I Have Glasses

    I have horrible vision.

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

    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...

    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.

    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

    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 worn glasses since I was 6!

    I have considered getting the surgery, but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't like how I look without my cute glasses.

    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 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.

    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 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...

    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...

    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...

    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 ;-)

    After years of blurred vision

    and headaches, I finally got glasses. It's great. the headaches have gone, I feel more alert and I can see more. What I wasn't expecting was it to feel so weird. When I first put them on I could feel my eyes trying to compensate fir visual aberrations that are no longer there...
