I have awful eyesight. Not only am I very nearsighted, I also have a weird issue where my eyes don't like to focus (even though they are perfectly able t0), thus causing lots of headaches whenever I spend too much time reading, typing, sewing, etc. Anyway, through the many years of needing glasses I have been bouncing back and forth between glasses and contacts. Because of yet another issue, I have been almost exclusively wearing glasses the last couple of years. But, I tend to keep a back-up supply of contacts for "special" occasions. In my ever increasing efforts to become more environmentally friendly, I have been wondering what is the best option. I don't ever hear people really talk about this. I am assuming glasses because of the long life they have, but I really don't know the whole process of making them versus contacts.
Any thoughts out there? I imagine it will always come down to personal preference, but maybe there is such a thing as "green" glasses and contacts?
Gift Update: I am making steady progress. Some have been moved down the list while others up!
