My Experience With Daily Contact Lenses
4

I never would have thought that I would wear contact lenses. Growing up I always loved the look of glasses and told myself that if one day I needed glasses I would always rock them. Whelp, life isn’t always that simple. After wearing and rocking glasses for a couple years I decided to start playing soccer again, and guess what, glasses aren’t really suitable for this.

This post is in partnership with IRIS visual group, who are my eye care professionals that I use regularly. All views and opinions are always my own.

Believe it or not I played my first season half blind. I thought that I could see “good enough” and was fine with just not wearing my glasses. It wasn’t until I started talking to other team members that I learnt so many of them wear contacts.

After multiple conversations with a bunch of the girls on my team I decided that daily contact lenses were the best fit for me. I knew that I still loved wearing my glasses, but really did need something for playing sports and exercising. It’s better for my eyes and for everyone else on the team, ha!

Naturally I went into IRIS to see what they also thought as they have been so great at helping me. While I feel like I am always bombarded with different ads online of cheap contact lenses I learnt so much at my appointment and realized how important it was to get fitted for my contact lenses. Who knew!?

I booked an appointment with one of the Abbotsford IRIS optometrists and she was able to check the shape of my eye and pair me with the most natural and best suited contact for my eye’s specific needs.

We chatted through why I wanted to get them and how often I would wear them and she also agreed that I should try the daily contact lenses first as I would only be wearing them once a week. Had I been thinking of wearing them more often then I was advised that for the cost of daily contact lenses verses longer terms ones it would be in my best interest to get a longer lasting set.

I’m so so happy with my decision to get more information on contact lenses, and I think my team is too. My first game out on the field with my contact was a whole new world. I’ve even started wearing them more than just at soccer games and am thinking about switching from daily contact lenses to even monthly. I’ll be asking about more information on those at my next visit. 

If you’ve been thinking about getting daily contact lenses for yourself, I’d highly advise you to go in and see an optometrist. I’ve heard amazing things about IRIS across the globe and of course love my local Abbotsford IRIS so they would be my first choice.

  • Those are the exact contacts I used to wear (before lazic). I tried the long wear ones but found they irritated my eye much more. It’s so important to have an open honest conversation about your eye needs so they can help you find what’s best for you.

  • “When’s the last time you did something for the first time?” Those were words spoken to our group before starting our Tough Mudder course this past weekend in Whistler. Holy moly guys, I was nervous getting started on that course. Let’s just say... nervous shits are real 😅😂🙊 but that’s what makes it so great. Doing something that literally scares the shit outta you. We all pushed through, all 16km and 25 obstacles and it was FUN, hard but really freaking fun. Even though I’m hobbling around today, dang foot cramp (and literally sore all over) I’m so pumped on doing something new, pushing myself and having such an amazing group of friends tackle it together.

PS our men of tough mudder not pictured but SO equally appreciated.

  • Opened up my second Maple Box today and loving the natural and organic products that I am able to discover. The @hollowtree1987 candle and @sealuxe scrub are two of my favourites already.

I’ve loved how each box has introduced me to both self care and wellness products focused on creating healthier lifestyles. Head to @maplemagazinecanada to discover more info on ordering for yourself. Spring box available, while supplies last (and last I heard it was limited) #ad #maplemagazine #mapleboxcanada

  • Looking at the calendar like.... it can't actually be Father's Day this week can it? For anyone still looking for a gift, I have a deal to share! @sodastreamcanada currently has a bundle promotion running on their website until June 16th where you can save $20 when you bundle a FIZZI (your choice of colour), Soda Press Co. Pink Grapefruit flavour and the 'Love Your Planet' Bottle. For everything our Dads do for us, the least we can do is get them a gift we know they’ll love. See direct link in my stories for promotion details!
.
I also created a super yummy drink for you all to try. Inspired by Father's Day, I put together a mixed drink using my SodaStream FIZZI + their Pink Grapefruit Soda Press Co. flavour to create a Pink Grapefruit and Gin Cocktail (or mocktail) recipe. Here's how to make it:

Ingredients:

Flavoured sparkling water using 2 tbsp of the Pink Grapefruit Soda Press Co. flavour by @sodastreamcanada
1 ounce gin (optional)
Sliced grapefruit
Rosemary Sprigs

Directions:

Use your SodaStream to turn regular tap water into sparkling water in just a few seconds. Once carbonated, add 2 tbsp of SodaStream’s Pink Grapefruit Soda Press Co. flavour to sparkling water and mix. Fill glass to the top with ice. Pour in gin (optional), then fill glass with Pink Grapefruit flavoured sparkling water. Enjoy!
