Dear Anonymous --and by Anonymous, I mean the person who commented on my contact case letter,
I have to admit, I didn't quite understand what you meant by the 1-800-CONTACTS people sending you a really nice contact case. Aren't all the free cases pretty much the same? #5 plastic, two caps....the only difference I saw was some co-branding on the caps. Granted, the ones that come with the contacts or with my saline are a touch nicer than the ones I get at the doctor's office, but beggars can't be choosers.
Then I reached into my stash of free contact cases and pulled out a new version from 1-800-CONTACTS. I don't know how to describe it, but it's really freakin' nice! There's some sort of edge on the caps that prevents dirt from getting inside or moisture leaking out--whatever it is, it's sturdier than what I'm used to in a free case. Color me impressed!
(and it doesn't even have a Wal-Mart ad on it)
So, I have to admit that you're right. There is at least one really good type of contact case out there. I almost hate to recycle it so soon, but these bad boys are only good for so long. Still, I hope that that type of case trickles down to me at some point!
Thanks for pointing it out, Anonymous!
