Many of people, like me, have less than perfect vision and this requires correction by either glasses or contact lenses. I have had short sight for as long as I can remember and I was never happy wearing glasses. I felt that they impeeded many things, and I found a whole new kind of confidence since I started wearing contact lenses. The two types of lenses I am aware of are hard contact lenses and soft contact lenses. I was given soft contact lenses by my optician when I first asked for them, and I was told that soft lenses would be the better option for me as they are easier to wear and healthier for the eyes. I have never tried hard lenses myself, but I ... Read the complete review

I have worn soft contact lenses for quite some time now, I have always used either the fortnightly lenses or more recently the monthlies. There are so many reviews on here dispersed amongst the soft, hard, general topics, I am just going to give you a couple of pointers / checklists here, which you may find helpful when choosing or considering lenses: What are they? Soft contact lenses are made from a silicone hydro-gel which are suitable for wear sometimes over night, sometimes for a month at a time, or sometimes for simple 8 hour or daily use. They are durable enough to be cleaned, removed and reinserted but are soft and comfortable to make you feel ... Read the complete review

Bored with or hate wearing glasses? Thinking of wearing lenses but not sure if they are right for you? ....... I discovered the joys of contact lenses approx 15 years ago shortly after realising that I was actually fairly blind and needed some help with my sight - but found that wearing glasses was very uncomfortable and not very attractive!! (I am very short sighted - and get the lovely jam jar effect with glasses where me eyes look like little dots behind the glass). I tried various types of lenses including the hard ones which apparently some people prefer (I don't know how they possibly could because they felt to me like someone had thrown sand ...

I first started wearing contact lenses at the age of 18. I started off with the small hard kind that I found incredibly difficult to get used to and very high maintenance to boot! As a result, over the years I?ve tried and failed to find a pair of comfortable glasses. So, eventually when my budget allowed, I started to investigate other lens options starting with soft lenses that were replaced annually, upgrading to monthly disposables and eventually about four years ago to daily disposables. Even though I?ve worn glasses since I was around 11 or 12 years old, I never did find a pair that I could get on with and ... Read the complete review

I have been wearing glasses for a number of years now, and was becoming increasingly annoyed when I went out of having them cracked against my nose as people inevitably knocked into me. This and the fact that I kept putting my glasses down and losing them all the time is what made me decide to go and see the optician about getting some contact lenses. It was also quite near to Christmas, so I thought a nice pair of new eyes for myself would be a treat. Before you start wearing any type of contact lenses, whether you have used them before or not, I would advise going to your optician to get a consultation, to check whether you can / still can wear them ...
