When I was little I was the nerdy kid who couldn't see without glasses, but his parents wouldn't let him get contacts yet. I took a dive rockin a "black diamond" like a total badass and cut my face up pretty good.
Otherwise contacts haven't given me problems now that i'm all grown up. How's the Lasik? Do you see "halos" around lights like I always here. That sounds annoying and scary if its permanent.
