    I've had glasses since I was 2.

    I found out my mom kept most of the pairs I've owned over the years. How sweet

    I have had glasses or should I say needed

    vision correction for a very long time. I started out with glasses and it wasn't too bad, broke quite a few and then went into metal frames but when I went into modeling and advertising, contacts seemed the way to go so I did. It was nice while it lasted but a real pain in the...

    I started getting bad eyesight in second grade

    but i didn't get my first pair until i was 9. I hated wearing them, i used to squint which probably made my eyesight worse. Anyways, it then just became part of my life. i wear them everyday, all day, never really thinking much of it. people would comment on how the different...

    They were expensive but I only need them

    for reading.I barely wear them though.As I hate reading.However I can still wear them to see writing from a distance or just to see details in general.

    I love wearing glasses.

    They're a lot more fun than they used to be. I push them up my nose when I'm nervous and I like to wear them loose so that they're always coming down my nose. When I used to sell glasses my district manager hated that!!! The best part is when my boyfriend takes them off when...

    So, I'm officially glassified.

    Got me a pair this past week. My vision is good its just since I work in an environment where I tend to look at a bright screen for 8+ hours it takes a toll on your vision. At first you don't realize it but after you get off the screen everything becomes hazed, blurred and hard...

    But I Hate It.

    I have pretty purple glasses now but I still don't like that I do. I would love to have laser eye surgery. I hate how in movies when the plain girl turns into the desirable girl they always let her hair down and remove her glasses. WTF?

    I am thankful for wearing glasses.

    I can't count how many times my glasses have saved my eyesight. Frying bacon and the grease splatters. It landed on my glasses and not in my eye. Doing yard work and the weed eater sends debris flying and my glasses protected my eyes. Painting walls and ceilings and the paint...

    I like having glasses,

    but I don't like how bad my eyesight is without them. When I was in school, I liked playing rugby, but it was a real struggle as I couldn't tell where the ball was half the time. :(

    I got my first glasses

    when I was 11. I thought that it was the worst thing happened to me. It was a big suprise to me, too, when I weren't able to see the E's properly. I hated my glasses so much that I didn't wear them in public until I was 15. In school, I used to sit in the first row and still...

    It's annoying having glasses

    because I am nearly blind! Literally. They are always in the way, and they always get dirty or foggy. If I don't have my glasses I am screwed and I won't be able to do anything. I always wish I could get rid of them. But then again, I look so weird without them.. The only good...

    I got glasses about 3 years ago

    but for the last 2 years I've mostly been wearing contacts. I think contacts are better because I get peripheral vision, and I can wear sunglasses. I only wear my glasses on those lazy days when I don't feel like putting in my contacts.

    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.

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

    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...

    Glasses

    I dont yet need glasses and last eye test suggests I wont need to but I just wanted to assure the ladies who do have to wear them that there are plenty of guys out there who find women that wear glasses even more attractive than those who dont.

    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 was supposed to have glasses at 11-12 but I refused to wear them at school or in public. Only wore them at home watching tv etc. I couldnt stand having something in my face. At 13 I tried contacts but I couldn't make it work, so I just decided to be half blind for a few years...

    I began wearing glasses in grade 4.

    At first, it was only necessary when I was looking at the blackboard. But time progressed and my vision only worsened. So today, I'm either wearing glasses or wearing contacts. Mostly it's contacts. I don't like wearing glasses too much, and I only wish I could appreciate them...

    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.

    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 ;-)

    Never without them unless they're broken.
