Thank you to ACUVUE® Brand for partnering with me on this post, and for covering my eye exam and initial supply of lenses.
My road to contact lenses started years ago, decades really. In second grade something came over me and I decided I wanted reading glasses as an accessory. Somehow I successfully failed an eye exam and left with lavender reading glasses that had a rhinestone butterfly in the corner. Did I need those glasses? Absolutely not. But my 7- year-old self was thrilled with the new possibility of wearing glasses to change up my look from time to time. My parents had no idea I purposely failed the test and I’m not sure how thrilled they were when I finally confessed to them years later.
