How bad does your eyesight have to be to get contacts?
I'm sick of wearing glasses and I got curious :P

sexy boy
well you can type so there not that bad
but people chosse to were glasses or contacts
so there no worser one

you can get contacts anytime it's a matter of choice

Unless your wearing coke bottle lenses i think you could get contacts. Of course you may qualify for the laser surgery and not have to wear either.

bad enough to need to wear glasses full time

If you wear glasses and your eyes are healthy you will be able to wear contacts. The cheapest place i know is Specsavers who also give you free trials . Thats where i get mine.

it dont have to be that bad! anyone who needs glasses can wear them!! They may feel hard to put in at first but after a while you get used to them and wish you'd tryed them before. But if you feel you just cant get used to them check out the designer glasses they have some really really nice ones!!!

atleast -0.75 dioptres in each eye

As far as I know, If your eligible for glasses, you can get contacts too.

You can wear contacts whenever you want as long as you need them.

your optomotrist ( as a proffessional ) should be determining this situation . good luck .

Smiley face :)
I think if you need glasses you can have contact lenses. Don't think it has to be particularly bad. I know how you feel, glasses can be so annoying! But I don't like the idea of putting something in my eye.... Anyway, your decision.

* * Princess * *
If you wear glasses you can have contacts. My eyes weren't that bad at all when I started wearing, I wasn't even bothering with glasses at the time. I think my eyes were like 0.75 or something. Sometimes Specsavers do free trial lenses so have a look out for those. If you think your eyesight may not be that bad your optician will be able to give you daily lenses for social wear for a few hours a day. If you wear glasses constantly you may be better with monthlies.

You can get contacts if you wear glasses.

Anyone who needs glasses can try them - I say "try", because they don't suit everyone's eyes. I've worn contact lenses of different kinds for 40 years - a few problems a long the way, but overall pretty happy.

BUT, if I was starting out again, I'd definitely look into laser surgery - it might seem expensive at the outlay but you'd save a fortune in lenses, solutions and opticians fees over the years. My current total annual costs are about €700!

Away With The Fairies
I have been trialling contact lenses for about a year now. I still can't find a pair I can get on with - either they hurt my eyes or everything is blurry or I just can't see in them! Don't assume you'll just be able to wear them. But I hope you're luckier than me!

sorry just cant make out the last 6 words...any chance of doing them in upper case?

There's no limit, you can get them if your prescription is only 0.25d.
However, with some prescriptions you get better vision with glasses than with contacts.
Check with your optometrist for his advice.
