    I have worn contacts for years. I remember the first couple months, it was a time of getting use to them. It takes a while for the eyes to adjust. I would get some rewetting drops to keep on you for the first months. The drops will help keep them wet so they don't blur. Once your eyes get use to them you should be able to shoot real well. I have bifocal contacts now and I am able to hit at 20yards as well as 70yards.

    I had RK surgery done when I was around 23. I was tired of Contacts popping out or I would leave them on too long or have carry saline solution with me. If I blinked too fast, a contact would pop out. I am still 20/20 and I'm now 36. The best money I ever spent. RK is outdated now...it's all lasers now I believe. They just used a knife on me.

    i wear multifocal glasses pretty much all the time. need them to drive safely, to read, watch TV, work etc. have worn them for about 5 years. i shoot barebow and cant shoot without them. of the 3 pairs i own, there is only one pair that i can shoot with. the other 2 cause distortion and strange images and curves when i aim. having a high anchor and short draw length causes the string to contact the frame of one pair, which in turn moves the frame into my line of vision. an optometrist suggested contacts (with a distance lens) for shooting, and carrying readers for closer stuff like writing score cards, adjusting nocks, checking plungers and rests etc. have learnt to use my binoculars while wearing my glasses. i have 3d nationals in a few weeks and will be trying contacts for the first time after then. happy shooting.
