First off, my eye sight is awful. my contacts are -3.5 (so you can compare my blindness to yours if you wear contacts)
I just want to hear stories of people that have worn contacts while doing a thru-hike.
I wear daily contacts (throw away a pair every night) I'm wondering if I should invest in contacts that you can wear for up to two weeks at a time w/o having to take them out. I have taken multiple trips for 4-5 days at a time and putting my contacts in isn't that big of a deal but if I plan on hiking for about 6 months strait I can see it being a problem. I took a three day trip in freezing temperatures and the contacts actually froze, which really sucked.
As of now I plan on taking a few weeks worth of contacts and mailing out packages periodically to pick up in towns.
I am just wondering if anyone has stories of what they wish they did with their contact situation while hiking the trail.
PS-I have never worn glasses before and do not plan to
Thanks in advance!
