    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...

    Putting on your glasses

    after cleaning them is one of the BEST feelings. I can see clearly now, the rain has gone!

    I've got a pretty heavy prescription,

    too. I'm nearsighted so without my glasses I may as well be blind. In fact, I have friends who are nearsighted and even some of them say that it hurts there eyes to put on my glasses.

    Just got them for the first time.

    They are bifocals primarily for reading and close work. I'm getting headaches and sore eyes, how long will this last and when j feel this should I remove them? Also, should I wear them full time for the first few days?

    I typically don't mind it,

    except for when they get dirty. That just bothers the daylight out of me.

    I've worn them since I was a teenager.

    I'm short sighted. But in recent years needed varifocals so that I can see distance and read from same pair!

    I've been wearing glasses

    for nearly 4 years now. Even though I've had poor eyesight since my teen years, I never bothered to get them. Imagine how easier my life would have been if I had just gotten glasses sooner, lol. Adjusting to wearing glasses was a bit of a struggle and I didn't like wearing them...

    the glare and the sunlight. They are transitions so they adapt to my environment.

    I wear glasses most of the time,

    and I'm a blind as a bat without them. What's the point of people taking of my glasses and trying them on and they ruin it and I have to wash it for it to be clear! JUST DONT TAKE THEM!

    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.
