Well,... maybe. It seems like a lot of others here on the message boards have worn theatrical contacts, and I haven't really heard of anyone else complaining.
That being said, I wear contacts every day (nearsighted) and think that the theatrical contacts (prescription curvature) are annoying. This is partly because I don't think they fit the curvature of my eyeball well, and also because the "pupil" area in the center of the contact lens is smaller than my pupils... This causes a ring of color around my field of vision and also impairs my night vision. I have worn these on probably 10 different occasions for several hours at a time... but it's always a relief to take them out at the end of the night.
