    I Like Mine.

    I remember when I was a kid, I used to beg my mom for glasses.  I could tell my vision wasn't the best. She finally buckled and we went through the fun fun trip of getting them.   I almost regretted getting them, since my eyes are extremely oversensitive. I wore...

    So in elementary if you had glasses it meant

    you were smart. I was the only one at my table who didnt have glasses and I felt left out & stupid. So one night I prayed to god to give me glasses, so I could look cool & smart. Literally 3 weeks later I had to get glasses because I couldn't see far away. & ever since then I...

    Got my first pair of reading glasses shortly

    after I turned forty. Only needed them for reading so I didn't wear them all the time. Every two years the prescriptions kept getting stronger. Before I was fifty I had my first pair of bifocals. The more I used the glasses the more I needed them. Each time I went to get an eye...

    When you can't ever wear sunglasses without

    I got my first ones when no was 7.

    I remember I really wanted to wear glasses, two of my friends had just gotten them and 3 already had glasses. So, I made my mom take me to the eye doctor by acting like I was having trouble reading, it took about two months before she finally fell for it and took me to the eye...

    I faked them out for a long time in grade

    school by memorizing the letters on the eye tests while waiting for my turn. They finally caught me in about seventh grade. I gave them a good run, I am so blind that I can't see the big E on the eye test,   I wear contacts a lot of the time though.

    I Hate Wearing Glasses!

    I have to wear glasses because I can't see anything up close but I totally hate them! They make me look like a total dweeb no matter what I wear or how I fix my hair. They kinda give me headaches sometimes because I'm still not used to them. Plus it's like really annoying...

    I got glasses about 3 months ago

    and they are blue and white. But I look like a nerd in them. There's nothing wrong with looking like a nerd, but it's still feels weird wearing them because I'm not quite used to them.

    They make you look smarter

    and enhances your appearance. I could easily swap my glasses for contacts, but I would feel so naked without glasses.

    I have horrible vision.

    I got glasses when I was young, around 6 or so. I am nearsighted, but I wear contacts normally.

    My eye doctor actually told me

    that I didn't need glasses. I just got them because the rest of my family did and I wanted us to look... cohesive, LOL. But from wearing them so often, I noticed they do make my sight sharper ;-)

    Not Everybody Will Approve Of This

    I started wearing glasses at the age of 12. I had perfect eyesight then. One day I tried on a classmate's glasses in front of the mirror. We both thought that I looked good with glasses. Hers were too strong for me to wear longer than five minutes but she gave me her old pair...

    Yes, I do wear glasses

    and I ******* lost them. I gutted my whole room and I can't find them. And the worst part is that, I can barely see. So I can't find my glasses without them. So I will just lay here , half blind and die

    They Say That Men Don't Make Passes At Women Who Wear Glasses

    I can tell you that is absolutely not true.  A  survey found 45% of men found women who wear glasses more intelligent and sexier than those who don't.  But yes, it does get in the way of kissing.
