A friend at work recently got some contacts that you're supposed to be able to leave in your eyes for a month without taking them out for sleeping, showering, or anything.
I dislike glasses for the sheer inconvenience, which is also why I've avoided contacts. I don't want to have to worry about putting them in every morning and doing the whole solution ritual. I've considered laser surgery, but the slow degradation, possible night vision affects, and the fact that I'd still end up needing reading glasses are my main concerns there. With contacts, you can update your prescription to keep up with the degradation of your eyes.
Anybody have any experience with these new contacts? Are they too good to be true?
