    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...

    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...

    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?

    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 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.

    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.

    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...

    So, I'm officially glassified.

    Got me a pair this past week. My vision is good its just since I work in an environment where I tend to look at a bright screen for 8+ hours it takes a toll on your vision. At first you don't realize it but after you get off the screen everything becomes hazed, blurred and hard...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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 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 have horrible vision.

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