anyone have a stigmatism and wear contacts?

Posted by   + Show Post

Ive been wearing glasses for a long time, and I really hate it. I also have a pretty bad stigmatism in both eyes. I heard that makes contacts pretty uncomfortable. Im trying to decide if its worth it. Anyone wear them??

They have special contacts for astigmatism - I don't wear them anymore because I'm lazy :) But I wore contacts from 17-20 without any problems.

I've been wearing contacts for about 2 years now and I have a astigmatism in my left eye (A pretty bad one). Its not uncomforable I would say!!!  I struggled with deciding whether to get contacts or not but its worth it.

I have very bad astigmatism and wore contacts for several years. Eventually I switched back to glasses, since my eyes kept getting infected.

My boyfriend does. His contacts are very expensive though. He hasn't worn glasses in years.

I have slight astigmatism and have worn contacts for 11yrs. I wear Air Optix Day & Night.

If I wear my contacts for a long time they can get dry and uncomfortable but besides that I never had any issues
