My vision is... meh.
I wear glasses whilst driving either (a.) at night, or (b.) in unfamiliar places; I also wear them now in movie theatres. I think my eyesight has become a bit worse since my last set of glasses in spring '04, especially in my left eye (which has always been better than my right). It's irritating, though, when I can't see stuff off in the distance, or when I'm wearing glasses and they slide down my nose.
To that end, I'm wondering if contacts might be a good fit for me. I've heard people say that they'll never go back to glasses after them, and that they really can change your life for the better. (I'll assume the person from whom the second sentiment came had much worse vision than mine.)
I'd like to hear peoples' perspectives, experiences and so on with contacts vs. glasses. What do you use? Disposables vs. more permanent ones? Is it an expensive endeavour? Let's hear what you have to say.
