I usually wear glasses because I have poor eyesight and well, contacts are just really expensive. They are expensive to buy in the first place, and they are so easy to lose! You have to be super careful to make sure they stay in, and then on top of the contacts you have to buy the fluids and solutions, it's just an expensive ordeal, so I tend to only wear contacts on special occasions.
Well, I think that's going to change now. I had always gotten contacts through my optometrist with my insurance discount, which wasn't much of a discount. I've discovered that you can get contact lenses online for much cheaper. The site I've been ordering from is 1800 Contacts and I can get my brand there (Acuvue 1-Day) for way cheaper than at the optometrist's office. On top of that, there is this new 1-800 CONTACTS Coupon to get $20 off and free shipping. I like 1-800 Contacts because they make it easy to shop by brand and put your prescription in, and they seem to be cheaper than other online retailers of contact lenses.
With this coupon I'll be able to afford to wear contacts any day I want! Now if I could just get used to the sensation of poking my eyeballs every morning . . .
