I recently had the chance to try contact lenses, for free, on a months trial.
It didn't go well. I spent ages trying to get them in and often had to get up half an hour early so I wouldn't be late for work!!
I asked for varifocal lenses and was told that wasn't a problem. It seems it was as when I tried to drive in them I couldn't see further than the front of the car.
One thing I loved about them, when I did manage to get them in, was I could see to put my mascara on.
I think I'll stick to my glasses. At least they hide the bags under my eyes. Ha Ha!! :)
