I’ve been wearing contact lenses almost daily for the past few years. As anyone (apart from me, apparently) knows, this is terrible for your eyes. My poor ol’ eyes were going red and veiny and were constantly irritated, which is why I’ve been wearing glasses so often lately – as they really needed a break! I’ve gone through various contact lens brands over the past ten years and have experienced the same problem with all of them.

…And that’s about when I was contacted by DAILIES TOTAL1. With a revolutionary water gradient, DAILIES TOTAL1 lenses will keep your eyes feeling a whole lot more moisturised than other contact lenses. I was a little nervous that my eyes might not ‘take’ to contacts after such a long break, but they popped in far easier than anything I have ever experienced!

After being flown to Sydney, put up in a beautiful hotel and a quick trip to the optometrist, myself, along with four Australian bloggers were taken out to dinner on the 47th floor of the fanciest restaurant I’ve ever seen (let alone eaten at!). After only getting four hours sleep the night before I was certain my eyes would flunk out and I would remember why I went off contact lenses in the first place.. Turns out that the water gradient is better than I could’ve ever expected! I stayed up until 1:30am with no eye problems whatsoever and enjoyed six delicious courses and a cocktail the size of my head along the way. And at the end of the night I was able to simply throw the lenses in the rubbish, rather than fiddling around with various cases and fluids. Score!

As part of this collaboration with DAILIES TOTAL1, I’m going to be sharing five different late-night experiences so I can really test out these lenses and see how they work for me. I’m a definite member of the Stay At Home Club, so am really excited to push myself out of my comfort zone and to see how my new lenses hold up! I hope you enjoy following along!

This post was in collaboration with DAILIES TOTAL1, but (of course!) all opinions were my own. If you want to purchase the contact lenses head into your nearest optometrist for a fitting. Or alternatively you can find out more information at www.morecontacttime.com

    • Me either!! The optometrist was telling me how wearing contacts every day for extend periods of time can make veins grow over the middle over your eyes – and they never go away! Lets just say I’m gonna be a good gal and wear my glasses twice a week! x
