Contacts

I have both contacts and glasses. I wear the glasses most of the time so I can see far away, and take them off to see up close.

With the contacts, I have to wear reading glasses to see up close. I wear the contacts when I am playing in the water, and may lose the glasses.

Once I got over 45 or so, I had to wear glasses either way.

Long term concact use has led to eye irritations in the past for me, so I limit their usage.

I was leaning towards lazy easy extended wear, that doesn't sound like a lot of fun

I just tried them. Took me 40 minutes to get one in and another 10 minutes to get it out. Screw that. I'm gonna get the Lasik surgery .

I wore them years ago, dayly *sp wear, I rode my Harley all the time , they would dry out, and had a bad habit of getting trashed and passing out in them , I was wondering if the extended wear ones were better

That is what I had, and would not change them when I was supposed to.

My fault, and maybe they will work for you if you take proper care.

I didn't and paid the price, being dumb, you gotta be tough, and all of that.

I am pretty tough.

Bingo.

Sleeping in them gave me dry eyes, and led to problems.

YMMV.

Go to the general store and price reading glasses. You'll need them with the contacts.

I missed a free guided pheasant hunt on a fancy hunting preserve one time  because I slept in my damn contacts one time :banghd:,

 

And there's not a lot of pheasant hunting around here :dismay:

Have to try different contacts too, I finally found a kind that you can wear for extended periods of time that don't dry out. Only time I wear my glasses anymore is in the spring when allergies flare up. I know a lot of people that had Lasik done and love it, but I still don't trust it lol
