    Well, I had glasses. Now they're at the bottom

    of a lake and I can't get new ones for a while. And I don't have old pair until Monday. I freaking hate camping...

    Putting on your glasses

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

    I can't stand the thought of wearing contact

    lenses, so I walk around all dorky like this. Luckily, I don't need them for walking; I only need them for driving.

    My new glasses still aren't made

    yet so now I have my crappy old glasses and I'm squinting to see everything. People tell me I should just get contacts but I always say that I don't want to. Glasses cover up a little bit of my face so that takes some self consciousness away, I've had them for more than half of...

    I've had to wear glasses ever

    since i was about 6 years old. Growing up I didn't like wearing them so through the years I've had glasses but only wore them whenever " I felt like it". Now a days I wear them everyday. Unlike before when I felt my glasses were a bother and I hated wearing them, now I like them...

    I first started wearing glasses on the 2nd

    grade. At that time I sweetie my life was over. You see my mom signed me and my brother up for every sport known to man. This wasn't the direct problem, as it wouldn't prevent me from playing. The issue was, the ol' man decided to slap a pair of Horace Grant goggles on my little...

    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.

    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!

    When I was small, I always thought.

    .....how cool it would be to have glasses, how cool I would look and all that -_-. I got them 2 years ago, now I always thought.....just why can't I throw them out of my window?! x(

    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!

    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

    I typically don't mind it,

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

    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...

    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.

    Was gonna get contacts

    but I never realized how brutal it is to place them into your eyes. I tried getting them in but I failed after four hours of trying. They're not for me, I guess.

    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...

    I got my first pair of glasses

    when I was in my late 20s. Now I use them for driving or riding and when it's dark. I have them off now when typing at the computer. It's annoying when I need to take them off to read a book or do close work. It's nice to have tinted lenses when it's bright outside. I tried...

    because it just makes me look all nerdy and teacher-esque which is so not attractive hahah but i put them on when I'm in class because if i dont, all the equations and words on the board just look like a blurry mess, and i look like a retard squinting trying to decipher them...

    I want contacts though,

    so I won't HAVE to wear glasses everyday. Sometimes I'm tired of wearing glasses, miss placing them, cleaning them.
