I've been wearing contacts for 7 years and the difference is dramatic. I think my peripheral vision even increased! Although better than glasses there are a few drawbacks. I get really dry eyes and sensitivity to light. They also tend to roll up into my eylids if I somehow get bumped in the eye.

I tried to get laser eye surgury but I am not a good candidate because apparently I have enormous pupils. The Dr. says technology will probably be good enough to do it in 6-18 months... so I guess I'll try then.

Since laser eye IS a bit pricey and not even a certain thing, as I found out, I highly recommend contact lenses. I buy mine for a fair price at Shoppers Optical and a friend of mine gets a different brand for even cheaper at Wal-Mart...yes Wal-Mart.

I'd say go for it... Just like you I found glasses to be a pain in the butt. Contacts were not only less distracting in game actions but I truly believe they give superior vision on the ice.
