Do you wear contacts or glasses?

I tried contacts once, but the florescent lights made my eyes hurt. I have a stigmatism so I had to get the really expensive gas permable lens. Now I just wear glasses when I am on the computer or driving at night.

I wear glasses. I can't wear contacts. I have a stigmitism that makes getting a contact prescription hard. I hate having to wear glasses.

that is exactly my problem. i tried contacts once, and i was very uncomfortable. i don't have to wear my glasses full time though. last time i bought glasses they were over 300 dollars. people should have better insurance for eye care.

I wear contacts during the day and only wear my glasses when at home or just watching TV. I have astigmatisms in both of my eyes and the contacts work really well for me. I couldn't imagine having to always wear my glasses. I used to hate doing that.

I had lasix surgery about 6 years ago after wearing contacts for 10 year and glasses of 10 before that. I love waking up and being able to see what time the clock says!!!
