I've been wearing contacts for 13 years & I love them.
The kind I have are extremely permeable & you keep one pair for a month. But there us no hassle with them because you can wear them 24/7. They're called Day & Night; you can sleep in them.the only time I take them out is when I have a cold (VERY important - colds affect the mucous layer on your eye & contacts will damage it when it's compromised like this), weekly for an overnight break & if something's irritating. Which is rare.

I just started wearing contacts an I love them. They do take a lot of getting used to, but if you wear them on a daily basis you'll be fine. You do have to watch though, because some eyeliners will get on them. Good luck :)

I refused to wear contacts for years because my first experience was a huge disaster. I have a pretty bad astigmatism and my contacts would move whenever I blinked and would dry out my eyes something fierce. Now, eight years later, I decided to try again and I love them. My toric lenses don't shift like my old ones did and I can hardly feel them. Usually I put them in, then my drops and then start on my makeup. I swear by the Blink Contacts eye drops.

I wear both but prefer my contacts!! I love them and wear them eveyday. Go see ur optometrist and try on the many color choices they have. I guarantee you'll fall in love! My eyes are brown but I wear green contact....

I've been wearing contacts for over a year now. I love my contacts. I hate my glasses. the only time i wear my glasses is when i'm just being lazy around the house. But i'm comfortable with putting them in and taking them out. it doesnt bother me. Try it.

I love contacts!! I have Been wearing contacts for 6 months and i can't go without them. I sleep with them and Nothing happen. It takes 5-7 days before I take them of and I know it's dangerous, but I can not bear to take them out

Nissirin K. - this is dangerous and you are going to get corneal ulcers. Professionals tell you to not sleep with them for a reason. Do not mess with your vision health it is not worth it. I speak from experience as an optometric assistant.

I have had contacts since I was 8 and now I'm 14. It's not too big of a deal you just have to be dedicated to taking then out every night and putting them back in every morning because sleeping in then is soooo bad for your eyes. Honestly for me, getting contacts was worth it because I hated my glasses so much.

Yes definitely find a brand that suits your eyes. I used to wear Air Optix but switched to another brand that retains more moisture.

I really wish I could wear them but I had a bad first experience. I actually ended up scratching my eye. :( thank god I only have to wear glasses for reading and driving at night.

I've never really had a problem with contacts unless they get blurry. But when that happens, always make sure you're carrying a travel size solution. Doesn't really mess up my makeup if you really open up your eye and just take it out.

Contacts are amazing. I've worn glasses for as long as I can remember.... Once I got contacts I felt all brand new! To me they aren't a lot of work... But I'm also looking into LASIK. I love not having glasses.

It depends what look I'm going for. Contacts are okay once you get used to them but they can be uncomfortable if you wear them for 12+ hours. Glasses for me are a pain though because I don't like seeing outside of them you know? You have to try for yourself

It depends on you. Don't switch for other people because contacts take lots of responsibility. I like mine because they don't get in the way.
