Contact lenses while going for camping

18 posts in this topic

Is there anybody here who loves camping? I am crazy about camping, and would manage to find time for it on every vacation. But, I cannot enjoy the scenery to the maximum because I'm suffering from myopia. I am lazy to carry glasses to the camping site. I have bought a new pair of contact lenses from an eye clinic in Edmonton. Is it safe to use contact lens during camping? Do you people carry glasses while going on camping? Is it safe to wear lenses for the whole day? Please give some genuine reply.

I wear soft contact lenses most of the time.  I have worn them camping in Quetico park and the Boundary Waters canoe area.   They work fine.  Just be careful to wash your hands before handling them, bring a spare pair or two, and also backup glasses.

I wear mine like 12 hours or a little more.  They are the daily wear, replace monthly type (acuvue).   There are also disposable lenses you throw away each day, and ones you can wear for weeks before taking them out and replacing them. 

I have been satisfied with my daily wear lenses while camping.  

You might want to have something over your eyes like sunglasses or safety glasses while walking in the woods or chopping or something where you could get hit in the eye.

Original post was not spam.  You do know what spam is, right (besides mystery meat in a can)?  

 

I take posts, even from newbies, at face value.   Now, what is the point of your post?

The original post was the definition of spam. Do you know what spam is?

 

Quote

Forum spam consists of posts on Internet forums that contains related or unrelated advertisements, links to malicious websites, trolling and abusive or otherwise unwanted information.

 

That post was submitted as an attempt to gain a "link" from this site to some eye clinic page. The purpose is to gain links for page search engine optimization. I'll be happy to fill you in on it if you want to know more.

I ignore the links unless relevant.  The post certainly was relevant.  So far as I know the link wasn't to a malicious page, trolling, or abusive, or unwanted.  

 

Paranoia runs deep.  Into your mind it will creep.  

 

And you go posting almost two months after the fact.  

 

All you need is a meme in your post and you would be doing your thing.

You obviously know nothing about internet marketing.

So, what is the marketing hook to this thread?   Getting clicks for some place in Edmonton?   Then it was a poor job.

No not clicks.

 

Search engines like google try to determine how much authority your site has on a subject. Lots of links pointing from other sites with related keywords tells google that those other sites are linking your site because it has authority. The more of those good links you have the better your site will rank. 

 

It is considered a "black hat" SEO tactic that could get your site penalized and de-ranked if Google catches on to what you are doing. The problem is it is probably not the site owner who is doing it. Did you notice the broken english? A lot of page owners don't know how to do the work of search engine optimization so they hire that out. The cheapest way to hire it out is off shore, usually someone in India. They take your money, get your site ranking well for a while but when Google figures out why it is ranking, it gets knocked down in the rankings.

 

In other words, it is spam.

OK, it is spam.   So the whole point was to get the link on posted on  hso somewhere so Google would think that meant something? 

 

OK, far out.

Yeah, your right again as usual. How on earth could I ever misconstrue this as sarcasm?

The "ok, far out" was meant to express surprise or bafflement, not sarcasm.   Sorry for the confusion.

    • Way to go team!! I sure took the avg score down with my jake
    • nice story, fishing has a way of easing the pains we have. even when we hurt like crazy when done for the day we are looking forward to the next outing.
    • way to go, guys yep, the toms not about to give up even though its close to closing time have seen several strutters the past couple weeks and heard gobbles yesterday while fishing
    • great job. makes it 5 for 5 for team 5 congrats on a nice tom, 57 and that willl give our team score a boost
    • One More Cast      Photo by:  Roger Abraham   If any of you out there are regular readers of my tales, you have followed my recent struggles with back and knees.  I can’t put a name to this drive I have to be on the stream as of late.  It borders on obsession. I guess in my mind if I am healthy enough to fish the world is right with me and I am not getting old and feeble.      Today I was a witness to that I am not the only one.  Lots of anglers and hunters live to go out into the outdoors. .  It is what drives them.  It makes them feel alive.  It is their passion.  I told my fishing buddy Abe today my thoughts.  I told him how I was feeling a little old.  I guess my 60th birthday coming up next month makes me feel mortal.  Abe laughed and said I was a young buck compared to him.  Abe turns 76 this year.     Abe told me tales about catching big trout in tiny streams in Wisconsin and out west.  The twinkle in his eye when he reminisced I had seen before in many trout anglers.      We fished a stretch for 2 hours.  I sat down and rested often.  Abe kept on fishing. He got hung up in a box elder branch and lost a lure.  Abe told me box elders trees were his nemesis when he fished.   He asked me which tree was my kryptonite.  I told him, "ones with branches."  We both had a chuckle and continued fishing.   I thought to myself this guy is really driven.  I hope I am like him at 76.     We got to the vehicle and Abe wanted to continue fishing.  Abe’s waders sprang a leak earlier and he fell in the water a couple times.  He was quite wet.  He wanted to change in to dry clothes before we continue.  Abe peeled off his wet shirt and there were two things stuck to his chest.  He could tell by my questioning look he needed to tell me what was up.     Abe told me he had been having heart problems lately and he was supposed to be wearing a heart monitor.  He left it in the car because he was afraid of getting the electronics wet.  Here I have been whining about being old and the guy I was fishing with left his heart monitor in his vehicle.      Abe reassured me that he was in no danger and he could continue fishing.  I started brainstorming on a place to fish where it was not so hard walking.  Now that I knew he was not as healthy as he looked I wanted an easy place to fish.  I knew the place and it was upstream 5 miles.     We arrived at the well manicured field.  It looked like a golf green.  I picked the area because the farmer kept sheep and goats on the land and the weeds and brush were gone because of the goats.  We walked and fished.     Abe told tales of the old days and of fish lost and landed.  I walked a little forward to fish and looked back to check up on Abe.  What I saw when I looked back scared me and I immediately asked Abe if he was ok.  Abe was laying flat on the ground face down.  I thought the worst and he could tell by my face.  He told me to calm down.  His back was acting up and he needed to straight it out and that was the best way to do it.   We fished a little bit more and he took a photo of me.  He liked the lighting. He told me it captured the essence of trout fishing.  He did not have a camera.  I let him use mine.  He was not camera savvy and needed an impromptu lesson on how to use it.   We drove to his car and we talked about our love of the outdoors. We shook hands and headed our separate ways and promised to fish again soon.  As I drove home I smiled and thought about how I am going to be when I am 76.  I hope I am like Abe and my eyes still twinkle when I talk of chasing trout and I am still driven to make one more cast.
    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
