i was asked by my eye doctor to start wearing glasses as i had a power of 1.5, but i really hate to wear it, it just isnt comfortable that i am not using them properly, wearing them only when in front of the computer or reading books, not otherwise, whereas i am asked to wear it all the time hope many of you must be wearing contact lenses out here...how comfortable are they, can you share your views, it would really help me a lot in deciding... thanks

I wear glasses and think i look good in them, but i have also worn contacts. Once the contacts are in and you get used to wearing them you can barely tell they are there. I find they are comfortable. I just don't recommended sleeping in them.

how about putting them in to our eyes and taking them off, can we do it as often we like or are there any procedures you follow to put them or take them away?

You can do it as often as you like. It recommended to put them in in the morning and take them out at night. At first i had a little difficulty getting them in because i kept wanting to blink, but after wearing them about a week i didn't have a problem.

Hi Sharay, I carry my reading glasses with me because I need them to read but other then that I dont really need them. I really dont think contacts would be very comfortable for me. Cheers, Tianna

I wear glasses and I think I should really wear them all the time BUT I am so very vain. It doesn't help that I work from home and wear them around the house when I should have really taken them off. Need them for driving, shopping. I am so vain that if I remeber I take them off if anyone comes to the door, and i won't wear rthem when i walk the children to the school and back.... daft really as I think everyone has seen me with my glasses on. Should wear them as they would hide the winkles around my eyes which I hate!!!! I don't really like eyes so I couldn't wear contacts, shame as I hate the colour of my eyes and I could get some coloured lens A freind of mine told me that her Gran only wore her glasses for driving when she went out of the town she lived in. She said her Gran told her she didn't need them around town as she knew the roads!! Don't panic you lovely english people this was over 20 years ago so you are very safe as she was in her 70's then.

I dont even find it comfortable wearing glasses when i am doing my chores at home, i just feel like something has stuck on to my nose and i have to get rid of it as early as possible and i am never going to wear it outside my house
