I'm sorry about your troubles! I wore contacts for about 5 years in high school/beginning of college, and while I enjoyed not wearing glasses, I was never comfortable. My eyes were always dry and uncomfortable, and didn't reliably stay in focus. I had myopia AND astigmatism, so I needed the double (touric) lenses which made it even more uncomfortable.
After a while, i found myself forcing the contacts less and less, and to the point where I just found myself always wearing the glasses beacuse they were reliable and comfortable.
I actually just last week had lasik eye surgery, and I am so impressed! My eyes were really dry at first, but they corrected both the myopia and astigmatism, and I have none of the problems that the older generation of lasik patients have experienced (i.e. halos, night driving issues).
If your corneas are suitible for the surgery after your current condition clears up, I'd definitely consider the lasik! It was expensive, but since I had saved up the $, it was a wonderful present to myself.
It's so strange to wake up and be able to see
