I finally decided to take the plunge and switch to contact lenses. I resisted up til now because of the squickiness of touching my eye, but convenience has won out and now I'm thinking of all the things I'll be able to do: Running without my glasses sliding down my face! Wearing sunglasses when going out! Actually being able to see what my new frames look like before I buy them! Hmm...I think that's about it; really, when sitting in front of the computer all day, it doesn't matter all that much whether you wear glasses or contacts.

It's very strange to walk around without glasses for the first time since I was 12. It feels like everything ought to be blurry because I don't have glasses on, and so it's a shock when I'm actually able to see things.

I guess the next step, at some point, will be surgery, which the optometrist recommended. However, since that's fairly expensive and I'm still a poor student, it'll be a while before I'm in a position to seriously consider it.

I've thought about contacts a lot before, but never gotten around to trying them out. How did you get over the squickiness of touching your eye? I have the same problem.

I was surrounded by enough contact-wearing people to lead me to conclude that if they can do it, I can too. I'm not completely over it...it tends to creep back when I actually have to put them in or take them out. But it can be done. I find it helps to remind myself that I'm not actually touching my eye, just the lense.

I've worn contacts for ten years and I love them. You won't regret the change, I don't think.
