I first started wearing contacts a little over a decade ago after I accidentally dropped my glasses into the toilet for the millionth time. I'm proud to say I've yet to drop a single contact in there, although there have been a few close calls!
I'm still waiting on my enhanced contacts though. It's almost 2010, yet we don't have any that shoots lasers or even gives us X-ray vision? What are today's scientists even doing? Oh well, if you have an eye exam coming up, you might want to print out a coupon for a pair of
free Acuvue Colors contacts (this second link seems to be down for the time being). They may not give you super powers, but I guess getting them for free is the next best thing.
