    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.

    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 ;-)

    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...

    They'Re Not Bad

    My eyesight isn't all that great but it isn't terrible either like some of my friends who can see gigantic bold letters from a few feet away. I wear contacts because I exercise a lot and glasses would interfere but I also have a spare set of glasses. I love my glasses. I really...

    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...

    I have myopia and astigmatism!

    Since I'm nearsighted, I obviously need the glasses to see from a far, but some days I wake up! And it's literally like bad with the glasses or worse without them. I got prescribed glasses about a year or two ago! Could my eye sight have changed?

    I got my first pair of glasses

    when I was like 12 or so but I didn't like them because back then they were the old crappy wire frame ones. I finally decided to get a new pair after I finished school. I got a new pair about a year ago though that are probably my favourite ones I've had

    seeing me in glasses. And before a few weeks ago, I was even afraid of seeing myself in the mirror with my glasses on. I was afraid that it would change who i was and that I would become somebody else almost. I first got glasses when I was 12 and my power was -2.00 in both...

    Yes, I have glasses,

    and I hate them! Some people look good with glasses but I do not have a symmetrical face and most glasses do not fit me well, and slide down my nose. I'm working on getting laser surgery in the near future, and hopefully being rid of them once and for all.

    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.

    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...

    I've always preferred glasses to 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.

    I think I got hair spray on my glasses

    and it's effect my vision on my right eye. Does anyone know what I can do to get off? It's like a smudge or smear over the lense. I've tried warm water with a flannel. Glass cleaner and just wiping it and nothing working!

    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...
