    I have similar contacts, I can use them when swimming (no diving though), shower, sauna.. you name it. I've even gone through several medical procedures (with anaesthesia) while wearing them - I asked doctors about it and there were just - "Why not?"

    They're great aren't they?

    I pretty much forget I'm wearing them until it comes to near the end of the month - can be a bit irritating after a while, but then you just put fresh ones in & all good for the next month!

    Glasses. I have a part-time job in an optician's and it's absolutely horrendous when someone comes in terrified and begging for an appointment because their contact has rolled to the back of their eye or they've slept with it in. I have no patience so I wouldn't be asked to take them out every night etc etc, hate the thought of sticking something in my eye and glasses are cheaper!

    Glasses- the idea of having to poke around my eyes to get contacts in freaks me out, even playing sports I just take my glasses off and go without

    Excactly! I've tried day contacts and I could all the time feel them on my eyes like hard rings. But these are soft and totally forgettable!

    I'm not quite sure about advertisement rules of this board but here's one link to the brand I use: http://coopervision.com/contact-lenses/biofinity-family

    I've got my subscription just from local optician, he recommended these for me and I've been using these or similar lenses for several years now. I don't remember where my glasses are No, no solutions. I wear them 24/7.

    Just ask at your opticians. I'm with specsavers, was no problem at all. Nope, you literally wear them for the whole month. I sometimes take mine out every couple of weeks for a day just to give my eyes a rest though.

    Edit - Oh and I pay £15 per month

    I have a bad short term memory so I'd forget that I have contact lenses in and leave them in all day, and might even forget to take them out at night. :lol:

    Always glasses. Never lenses.

    I like the look of glasses. They're more convenient because I can take them on or off whenever I want. I can't be bothered with lenses.
