Win an iPad Air 2 with Specsavers

Specsavers asked you whether your contact lens habits were truly revolting or strictly hygienic. Read some of your dos and don'ts below and answer a simple question to be in with a chance of winning an iPad Air 2.

Some had impeccable routines

Washing Hands

"I wash my hands for 30 seconds, use paper towels to dry, and then clean the lenses without fail. I know it can be a chore, but when threatened with sight loss, it puts things into perspective!" piggypoo


Others were disgustingly honest


"When I was exclusively using dailies it caused a lot of arguments in our house! I had a bad habit of taking them out in bed and leaving them on the bedside table, which they glued themselves to overnight so they had to be routinely chiseled off. Dh called it my 'contact lens graveyard'. I'm disgusting." Trinpy

"Worst habit is if one gets knocked out and about, I put it in my mouth and put it back in my eye - have also been doing this for 30 years." Andcake

And then there's folk whose lens care is just plain weird


"My mum once rinsed her contact lens in her beer…" workadurka


WIN! One lucky Mumsnetter will win an iPad Air 2.


Competition closing date: 20 April 2015
