You are so much better at handing out criticism than taking it. It was your OTT post, and others like it, that made me come in a bit strong to attempt to balance it up a bit.
If you're ready, perhaps we could get back to the OP?
OP has only just fallen foul of the driving eyesight requirements, so several things follow....
He doesn't need to put his lenses in first thing in the morning and take them out last thing at night, he can cope perfectly well indoors with no lenses.
He can choose to wear them on the bike, or not to wear them.
He can choose at work, also. (unless somebody else's safety might be compromised in his work, in which case wearing them would seem prudent)
If he chooses to only wear them for driving, then glasses are the obvious choice.
I'm guessing the OP is slightly short-sighted, not above about 2 dioptres.....this will be written on the prescription as -2 (minus 2)...or -1.5, etc.
Wearing glasses on a bike stinks.....although the smaller your prescription, the less it stinks.
It stinks because the best bit of the lens (optically) is the middle.....the bit you always look through with contacts.
The optician will place your lenses in your frames so you are looking through the (optical) centre of the lens when you are walking along. So leaning forward to cycle, you are looking through the top of the lens, and craning your neck to do that. Glancing to the side, or behind, gives barrel distortion, which isn't what makes rainbows, thats total internal reflection. With a big prescription, the image moves when you move your head.....glasses wearers are used to this and compensate automatically, but if you change back from contacts it is "interesting" until the right reflexes cut in.
Varifocals are cylindrical lenses rather than spherical, and are worse.
Then theres rain, dust, condensation, scratched lenses, snow, spray, sweat......
If you want a "money no object" recommendation, then its hard lenses which you wear overnight, so in the morning you can see with nothing in your eyes
.....ideal for dirty environments. I would have them in a heartbeat, except my prescription is too great, and age/stiffness of the cornea doesn't seem to be on my side. http://www.allaboutvision.com/contacts/orthok.htm
