This time I thought I'd be a bit more mature about it, watched some youtube videos and had my Mum on hand to give me advice. 10 minutes later I was just able to touch my eyeball with my finger but the damn contact wouldn't leave the finger and attach itself to my eye. Every time I attempted to place the contact in and upon pulling my finger away discovered the contact was still on my finger.
I tried again a few weeks later. It wasn't any better, still couldn't get it on. Then I spoke to my Uncle who suggested I go to the Optometrist and get him to put it in so I can feel what it feels like on the eyeball. He said it feels like sand initially (?!) but you get used to it. I can barely handle when I feel like I have an eyelash on my eyeball, I really don't think I can handle contacts.
So I started considering laser eye surgery. It's a quick surgery and hopefully little to no ongoing maintenance, however there is a risk.
Has anyone had laser eye surgery and what was your experience?
