Contact lenses

I got contacts today for the first time in about 6 years. I used contacts before but I stopped because my eyes were too dry. I have a slight astigmatism. How long does it take to get used to the feeling of something on your eye? I love having contacts.(so much easier the glasses) but the feeling of something on my eye is bugging me.

  • You shouldn't feel them at all. The only time I have problems with mine, is the car with the a/c or heater on.
    A few times now & then, when I fall asleep, take a nap in the middle of the day.
    But they should not bother you, at all..
