    Soft

    I am 35 years old and I have been wearing soft contacts since I was in the 6th grade. It is very interesting how thin and smooth they are. I was able to get used to it right away - touching my eyeball, balancing the contact lens on my finger, putting it on my eyeball, removing...

    Anyone else wear hard contacts?

    I have worn them for years. They are the only way I can archive good vision. People cringe at the thought of hard plastic in their eyes, to me they are the best invention ever. Am I the only one still wearing them?

    I Love Circle Lenses

    I'm addicted to them seriously. They're like crack lol. I love them because they look more natural than regular American colored contacts which can look too fake at times. People always think that this is my natural eye color and in pictures your eyes will look so amazing. They...

    Only A Week Ago...

    I would have never thought that I would be able to put contact lenses in my eyes. Last Saturday was the second time I had ever tried contact lenses. The first time I tried, the doctor put them in my eyes and my first task was to take them out. I tried for an hour, but with no...

    I Can't See

    I started wearing glasses when I was 8, and contacts when I was 13. I would never dare step outside without my contacts in or my glasses on. My contacts prescription strength is 5.75 in both eyes, so I'm pretty darn blind.

    Someone please help me.

    I've had contacts for about two weeks now and no one will help me with my problems. The left eye was bothering me, so my optometrist gave me a different fit. Now my left eye feels fine and my right eye is killing me. I constantly get lint on the lenses. The only way to avoid...

    Changing Your Eye Color

    Recently, I've been very intrigued by color contact lenses. Just the fact that you can change your eye color and give a different vibe is so amazing.  I think a person's eyes play an important role in communication and is one of the first thing I notice when I talk...

    Beware Of Quicklens.com.au

    Well guys, on the topic of contact lenses, just thought I'd let you know never to buy contact lenses online from quicklens.com.au. They fail to tell you when you purchase that they are an overseas company and that you will not be provided with their provider number and so will...

    Wearing Contacts

    I have worn glasses, no line bifocals for about 10 years now and last year tried multi-focal contacts.  They were great, but I still needed glasses for reading or close work.  I just visited the eye Dr. and got my new Rx.  I have a new set of glasses...

    Just Got Them

    So, I finally got over my fear of sticking my finger in my eyeball. It took my about 4 hours to put them in for the first time, helped by the very nice, patient lady at the optometrist. Whenever I had tried them previously, my eyelid would rebel and start blinking, no matter how...

    I remember when I first got them. I went to school the next day and was amazed by the bricks on the wall outside the home-ec window. Or whatever class it was. I could see every detail in each individual brick and it amazed me. Kinda freaked me out in a good way... I love contact...

    Used To Wear Glasses

    I switched to contacts when I was about 14, and I've never regretted it. They're better looking imo, and more comfortable. (I forget I'm wearing them most of the time) That said, I wouldn't be totally against going back to glasses if it was something that a girl preferred. Girls...

    I'm A Big Kid Now!

    I've been wearing glasses since I was 15. I'm 22 now, and I've finally been assimilated into the world of contact wearing. The eye-doctor was the first one to try to get the contact into my eye--with much difficulty. Three days later, I tried to take them out. After 1-2 hours...

    Ha! I remember getting contacts. I was so happy that I could shed the glasses and look normal again. I remember the eye doctor. The building looked like a cabin and the doctor was very nice. Once they ordered the kind I needed, I went back to get them put in. I had never...

    I wear contact lenses sometimes, I know I look more beautiful without them but I don't feel so comfortable with them :/   My eyes get so dry and tired and I end up having a headache... but I think it's because of the lenses, not because of me.

    Me and my older sister look really similar.

    The main difference is that she wears glasses. I wear contact lenses to avoid us looking the same!

    Fashionable

    Contact lenses are way more fashionable than eye glasses. Glasses will make your eyes look shrunk and smaller. And that's definitely a no-no. I have friends who wear eye glasses. I think it's cute while they're wearing them. But once they remove it, I think they look tired or...
