    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
    Are there any risks like becoming blind ir getting an infection from them?
    How do they feel compared to normal contacts when in the eye?

    No more than the daily ones that I know of. They feel much more comfortable than the daily ones

      Contacts, but only when I know I'll need to see things in the distance.

      I'm almost 22 now and still have good vision. Is this unusual? I'm worried I am going to randomly wake up half blind one day O.o

      You should not wear them a whole month. it is for a whole WEEK only, or a month when you wear them no more than 14 hours and take them out every day.

      Sometimes I use glasses sometimes contacts sometimes nothing. I'm always taking glasses with me just in case. I wear contacts when it rains too much, or when I'm going out or playing sports.

      What do you wear, glasses or contact lenses?

      And why do you prefer one over the other?

      For me I think its crazy that you put an object directly on your retina. So I prefer glasses.
      There isnt an option for both so i cant complete but yes i alternate for both and i dont put anything on my retina.

      Case for contacts;

      a) 360 degree perfect vision without the need for cumbersome specs,bright,sharp,beautiful.

      b) Specs..well i wear my specs sometimes for a day or two or just in the evening to save on contacts but more importantly, to promote good eye health and prevent issues which may occur due to over use of CLs.

      That is highly unlikely at your age. Have you had an eye test to assess your acuity?
