It's also more expensive the earlier you get it. But then again, I think I should seeing as I can't see what I'm typing right now without putting my head 11 inches away from the monitor.

Last time I wore eye contacts I got twatted, opened my eyes again and couldn't see. Supposedly the contact launched out of my eye.

If you are caught at a certain angle the contact may slip, slide, or fall but there are a ton of professional atheletes who wear contacts. I have noticed quite a few fights pause momentarily because of them so I believe that contacts are more or less viewed in the same perspective as mouth pieces.

No I dont fight like y'all but me and my friends used to use chokeholds to knock eachother out for fun (sorry but right when you wake up it feels good ) and I never had my contact roll back in my eye.

please realize that there is a lot of danger when doing this... no matter "how great it feels" there are many things that can go wrong when the neck and the head is not handled properly.
