Should I try contact lenses again? What brand/style?

I've been wearing glasses for about 20 years. I'm mildly near-sighted, with a minor astigmatism. I tried contact lenses about 10 years ago, and could never get comfortable wearing them, for a variety of reasons. Part of it was that I was kind of squicked out by having something in my eye/having to touch my eye, and part was that I could just not get comfortable - I was always very aware of the contacts, and they'd sometimes practically pop out.
Has anything changed in the last 10 years that would make my experience with contact lenses better if I tried them again? Is there a particular brand you'd recommend? Please assume I'm a newbie to contacts as of 2011 and tell me what would work best.
