I've worn contacts since I was 12 years old. I am 20/400 and while I'm not sure exactly what that means, I do know that without my contacts, I can't even see my reflection in the mirror. My optometrist says that I'm "legally blind". The first thing I do when I get out of bed is put my contacts in and it's the very last thing I do before I go to bed. So, I suppose, it shouldn't be strange to dream about them, right?
At least once a week I dream about putting my contacts in. But the strange thing, is in these dreams, they are never actually "contacts". They're always some kind of foreign object that have no business being in my eyes. Like sunflowers. Or fabric. I'll find myself standing in front of the mirror, holding my "contact" and I'll look down to discover that rather than the tiny piece of plastic that I expect to see, I'm holding a giant flower but I try to put it in my eye anyway. Sometimes they're still contacts, but they're huge and I have to fold them over and over again to get it to fit in my eye. Sometimes they're blankets, or any number of other odd items. Last night it was a tire.
