My experience as a patient

Amanda Rungis - Wednesday, September 27, 2017

Funny story! Yesterday I walked 1.6km (a mile) in my patient’s shoes.

I haven’t worn any contact lenses for about a decade. But some new daily disposable ones out came and I thought I'd give them a try.

First, given it's been a decade, I struggled to put them in. It was hilarious. I wish I'd videotaped it. Probably would have gone viral “How may optometrists does it take to teach an optometrist to put in contact lenses?”

Second, once they were in, I couldn’t see at thing. I discovered I'd put the right one in the left eye and the left one in the right eye. My eyes are very different. Yep that would do it, can’t see a thing!

No problem. Having realised my mistake, I thought I'd swap them over. But given the decade that had past since I last attempted the feat of removing contact lenses, I struggled to get them out.

Yay! Finally, I got them out but put them both in the same container. Now I didn’t know which was right and which left. No problem they’re daily disposables, I’ll grab a new pair.

So after all this I managed to get the correct lenses into the correct eyes. My vision was OK, but courtesy of my dry eye it felt like I'd rocks in there. I must have managed 10 minutes before I exclaimed to Sarah - “How do our patients do this?” She said “I never found them comfortable. That's why I wear orthoK!” Doh! ~ Amanda
