Getting fitted for contacts for the first time...anything I need to know?

I had an eye exam for contacts last week, but they didn't have my prescription in, so they had to order them. Well, they're in now, and I'm going later this afternoon for the fitting and whatnot.

What should I expect? Anything I need to know?

Thanks!

If your a girl wear water proof makeup. Because your eyes aren't used to close contact they'll water a lot. It doesn't hurt. It's just uncomfortable.

That's just you. I can wear them perfectly fine. And I don't even need them.

Glasses are a pain in the butt. I hate having something on my face all the time, and I hate how smudged and dirty they get.

Glasses are annoying. I hate having something on my face and the reduced peripheral vision. Plus they get smudged and dirty!

Yes you must know how to maintain the contact lenses and how to maintain hygiene so that eyes and lenses do not get infected and put you in trouble.
