How is that possible?
I don’t think it’s mundane - I think it’s amazing. It would be the only story I ever told about that guy. “Hey have you met my friend bob, he’s had the same pair of contacts since we landed on the moon!”
To not have lost or damaged them seems almost beyond belief.
Does he drive an old Volvo, shop at Aldi, listen to Public Radio? Curious as to what else someone does that wears the same lenses for longer than I’ve been alive. After a year or so mine were pretty shot. I went to daily wear disposable - and loved them. Now I have got LASIK and am dreading needing reading glasses at some point.
I can’t imagine there are many people vying for taking his place. I’d ask an eye doctor. I’m sure they’d be fascinated.
And like others have said - he should see an eye doctor for the other stuff anyway - and to get this century’s technology which is better for the eye.
