Yes, I have tried using them to no avail!
I could neither get them in or out.
A friend worked at an optometrist and she came in the morning and put them in, however I just could not get them out and I tried and tried...after about 10 days I gave up and decided I would have to go on wearing glasses all my life!
Not such a bad thing nowadays as it hides bags under eyes and i find such great glass frames!

When it comes to some things, I can not get my head around them.
e.g. contact lenses, it seems to me to un-natural.

I just wear my Glasses, and anyway they are a fashion statement.
Yes.. I wear them for 'special occasions' or at theme parks.. so I don't loose my glasses
No. I have good eyesight
Yes and I LOVED them. I always thought I would puke if I ever tried to use them . . . . then my extreme dry eyes and my HRT would not allow me to continue using them. I was very sad :(((

Yes, I wore contact lenses for quite a few years. Then I got sick of getting conjunctivitis all the time, no matter how much I cleaned them. Now my frames for my glasses are so thin that you barely know that I am wearing them. They almost look rimless, but they aren't, so they are very natural looking.
No. My eyes are still good - for now. Even if they weren't, I doubt I'd use lenses. The though of touching my eyes freaks me out!

Aha.. . that's what I always thought too . . .but you actually don't touch your eye . . . I was fine as soon as I realised that.
by Rice
Whether you touch it or not is a technicality for me - LOL. Either way, it's too close for comfort, I say.

Having long fingernails, it really didn't work for me. I tried once with a temporary pair my optometrist had recommended, but was so worried I'd scratch my eyes out that I opted for laser instead!
Yes,I have tried to use contact lenses,I found them uncomfortable, and could not get used to them,and also the cleaning of them is very important, I did drop it from time to time, and it was a pest trying to find it.
Not for me as I suffer with dry eyes.
Oh, it's such a curse, isn't it?!! :(
by Rice
me too and I thought I was the only one with this also!
by Finy
I do have glasses but I have never tried contact lenses. I don't need to wear my glasses too regularly so I don't see the point in trying to use contacts.
by AJ
No I would not stop myself from blinking if my finger was coming towards my eye so not for me.
No, as I'm sure I'd keep loosing them! I'd had cataracts on both eyes for a few years now, but had them removed from the right eye last week. When I have the left eye done, I was told I'd still need reading glasses, but I certainly won't mind that. It will be lovely having a new pr of frames!
by Miro
Oooh yes! You must treat yourself for being so brave and getting a new lease on sight. (LOL)
by Rice
Yes, I have worn cosmetic contacts as well as prescription contacts. I tried using the contacts that can stay in your eyes for 30 days and you can sleep in them but found that they seemed to dry out and require a lot of eye drops so I returned to putting them in and taking them out daily.
I have stopped for two reasons, apparently my eyesight has improved and they are no longer needed, AND, I had to have a different strength for each eye which got confusing at times.
