    The struggle of not knowing

    which to wear, should I wear my glasses or my contacts. Or being fudging blind that you take the risk of wearing your contacts when you take a shower, because is it just me or when you can't see clearly you just imagine stuff and your bathroom seems like a bathroom from a horror...

    I have been wearing glasses me entire life.

    I also have really long eyelashes, so sometimes when I blink I they brush against my lenses. And whenever I take off my glasses, everyone notices my eyelashes and starts talking about them. It seems kind of of weird.

    Do I Look More Intelligent With My Glasses Or Without?

    I'll add enough photos to help you make a decision. Do I look mpre intelligent, even intellectual, or 'doctor-like' with my glasses on or with my contacts in? I am intrigued to hear from you.

    I wear glasses. It typically doesn't bother me,

    except for the fact that when they get dirty, it's impossible to see anything, and also, it's near impossible to clean them.

    I got my first pair of glasses

    when I was 12 but I hated having to wear them. As I've gotten older I've learned accept them and the frames have gotten a whole lot better and I wear them all the time

    I hate wearing contacts,

    I've had them for a month only wear them inside my house tho as one of my eye is smaller than the other so I wear glasses when I go out. I'm thinking of getting non perception glasses so I can wear contacts underneath as I need to wear them as I have keracotonus. If ithe...

    I actually like wearing glasses over contacts

    when I'm not playing sports. Contacts dry out and irritate my eyes, plus who doesn't love a girl in glasses?? Lol

    Well for the first time in my 30 plus years of

    existence, I will be wearing contacts. Well contact. I'm only putting it in one eye. This is a hard lens contact. But it's huge. Because of the way my eyes are shaped, it's difficult to improve it without this type of contact. They're called scleral lenses. I felt so proud...

    Just glasses. I have 20/50 vision with

    astigmatism. I take a break from wearing them when I'm at home (sometimes) but I prefer to wear them most of the time because it's frustrating if I can't read (and need to), or if I start getting a headache.

    I like contacts better

    than glasses, on me it's more attractive. However I'm not into taking out contacts every night, and so glasses are usually on my face.

    I wear glasses, most of the time.

    But sometimes when vanity gets to me, I'll take them off. God knows when I go on stages, I'll take them off. That way I kill two birds with one stone; I can't see the audience, but I look waaaay better (I think). It's not like I need them exactly anyway. I can see everything...

    I have been wearing glasses sense 3rd grade

    and finally decided to wear contacts. It's really weird transitioning between the two and complicated getting them in and out.
