It's that time of the year again where I feel like changing the frames for my glasses. I normally go through this phase every now and then. I've had my current glasses for a while now and the frame is really not in fashion anymore. Besides, I need to also check the power levels again. I've always had trouble when it comes to choosing a new frame.
Maybe I should really consider getting contact lenses. I did toy with the idea of getting a pair a long time ago but the price of the stuff alone was enough to turn me off. And the many stories I heard about how difficult it was to put on and how uncomfortable it was when using for long periods of time kept me away.
These days, with new technology comes new improvements for contact lenses. One good place to look for contact lenses would be ACLens.com seeing as how they carry practically every major brand right down from Biomedic, Ciba Vision up to Acuvue. Most of these brands come in all sort of styles. The daily disposable kind, the weekly disposable kind, the monthly disposable kind and even bifocal contact lenses which was unheard of those days.
The site is pretty informative too. One product that really caught my eye was the LensAlert which counts down the number of days left for you to change your contact lenses and also the lens case. Now, that's a pretty intelligent contact lens!
I suppose with advancements such as these in the contact lens industry, I might just finally ditch my frames and get myself some contact lenses. Imagine I could have colored contact lenses and have a different eye color everyday, just like a 'Mat Salleh'... hehehe
