    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.

    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...

    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...

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

    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.

    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've always preferred glasses to contacts.

    Mostly because I don't have to struggle in the mirror for 20 minutes because I fail at taking them out. ;~;

    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 had them since I was in Grade 5.

    Sometimes it is just irritating because you get those marks on your nose, and sometimes the heaviness of the glass makes me dizzy. However, I can say I can't live without my glasses. I have an HD image when I have glasses, lol. Every 6 months I go to the Optometrist to check on...

    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.

    Ever since I was a young boy I've had really

    bad eyesight and wore glasses since the age of around 7. I have tried contact lenses but I couldn't get along with them, so I'll be a glasses wearer the rest of my life. But I look better with glasses than without. So that suits me fine.
