It’s been almost a month since I started wearing contact lenses. Here’s an update:
The strength of my right eye’s lens was adjusted from -4.5 to -4: a great improvement. My sight is much better now.
Incidentally, the change in strength resulted in much less involuntary rotation of the lens. The rotation (which is bad if you have a cylinder in the lens) still occurs sometimes. The final set of lenses that’s currently on order will have a slightly different shape that ought to ensure they stay put.
Getting them in and out of my eyes every morning and evening is a non-event. I get them in on the first try in 90% of the cases now. In all other cases, a second try suffices.
Not having to wipe your glasses after some rain is great.
The extra sideways visibility is great.
Not having glasses when donning your fencing mask during medieval swordfighting training is great.
