Do you still wear contact lenses?

I wore them for years but now I only wear my glasses I can't seem to get use to my lenses anymore. I guess once you have kids you just go by what is convenient.

  • I got laser eye surgery. I was terrified at the time, but I'm happier now.

  • Yes, I wear my contacts about 75% of the time and my glasses the rest of the time. I see better with contacts (I have terrible eyes- with glasses I have poorer depth perception than with contacts so I like my contacts if I'm driving.)

  • I love contacts. I wear the kind you can sleep in and only take them out once a week to give my eyes a break. I've noticed lately they seem dry and I put in rewetting drops b4 bed and when I wake up.

  • I've been wearing them since I was 16. I love them. My eyesight is so bad that glasses give me a headache because of the gap between eyeglass lens and eye. I'm so used to having a contact lens stick to my eye that it's hard to adjust to glasses. I wear glasses before I go to bed to let my eyes breathe though.

  • I used to, but got LASIK in 2007. I love it!

  • Id love Lasik, just cant afford it.

    I wear contacts during the day and then wear my glasses in the evening time.

    I need a new prescription though, my eyes have changed and when I do get to the eye dr I might end up going to glasses only (depending on contacts cost).

  • I tried wearing contacts when I was younger, but my eyes are to sensitive and I just couldn't. I'm going to get lasik done next year.

  • I've been wearing contacts since I was 13. I have terrible eye sight. My RX is -4.50 on one eye and -5.00 on the other. I wore glasses a few months ago just to try it out. I was so dizzy I guess like another person my depth perception was all messed up.

  • ainstalshia, I was like that too. I felt sick when I tried to wear my glasses. I had to wear them for a whole week before my LASIK because you can't have contacts in your eyes for a week before your surgery. I constantly felt like I was in a rocking boat.
