How in the hell?

This morning, on-board the 7:00 am OSH-UNST (or whatever the acronym is), I observed a young woman remove from her purse - a small bottle and a small container of some kind, and what looked like wetnaps.

She opened a wetnap, cleaned her fingers and then opened the bottle and squirted liquid on her hands. Then, she turned sideways in her seat, faced the window and opened the smaller container. She took one hand, held open one eye and with her other hand, took what I now realized was a contact lens and used the window as a mirror to insert the lens into her eye. The train wasn't moving yet. She repeated the process for the other eye.

Then she put everything away in her purse, blinked a couple of times, and went to sleep.

Now that, that was impressive but all I kept thinking was, "How in the hell?"

How did she get to the train without being able to see?

I wonder if she's supposed to wear corrective lenses for driving. Well, I guess you can chalk it up to another bizarre activity seen on the train.

Perhaps her vision is fine enough to get onto a train - mine is but I need glasses to drive and do my job.
It was the oddest personal grooming situation I've seen yet.
