    I don't remember it being blurry. There was a bit of an adjustment to get used to though.

    Daily will help you get used to them and your eyes will get the break every night. You could probably ask them for longer ones if you want to change later. I started with fortnightly ones but they had to be taken out every night.

    I use daily disposables now and prefer them to my previous lenses (monthly lenses), because I'm lazy and find it easier than changing the solution in the lens case each day.

    Also because overnight lenses irritate my eyes too much, I didn't need ones that could be worn overnight.

    Daily lenses usually work out to be a bit more expensive than monthly lenses, butI still prefer them.

    And yep, it feels really weird being able to see everything without glasses on!

    The other thing I love about contacts that I forgot to mention is being able to wear sunglasses, without needing to buy prescription sunglasses.

    I have worn contacts for 17 years now. I hate wearing my glasses and only wear them at home at night time for about half an hour before I go to bed.

    The dizzy feeling is because your peripherals are no longer blurry. ITs like a fish bowl effect because your mind is trying to adjust to the sudden complete clarity. It takes a bit to get used to. I get that feeling when I put my glasses on because my peripherals are blurry after an entire day of being clear...hence why I only wear them not long before bed (it makes me queezy to look around to much with my glasses on).
