Does the army know that you require glasses? if not your just building up problems for yourself. During training i wouldnt recomend wearing contacts, you can get glasses off the internet for as little as Â£15 their no fashion statment but if you happen to put the ironsite through them on the range its not the end of the world. If you just wear contacts youll have problems when your in the field there isnt time to be pissing about putting them in and taking them out. the worst that will happen is that youll be called 'joe 90' or 'speccy twat'.charlie27989 said:In April I start my basic trainning at catterick but im not sure wether to take contact or glasses or even both.. As the contacts i have to gotta take out before you sleep..

What he said. If you are not a biff with your lenses you'll work out when best to wear them and when not.Sentinel said:Take both - and make sure that when you do go on exercise you have your specs with you. I take my contacts out before I sleep and it isn't a major problem.

The Americans have had a laser prog for ages. If you trained up a couple of army docs and actually bought the latest Allegretto laser (there's a recession on, so say Â£300,000 for state of the art kit), it needn't be expensive, and if you stuck to surface treatments for low prescriptions it needn't be (overly) risky.SparkyG said:
