    I tried but I really sucked at getting them in and out and never had the time to practice with a bub around.
    I stuck with my glasses and going to look into eye surgery so i can get rid of my glasses. A friend went to the Sunshine Coast to have hers done and loves it

    Sure i had it at Laser Sight in Brisbane, I wasn't eligible for just laser as my corneas were too thin so i had a complete lens replacement. Very easy op but not cheap. $11 000 for both eyes, you get nothing back as its considered cosmetic.. Dunno how much it is now as i had mine done 2 years ago. I have better than 20/20 vision, it's 16/20. Definitely happy as Larry i got it done.

    This is exactly what I do too. I used to wear contacts daily (didn't even own glasses for a few years!) but over time I've found I prefer my glasses for day to day stuff, just easier. Would love to get laser eye surgery done at some point though. I wish it wasn't classed as cosmetic...clearly whoever made that decision doesn't know what a PITA it is to live with crap vision!!

    This is the website he uses its in Singapore. He ordered on 7/7 and it arrived at home on 18/7. So the turn around is pretty fast.

    If you know you magnification in the contacts order a pack and see how you go. A few of his friends use this site also and no one has any issues at all. Delivery cost is a flat rate of 9.95 it doesn't matter how much you order. He ordered one lot to see how he went and they where fine (acuvue moist) then does a bulk order when hi supply gets low.
    I use this website too as I've found them to be the cheapest.

    Also use daily disposables most of the time. I still wear glasses occasionally if my eyes are a bit sore (eg after accidentally sleeping in the daily disposables).

    I'd still suggest seeing the optometrist first to get the right ones, then order online after that, that's what I do. It depends on your exact vision problem which ones suit, and my glasses script is different to my contacts script. The first ones I tried (that my friend loved) didn't feel comfortable to me so I was glad I didn't have a big pack of them!

    Yes absolutely second this! You can generally go and get a free fitting appointment with free trial lenses at the optometrist. I would 100% do this before ordering any online if you've never used them before.
