    My Glasses.

    I didn't start wearing glasses until I was 29, and while my eye doctor said I only needed them to drive I decided to wear them all the time. Now I feel naked when I don't wear them.

    I have wanted to wear glasses

    since the age of 5, but was always a shy person and it took me about 10 years to get over the embarrassment , fear or whatever it was to start wearing glasses after I knew I needed them. However, once I finally decided I was ready, I was ready. I finally started wearing glasses...

    Coke Bottle Bottoms

    I am legally blind, but with glasses can be corrected to something near 20-20. I remember getting my first pair as a little kid.  Imagine living in a blurry world all your life...and then putting on a pair of glasses.  I was awestruck and amazed; I never knew the world looked...

    I Think I Look A Lot Better Without Them

    I was 15 years old when I finally needed glasses. Being under the peer pressure that I was to try to fit in and look good at all possible, I thought it was the worst thing to happen to my appearance. I also felt a little handicapped becuase I was now at a young age where I...

    I started wearing glasses in the second grade

    and fortunately I suppose did not go through the teasing that many face because I grew up in a country (not where I live now) where lots of people had to wear them, even as kids. But when the teenage years came around, everyone started wearing contacts so I tried it too. But...

    Yes, I Do.

    It's so interesting to look back and see how my attitude has changed. I was in second grade when I got glasses. The strange thing is that I did not liked them at all. I thought that it isn't necessary to wear them. On purpose I left glasses home and then told my...

    I got my first pair when I was in the 5th grade. It was only for the blackboard. Over the years, I depended on my glasses a lot more and started wearing them on a daily basis.

    I started wearing them about a month ago

    and I love the way I look. I've always wanted to wear glasses but my sight was perfect. But now, that I have to spend a lot of hours in front of a computer, my sight started to worsen a bit. I wear them all the time, though I don't need them all the time.

    Have been wearing glasses since I was 14. I was in a Maths class and was asked to read the question on the board. I had to ask which board. That's how bad my eyesight was.

    When I first got mine,

    I hated them. But after a while I got used to them, and now I barely take them off :) Plus, because of this ridiculous society we live in, according to studies, someone who wears glasses is considered intelligent. So that falls well in my favour.

    I Love Them.

    I wore glasses for a whopping three months, before they told me I was going blind in my left eye, the left eye had a really thick lens and the right side, was just a thin piece of glass, I still have them and wear them occasionally. I love glasses, even if they are going to aid...

    Been wearing them since the university years. Both loving and hating them really. Like I love that it helps me see better and read better; but it limits certain things I want to do. And I'm not a contact lens person. Just sticking anything in the eyes grosses me out - but that's...
