Are over the counter eye drops safe? Is the liquid clear or crystals and fibers in it normal?

I was wondering how can I order contacts without having to go to a doctor? I wear glasses amd have since I was 10. Ive never tried to get contacts before and I dont know what the presciptions would be. I tried to order contacts but I don't know my numbers or anything. My eye doctor told me it would cost me to get my numbers and that I would have to.get the contacts there. I wouldn't be able.to just get the numbers and leave to order them. I just want to get them.cheaper. Any suggestions?

Google says they'll make Google Glass available for prescription wearers later this year. It will be interesting to see whether multifocal wearers will be able to adapt to them, but I'm willing to try out the single-vision version. Sounds pretty cool!

Do you have experience with people who have Sjogren's syndrome?  I am very sensitivity to natural and indoor light especially at work.  what kind of eyeglasses will block some light.
