    I Do, For Now

    I always wanted to wear glasses but had absolutely perfect vision. Every time I got tested my vision was 20/15. No glasses. All through elementary school, junior high, sports physicals, college physical, and grad school physical- always 20/15. Something magical happened in grad...

    Can't say I love them

    but I definitely need them, I have worn glasses since my early teens. In my 30's my old aviators needed to be replaced so my wife made both of us eye appointments. I am trying different frames but I like the old frames so that is what I will order but my wife hands me a pair to...

    When I needed glasses I was

    so happy because I loved how glasses looked. The other kids made a big deal about glasses and was afraid to wear them but I didn't care. I like the thick framed square glasses the most.

    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...

    Bifocals...bifocals...bifocals

    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...

    Where's The Problem?

    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 do wear glasses and I like wearing them.

    I actually feel most comfortable with my glasses on. I suppose they are some sort of "safety blanket" for me. So to be without them throws me off. LOL!Recently, I lost my glasses. Oh no! My safety blanket gone within the blink of an eye! UGH! The good news is that I can see...

    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.

    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.
