They are not meant to be comfortable as daily wear contacts. You put them on when you are ready for sleep. Close your eyes, fall asleep, and they don't bother you.
That said, here's how they work for me. I put them on when I'm ready to climb into bed. Even after 10 years with them, I feel them when I put them on my eyes. That's because they are shaped to change the shape of my cornea. They aren't even on the sides or center. They aren't shaped to match your eye's curvature, they are shaped to change your eye's curvature. When I put them on, they are not immediately clear. I blink a couple times, and can tell they are already reshaping my corneas. In less than 10 seconds I can see as if they are day wears, but can still feel them. I lay in bed and read or watch the evening news, no problem, much like standard day wear. I've watched a movie before bed with them in. Fine. I've put them on during the day for a couple hours to tune my eyes back into focus (Infrequent occurrence when I've decided to go without overnight for 48hrs or so). They get uncomfortable after a couple hours of pretending they are day wear lenses, but that's because you should normally be asleep, not feeling and nor caring. When I wake up, I feel fine. I don't have to immediately remove them, but I do, cause its just part of the morning ritual of S.S.S.
For me, its awesome. I do all the same stuff as somebody who doesn't wear any sort of correction, whether that be glasses or contacts. No worrying about them floating off when swimming. No dry eyes from motorcycling. I got my first glasses when I was 12. I got my first gas perm contacts when I was 16. I got my first soft lenses when I was 22. I wore soft lenses until I heard Paul Harvey mention CRT on the radio. I asked my optometrist about them and it turned out he was one of the best fitters in Boise. I asked him why he didn't tell me about them before. He said, "because Lasik is so cool, that's all people ever ask about." I said, "but I never consider Lasik cause my eyes are always changing." He said, "yup."
I'll be 45 in August. For years now, I don't even think of myself as a contact wearer. Why should I? I'm asleep when they are in.
Find a doc that will talk honestly with you. They aren't for everybody, but they sure are for me.
