Contact lenses or Glasses

I have an opticians appointment next week to have my eyes tested, not that I feel I need to but simply because it has been about 5 year since I last had them checked - and the Mrs is doing her job very well at nagging prompting me to get them tested.

I wear glasses, and have done since I was a small lad but occasionally I drift from wearing glasses to wearing contact lenses. I normally make this change when I see a promotion in the opticians of 1 weeks free trial of contact lenses, and then I go to as many opticians who are offering this promotion and stock up on as many pairs as I can - you have to love a freebie and if it catches your eye, go for it. These were particularly useful for PT sessions and impromptu rugby games when I was in the Army.

Anyway, I am now looking into the option of wearing contact lenses permanently and I am weighing up the costings of daily disposable lenses over monthly lenses, and it looks as though I may well be tempted to wear monthly lenses.

If your eyes need corrections at all, which do you prefer - glasses or contact lenses?

I need a wife like yours to nag me. My husband knows I need to get my eyes checked but he isn't kicking my butt out the door to do it. I don't wear glasses but I know my vision is getting worse and I probably should be. I don't think I could wear contacts because the thought of touching my eyeball grosses me out.

I will prefer for glasses. This may sound crazy but I am afraid of wearing the contact lenses even though I want to emoticon :smile: The way people keep the lenses and takes out from eyes really scares me emoticon :smile:

I wear daily lenses as I might only wear them once or twice a week so it's more economical that way.

I prefer the contacts because my beautiful stunning eyes get hidden behind glasses lol j/k
But I can see much better with glasses because of astigmatism.

I'll go for the glasses, that contact really scares the ghost off me. but it's just my personal thought
