Fall is a season of change and bolder colors — this season I will be making a change myself. Going from an everyday glasses wearer to ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses.
Now, I know making the switch to contacts may not be that big of a deal, it can be for some. I’ve always been the type of person who schedules yearly exams and makes sure to take care of my eyes, so this year was no different. I decided to visit the Target Optical® center for my exam.
Like I mentioned earlier, fall is a season of change and I decided to make a change myself. I’ve been wearing glasses for years — I think I was 5 or so when I was first prescribed glasses. In high school I changed from glasses to contacts and loved every second of it. But once I started nursing school — the long hours of school and clinicals led me back to wearing my glasses 24/7.
Why The Change?
With the holidays around the corner, I like to create bolder makeup looks, use false lashes, etc. With glasses it’s nearly impossible to see bold eye looks — and it’s also a bit annoying when your falsies hit the rim of your glasses. It may sound a little vain, I promise I’m not. And I also want to be able to enjoy wearing sunglasses without not being able to see.
I’m all about easy — so when I found out my local Target (which is my favorite place) was offering optical services, I was thrilled. I mean, I’m already at Target at least twice a week. #noshame I made my appointment online thru the Target Optical® website — it was so simple and fast. I made my appointment on a Thursday and had it set for the next day at 3 pm — talk about FAST.
The eye exam was a breeze, I was in and out in less than 45 minutes. I asked for both a glasses and a contact lens prescription, I opted for ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses. After talking to the optometrist, we decided they would be a great fit for my lifestyle. Because I am not new to contacts, I didn’t need a one-on-one lesson with the optometrist, but it is something they offer along with a pamphlet for new users.
Since I’m making this change, get ready to see even MORE makeup looks from me — and best of all, I’ll actually be able to see clearly while taking these pictures.
