but the shortage of oxygen had caused some horrible bacteria growth and probably other nasty stuff. Amazingly he didn't lose his vision.
for those of us who are too busy to read two
(Either choose the best one or combine the best bits of both)
