Do Not try this at home!!
I don't know why I tell on myself when I do really dumb things, but as a public service to you, my dear readers, I will share.
I paid a whopping $8 for contact solution to replace the cheap $4 stuff that dries my eyes out. I perused all the solution, and decided on Clear Care No Rub solution. The box reads...no it doesn't...but I was sure I had chosen the #1 opthalmalogist recommended solution! Anyhow, the side of the box DOES read:
DO NOT use flat lens case. Clear Care ONLY works with the special lens case provided.
DO NOT remove lens from cases until at least 6 hours later. The solution needs time to neutralize. (that's important)
DO NOT rinse lens with Clear Care prior to inserting lens into your eyes. If you want to rinse lenses, use a sterile saline like Softwater Saline. (this is where the cheap $4 solution would've been handy.)
DO NOT squirt Clear Care into your eyes.
So I'm not a directions person. I wasn't a directions person. I now am IF it pertains to something that I will be putting in my eye, or any other orifice, I might add.
I got out of the shower, as is my routine, I put my contacts in right away. Before lotions etc. so I don't get things in my eyes that hurt.
So I hop out, towel off, and grope my way to the cabinet. (I am BLIND!)
I open up my fresh bottle of solution that I gave my left arm for, rinse my lens, squirt some solution into it, and stick it into my eye.
Stomp!!Stomp!!HAAAaAAAcrapthat burns!awwwoooocrap!Stomp...AWWW.aWWWoooouch.jeepersthat hurts.Stompstomp.hooooo.ooowww.stomp.
My eye is of fire!! I am trying to get it out, but it feels like your tongue feels when you lick on deodorant in my eye. It is dry, and it hurts so bad I can't tell if I've got it out or not. I think I do, Brookelyn confirms it, and I stand over the sink as tears pour from my eyes and snot from my nose....like a bull. All the while, and I chuckle now, Brookelyn and Trae are watching me stomp and yell, sans clothes, around my bathroom.
Ingredients: 3% micro filtered hydrogen peroxide, .79% sodium chloride stabilized with phosphonic acid, a phosphate buffered system, and Pluronic 17R4 (a cleaning agent)
DO NOT put this stuff directly into your eyes. My eye still smarts, and still feels like I rubbed deodorant into it when I blink. I am afraid to try it following the directions...
