    Contact lenses are great, just stay away from those that you can re-use after cleaning. I use daily ones which you get rid of after use (they're a little more expensive). I tried the ones which keep for 30 days but got nasty eye infections.

    looks like I'll go for the disposable ones, why did you try the 30 day ones, was it because they are cheaper? also, how much does it cost per month for the daily ones(around)?

    They are cheaper yes, but I only went for them because that's what I was offered at the time, for some reason they didn't give me an option. Following my visit into A&E with my infected eye, the eye doctor told me to get daily ones, so I made a request to them.

    I don't wear them everyday btw, just when I can be bothered.

    They cost 10 for a pack of ten pair.

    Actually I'm not too sure about the price because I order them as and when and I pay over the phone with my card.

    I got ones which can keep for 14 days and they are just fine. Tried the ones which can keep for 30 days and I didn't have problems with those either.

    I've heard that, but then I also believe if you wear them all the time your eyes become dependent on them, and possibly weaker.
