    I know many people can't touch their eyeballs because of a squeamish eyeball thing...
    Can you touch yours?

    -No liability for injuries that occur whilst trying to touch eyeballs, please touch with care and clean fingers!-

    Yes, but it makes me feel a bit squicky. :cry:

    Wore contacts for a while, so I had to learn how, but quit wearing them because I couldn't stand poking myself in the eyes every day.

    ...how random...

    Yes, I can... but whether I will is another matter

    yup, do it all the time, just for fun mainly! although I once had a conversation where we once decided that the worst torture ever would be to be strapped into a chair, head held bolt upright, and eyes forced open, and then have a needle moved very slowly toward one of your eyes from about 2 metres away... mwahahahahaha! :twisted:
  6. I do it everytime I wear my contacts! Doesn't bother me anymore.

    Twas my contacts that inspired this thread.......The worst is when you've had a few and spend 15 mins trying to take out a lense only to realise that you took it out first attempt :roll:

    Random Twigge strikes again.

    Methinks anyone with lovely contact lenses has to overcome any squeamishness... specially when the bloody things stick and one has to scoop them out...

    I can't touch them, but can shake them on their own rapidly from side to side- weird! :? :lol:

    I don't need my vision corrected but have no problem touching my eyeballs. I do, however, know many people who do (and I think it's weird, sorry!).

    a few times I've had to complete concerts with contact lens in hand, playing by looking through one eye... I think seeing the guy on the edge of the stage sticking his finger in his eye might be a bit much for the older members of the audience...

    Wasn't that featured in the film Under Seige 2?

    Steven Segal makes Arnold Schwarzeneggar look like an Oscar winning actor!

    I have contacts. Eyeball touching no problem for me. Needs to be especially when taking them out after having had a few beverages!
