If you have poor vision (hello partner — so do I!), contacts can be your saving grace. The peanut butter to your jelly. The Romeo to your Juliet. The Angel to your Buffy.

Buffy and Angel forever. Spike who?

Unfortunately, you're bound to run out of 'em at some point or another.

When do you run out of contacts? Right before a super important event! For example, I didn't realize I was down to my last pair of contacts until four days before my three week vacation last year. Haha!
