I will have to agree with LASIK. Get it if you can, I am going on three years since surgery and have zero regrets. When I did hunt without the surgery I opted for glasses as my hands seemed to filthy to put them in my eyes.

Takes practice but you can definitely teach yourself to put your contacts on without a mirror. I find lifting my lid and looking right at the incoming contact works well.

Absolutely. I have to look at the contact coming in for the landing.

small case, small bottle of solution, 1 or 2 backup pairs. Clean your finger with a little water then look directly at it and pop that sucker in! Worst case scenario, I've been told saliva can work to help clean a contact lens. Water directly on contacts is a no no. I've had one pop out in the field and get dirty, just spit on it or roll it around in your mouth for a second then place it back in your eye.

Daily contacts, always bring a few extra pairs as well as glasses. Lasik on my short list.

I haven't needed a mirror for years, just a small bottle of solution, container, a tiny bottle of eye drops and a lightweigt pair of old glasses.
Super compact and lightweight.

I use the 2 week disposable ones. before my sheep hunts I just throw a fresh pair in and bring a very small thing of solution and a case and then a spare pair on contacts and small bottle of visine. I usually don't even take my contacts out and just use the visine if i feel them getting dry

I wore contacts for 30 years or so. Used the 2 week disposable for most of that time. However, my eyes changed and had to stop sleeping in them about 5 years ago. Always carried a spare pair with me. But...I just had cataracts removed and had permanent lens implants put in. It has been great!!!! Get the lasik if you can do it.
