A sore sight for eyes

I was recently told that I need glasses permanently. I chose to go down the contact lens route as I have an outdoor and quite physical lifestyle. Much to my horror, as part of the trial period (determining if my eyes could cope with contacts), I was given two weeks' worth of daily contact lenses. Here's the waste I've produced as a result of using disposable contacts:
Eeeeeeeeeek!
It's frightening to think that other contact lens users choose daily. That's an awful lot of waste over a lifetime of impaired sight.

I am now giving monthly ones a go. Any suggestions about where to go to from there? Can I get contacts that last longer?
