MalibuPam, maybe you should try different brands. I have been wearing contacts for years, and I've used the same brand since day one because the other ones just don't fit the same in my eye. Some contacts are also softer than others, and I would recommend some that are not too soft because I find that the softer they are, the trickier they are to put in and also to remove.
I'm a very happy contact lens wearer for many years, and I highly recommend it. I think contacts make your life so much easier, and you'll feel great without glasses.
So don't give up on it, and I suggest you try different brands and types. I use Optima FX, to me they are the best, they are soft but not TOO soft, they stay put and they're nice and comfy. The worst by far has been Acuvue to me, way too soft and wiggly.
I hope it all works out for you! Let us know!
