BYCers, This seems like a diverse group, so maybe someone here has some advice to offer. Last spring I got contacts for the first time, ever! These are soft, disposables. [Wear during the day, throw away after a week or so] I want to wear them. There are annoyances to wearing glasses. But. . . very frequently they feel annoying. either like I've got a hair in my eye or slime over my eye. Nothing earth shattering usually. they are suppose to be 'no rub.' I could see if it occurred infrequently that it might be a tear or speck, but almost every day?? How do ladies take out their contacts w/ long nails? I don't keep mine very long at all, but I'm having to keep the quite short in order to get my contacts out. Otherwise, I have a terrible time taking them out. Any secrets I'm missing? Deborah I plan to return to the Dr. in April for annual visit. . . .
