I haven't got experience with both, so I can't vote. I would say glasses though, contacts seem very painful to me, but of course I don't know

I wear glasses sometimes too (at lectures mainly) but no contact lenses. I probably wouldn't be able to put them in my eyes too (either??) and it also takes a lot more time...

I wear both and definitely prefer contacts.  I didn't think I was going to be able to wear them either but somehow I managed and got used to it. I tend to use my glasses when I have alot of computer work to do, but other than that I wear my contacts skiing, hiking, going out and so on.

My contacts are disponsable soft extended wear contacts. They are made out of silicone (allows eye to "breathe") and you can leave them in while you sleep. They won't injure your eyes at all. In 30 days, you take them out and throw them away (bio-degradable). I highly recommend them...you would LOVE them!

Ok...now I feel like a salesman.

I wear my glasses all the time, and I've heard so many terrible stories of people losing contacts in the back of their eye and things like that that it's put me off completely.  Plus glasses are so nice nowadays, with the designer frames and all.

Contacts all the way.
As for what they feel like to wear... they don't. Once theyre in you don't know they're there. That's the point of them.

You don't actually put your finger in your eye. You just drop them in, the solution sucks them into place, it's unwise to do any poking. And when you take them out you just lightly brush it and pinch. Not your eye, the contact lens, and you can't really feel that either if you're doing it properly.

It's impossible to lose lenses in the back of your eye, there is a seal around your eye so theres no chance of you having lost contact lenses floating around in your head, lol. They can hide under the lid, but with a bit of blinking they make their way out eventually, and it doesn't really hurt, just a bit irritating for a while.

I've been wearing contacts for about 6 years now, and I can't imagine not having them. I love them.

Unfortunately I have developed an astigmatism (not lens related, just something that runs in my family it seems) so it's hard to read without lenses that correct that (mine isn't bad enough to go to that expense just yet), and my eyes are quite sensitive so I have to use specialist solution and containers. But they're still very comfortable and easy to use.

Contact lenses all the way! I hate glasses. You can't lie down in them without them digging into your nose, you have a constant blurry frame around your vision, and smudge marks - grrh, I hate smudge marks.

GLASSES!

I work in the optometry industry, I handle probably upwards of 300 pairs of glasses per day, and we all spend a lot of time going "ooh that's pretty" or "I want that frame" or "I wonder what that would look like on me".

This is the pair of glasses I have at then moment:

I currently have clear lenses in there but I'm about to get lenses with a blue tint put in, and I'm getting clear lenses put in my second pair of glasses, which look like this:


I love my glasses, once you find a pair that suits you it's hard to take them off.

Coz, my sister worked in the optometry industry for years in Australia too!

I personally don't wear glasses, except sunnies, or contacts, so I don't really know.  But my friend wears contacts and finds them irritating to his eyes and a pain in the a** on work-sites!

I also agree with Vic that glasses are sexy.  For example:

Do you all agree?

I almost got that exact pair once. But I wasn't 100% that they suited me. So I stuck with my old frames. I've had these frames for 4 years now I'm desperate for some new ones, but my usual optician only really caters for old fogies. Now I've changed and they have loads of lovely designer frames, I just need my prescription to change so I can get them.

I prefer glasses for myself.  My mother once cut her cornea with a hard contact, and that made me rather contact-phobic.  Plus, I can't stand anything in my eye, not even air.  Also, my glasses help hide the puffiness under my eyes.   However, I take them off when I take pictures or act, because I have yet to find a pair that really looks good on me.

My husband is pretty much the same way, although he has such beautiful eyes, I wish he could wear contacts.  That's the same reason I prefer Elijah in contacts.

it dependes on the occasion,and the place,if you're staying home you don't have to wear the contacts!
Contacts suits more when you go out,at work,or in party...etc!

But its mainly a personal choice,
I choose contacts,glasses makes me look older and ugly,so i wear them at home only!

Not the most flattering photos, and in the second one I'm in a bath robe (Allan took it) but oh well.
