    Accepting And Growing To Love Being 4 Eyes

    I first started wearing glasses when I was in middle school, but I only wore them in class when I had to. I didn't know then that glasses could be stylish and help me define who I was and add to my personality. I though they were nerdy and made me not cool.I didn't start wearing...

    I've worn glasses all the time

    since I was nine. I've loved wearing them from the start. When I don't have glasses on and look in the mirror, it's like something is missing - the glasses are part of my identity. I also like glasses on other people. I think glasses make them look smart and sexy. I don't like...

    I Cried When I Put My Glasses On For The First Time!

    I couldn’t believe it; I could see again, I don’t care what people say! I love my glasses!! I had an eye operation last year, my retina was detached and I was losing sight in my right eye, it was all just going black. The doctors injected a bubble into my eye and I had to...

    Sounds Crazy But...

    I do love wearing glasses now. I use to try so hard at getting contacts all the time. Now, I couldn't care less and I've learned I can pick out of a huge selection than just a pair of black or gold frame ones. Not to mention a person looks smart, sexy, and I even heard some...

    I've always believed this connotation

    that people who wear glasses are intelligent, if not wise. I mean, all the people I've encountered and met who wear glasses have different and bizarre ways of thinking and ideologies. My aunt who's a professor has it, my favorite mathematics teacher has one, etc. To be honest...

    you might as well get a pair of fabulous ones that compliment your eyes and head shape, right?

    You can't lose contacts inside your skull,

    can you...? One of the reasons I don't wear contacts. The other being that I just couldn't seem to put them in.

    Maybe because I'd be almost blind without them.

    No contact lenses for me. Glasses come in so many designs. I've worn then since the 3rd grade.

    I don't feel the need to spend loads of dosh to have some dude wave a laser at me & tell me I have 20-20 again. Contacts? Nah. If I want fingers poked in my eye on a regular basis, I'll take up rugby. Glasses are OK. I have no problem here. Sure - people have called me four...

    I actually have really bad eyesight, but I do not mind cause I get to wear glasses due to it. I love hearing people's glasses stories, like how they got them the first time, so please feel free to share in the comments below!

    I really love wearing my glasses.

    I always wanted to wear glasses but had perfect 20/15 vision. Finally, six years ago, I needed glasses for distance when I was in college. I was only supposed to wear them for driving and only as needed otherwise. I wore them all of the time though. My vision in my right and...

    I wear my glasses all the time.

    Even though I do have the option to wear contacts, I probably never will because I'll probably poke my eye or something! Glasses really suit me anyway.

    But what I hate about them is what people say

    about my glasses. Person: So can you see with those glasses on? Me: No. I wear prescripted glasses for fun! :D Me: OF COURSE YOU MORON, WHY ELSE WOULD I WEAR PREscriptED GLASSES?! And my hair gets stuck in the hinges sometimes and I can't lay down with them. So...yeah.

    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...

    I am a real glasses geeky girl.

    I loce them because I look smarter when I am wearing them. I need them because I have really bad eyes. Without my glasses I hust see something like 60%... I always use fabulous glasses from Rayban or SuperDry. They are from a great quality too, somthing I need.

    My glasses and I have a 'love-hate'

    relationship. They can be bothersome during sports and things like that, but I do like them sometimes. I have a few different pairs so it's nice to change them once in a while for a new look. I would prefer to not need them though.
