Ho ho. Been there, done that! Woken up a few times with one lens in and the other ... well - could be anywhere. Hey, I even managed to put both contact lenses in the SAME eye one (the morning after the night before...). That was pretty trippy. Oh, I once spent 30 minutes trying to take a lens out that wasn't actually there. Ouch. That's the thing with GP lenses - they are very small and can shift position and end up right at the top of your eyeball. At least soft lenses cover most of the front of the eyeball - makes them less prone to slippage in my experience.
my right eye is -6.5 and my left -8.0. I have astigmatisms in both
Yes, I would say that -8 is around the point where they may not be able to correct it all. My wife was around a -6 and they told her there was a possibility that she would not be bale to get away without any glasses. Today she lives very well and darn near 20/20 in both eyes and loves it.

I had Lasik done on both eyes 5 years ago. I was extremely near-sighted (-8.75, -9), with astigmatisms in both eyes. Less than 24 hours after the procedure, I was tested at 20/15 in one eye, 20/20+ in the other. My vision is still 20/20 5 years later.
