I use soft contact lenses and it is wonderful! You can also these days get contact lenses if you have astigmatism, so your vision can be near perfect. Some people can't wear contacts due to the shape of the cornea but your optometrist will be able to tell you beforehand. The one VERY important rule is to clean and sterilize your lenses every day to prevent infection, and to take them out of your eyes at night, so that the cornea can "breathe" while you sleep.
