Has she ever worn them before? There can be a bit of a learning curve so, if not, I'd advise her trying them out and wearing them for a while at some point before the day itself.

:this:

Last time I tried contact lenses, it took me 10 minutes to get one lens into one of my eyes, another 15 minutes to get the other one in (still in the shop) and then I couldn't get them back out after getting increasingly frustrated over the course of a further half hour, and had to sheepishly ask the woman at the shop to pinch them out, which she did within 30 seconds.

They're not for me.

That’s very similar to my experience.

That's also exactly my experience, but the feeling of having 'proper' vision and not having to wear glasses was so amazing that I persevered and it wasn't long before I could get them both in within minutes; and taking them out couldn't be more trivial. There's no doubt there's a learning curve with them, but it always felt worthwhile to me.

I think I look better with glasses and I haven’t found a compelling use case for contacts, so I didn’t bother trying again.

0.001 is better than 0, I guess.

This story sounds eerily like our sex life.

For contacts or sex with Gaz?

I need an answer by Monday as I’m booking it then. I think we’re down to 10 at the moment which is an annoying number :D

Kinda a long story. One thing is that China is buying all of Cambodia.

Another is that my income from SavyGamer has been completely fucked since the Brexit referendum result, and I kinda need to get a proper job now.

After a 30 minute sesh on Elite Dangerous VR made me feel all sorts of queasy last night for the first time ever, I'm starting to think this might not be such a good idea.

I'm hoping that it was just the laggy graphics caused by my aging CPU that was the main problem :/

I'll still give it a go, worst comes to the worst I can rip my headset off dramatically and demand to be escorted from the game zone, Crystal Maze style.
