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.

  • It’s been six years since we lost our good friend, to me he was very much like a brother. Genuine, caring, funny, and such a family guy. This weekend we took time to remember. My heart feels heavy, I’ve never been good with words during times of grief but this weekend encouraged me that lots of words aren’t always needed. Our actions and the intentional moments mean so much. #domliveson
  • He makes me smile, the real full mouth all the teeth smile.

Thanks again @thepieshoppe & @sumacridgewine for having us come create the other night. That’s my kinda date night. Thanks for the snap @gracefullyglamblog
  • It's a crazy thing what can happen when you start doing the things you love but also might scare you. I've been creating content on this space for five years as this past year has presented some of the most incredible opportunities. This latest one with @coquitlamcentre has been so fun! Excited to share that I am their next and final 'Girl In Focus' -- head over to their feed to see the first video that was created.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Also, sending a big kiss out there for all of you, for being encouraging, inspiring and simply for just being you. If there's something on your heart that you have been wanting to start, but you feel like you don't know how.. maybe you are scared.. maybe you are worried of judgement. Trust me, it's worth putting all that aside and just trying. Just starting. Because in all honesty, starting is always the hardest part.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
PS my outfit is from @rw_co, shoes @callitspring at @coquitlamcentre — I couldn’t leave without them! #girlinfocus #workingit #stylebyCQC
  • Who snacks more, you or the kids?

I used to think it was the kids, but since getting Invisalign I've realized more and more how much I love snacking, as I am willing to take my liners in and out every time. #worthit

A new snack I've been trying out from @patiencefruitco are their Active Blends, my favourite blend being the Seasalt & Pepper. Check out my stories to see all three flavours. *sponsored #patiencefruitco
  • We donut want to leave @pacificsands today, but it’s time to roll out.

  • I opened up the new My Only Bottle Loop from @sodastreamcanada and the girls were PUMPED. Sophie suggested bringing our SodaStream FIZZI to school so that she can make sparkling water there (see stories) and I suggested that we make it at home in her new My Only Bottle Loop and she can bring it with her. The 500mL bottle is the perfect size for traveling to and from school, just grab your sparkling water bottle by the loop and scoot out the door. ⁠

PS the My Only Bottle is also dishwasher safe (tell me I’m not the only one excited about this!) and available online at sodastream.ca or at your local London Drugs retailer ⁠
