I wear glasses on earlies and contact lenses on lates, I only really need them for driving but when I'm at work I'm in and out of cars all day long so keep them on all the time, also helps me read the a/c reg's from further away too so I'm sure I'm at the correct a/c without having to drive right upto it !!!.
Can't be ar$ed faffing around with my contacts at 5am and there is also a chance I might take a nap at work on earlies and I can't do that with lenses in, well not as easily anyway !!!.
I never even knew I needed glasses until I happened to go with my friend when he was collecting his contact lenses for the first time. He had the lenses in whilst driving home and I was wearing his glasses, and I was like WOW I can read that from hear and I can see this and that etc etc... and He was like - WHAT you can't even see that and you drive like a crazy b'stard and you can't even SEE
A couple of days later I went for an eye test and found I was slightly short sighted. I'm not that bad though.... -0.75 in my right eye and -1.25 in my left so it's not like I cannot see, I'm just below the legal limit for driving and can't read roadsigns as far in advance, but I can still drive without them when I have to although it does feel wierd now.
I was going to have LASIK but thought I'd try the contacts first - bloody awful experiance until you get used to it, but once you are used to stiking your finger in your eye then it's a doddle !!. Oh and Aviancegirluk, you don't actually touch your eye - well not once you can do it properly anyway.
