    Ooh no I can't be doing with any of that fiddling with my eyes.

    I like my glasses - they make me look intelligent.

    I remember the first time I got contacts - I actually had to hold on to somebody to walk for a while as it felt so wierd so suddenly be able to see properly!
    It's wierd isn't it- totally freaky feeling knowing that you can see WITHOUT glasses!

    I admire folks who wear contact lenses as I only have to think about eyes and my eyes start watering!
    Fortunately I only have to wear spectacles for reading or close up work so it`s not a big issue to me.

    Good for you, Josh!

    I've been wearing contacts since age 12--hard lenses were the only ones available. Took about 3 months to transition to them. I wear RGP (Rigid Gas Permeable) lenses now--can't wear the soft ones. Glasses just don't work well for me--I need trifocals! Never managed to adapt to bifocals, much less trifocals!

    RGP lenses are the contemporary version of hard lenses, Josh. They do allow for better flow of oxygen to the eyes, hence the "gas permeable" tag. They work best for eyes like mine that never settle down--the vision becomes progressively worse if I wear eyeglasses or soft contact lenses. And soft lenses dry my eyes out even more--not sure why.
