Thread: Glasses or Contacts ?

  1. #1

    Glasses or Contacts ?

    How do people deal with glasses and bino's ? I am having to take my glasses off every time and its a pain

    I went to try contacts lastThursday and have spent the rest of the week poking my eyes out trying to get them in ! AARRGGHH

    The ironic thing is that it was a real cute 20 year old with half inch false nails that managed to put them in the first time ????lolol

    Stick with the contacts it does get easier.

    I tried and tried to stalk with glasses but could not get on with them.

    It is contacts for stalking for me just wear glasses the rest of the time.

    I just buy a months worth of daily disposables at a time and only oder some more when I am running low.

    Contacts are the way forward, once you get the hang of them you will not want to go back. I switched to the monthly disposables last year ( you leave them in for a month at a time- even when sleeping) absolutely brilliant - no fumbling around looking for your glasses when you get up ! Good luck with them, Phil.

    I thought about the laser side of things ? but that had BIG signs in front of it and I simply cant afford it .

    Perseverance with contacts will win the day I think .

    I use daily disposables - acuvue moist are the most comfotable I've tried. Stick with them - it gets a lot easier as you get used to them. I've thought about laser surgery, but there is always a risk with any operation, and that's what puts me off.

    I too use acuvue daily disposables. Put them in as soon as i wake up; put my specs back on in the evening. Stick with it, you will soon get the hang of it! I have been wearing contacts for 20 years! If you are a real cheapskate like me you can get a good months use out out of single pair of acuvue daily disposables!!!
