Lessons I have learnt the hard way

# I should always wash my hands before putting my contact lenses in - especially if the last thing I did (and had forgotten about) was slice shallots.

# Concealer stick hurts a lot if you get it into your eyes (same one as the contact lens problem - sadly)

# Dark sunglasses are usually suitable attire when the above 2 points have happened - even if they aren't prescription. No-one wants to see your 28 Days Later impression.

# Vicks vapourub also hurts when inadvertantly applied to the eyes (minus contact lenses thankfully)

The conclusions drawn - I need to wash my hands better and stop poking myself in the eye.

Also when taking them out...
Chilli powder in the eye does make it cry.

The worst thing I ever did to my eyes was rub them shortly after applying mosiguard.

Never made that mistake again.

I had an 'interesting' experience involving the Mrs once. One of us had been chopping raw chillis. I'll leave it at that.
