Glasses are for losers.

...Nah, that's about how long it took me. If anything you're a little later than when I got glasses. I only wear them in class, driving, watching a movie or doing anything else that requires seeing into the distance. My mom still occasionally forgets this for some reason. She used to ask me if I need my glasses when I need to read something small sometimes. I print out my notes for school in 1- or 2-point font to save paper; I don't have any problems with short-range vision.

I have perfect vision, which is funny because my mother wears glasses, and my sister needed two eye surgeries.

I don't need to wear glasses. (yet) :P Though if i needed to, I'd probably prefer glasses over contacts. They look cooler. :P(not to mention contacts are a tedious mess, at least from my point of view, as my sister wears them.)

No, that'd be around 6. My printer usually screws up 1 so I usually go for more around 2-4.

I've needed corrective lenses since I was little. First glasses, then contacts.

Somehow, glasses are really trendy today. They even make a person look cool.

Sometimes that makes me jealous, because I don't need glasses ;p ( But afterall, I can still wear sunglasses...)

I was really against getting glasses, but I've since accepted it. I actually think I look good in glasses.

I like looking smart. :3

I like wearing glasses depending on my hair length. If it's short, no glasses. If my hair's long, glasses look great on me. But I have to wear them at all times, so...

Post Re: i got glasses!
I wore glasses to correct an astigmatism for a few years starting about 16 years ago.

A few years ago, I was getting headaches all the time and had a real issue with light sensitivity. My optometrist offered to write a prescription for glasses to reduce eye strain, but I never got back to him and the issue has largely gone away.

I am exactly like Sleet and Spargo, I am near-sighted and I pretty much always take them off unless I need them.

Too bad glasses won't save my looks IRL! I still prefer to be without glasses.

Funny, my Mom and Dad are both blind as a bat without glasses, and my brother wears glasses, yet I still don't. I'm sure my eyes will crap out soon enough and I'll need glasses. I could never wear contacts though; getting anything near my eyes freaks me out...

My eyes are unusually responsive to items in close proximity. I can't even get through an eye exam, the optometrists basically have to physically immobilize my eyelids.

"You have all the symptoms of tumors on the optical nerves, but no presence of tumors. Huh." Thanks, doc.

I have myopia, therefore I have to wear glasses. I also have contacts, but I rarely use them... It's a good thing I bought a 6-month's supply just in case...

You don't see sharp edges?

It seems there's something wrong with lens in your eye, because you cannot see things from other angle. Have you consulted with optitian?

Post Re: i got glasses!
I've wore my glasses since the 5th grade.
There have been many instances that if I wasn't wearing my glasses, I'd literally be blind by now. Flying projectiles, you see.

But I don't like wearing my glasses. They change the whole view of my face, and with the way I wear my hair, they just make me look like a dude. >_< But my eyesight is too bad to go without them.

With my eyes, I can't wear contacts either. (Nerve damage in the optical center of my brain).

To put it simply: I don't mind wearing glasses, but I hate my frames....

I can SEE without corrective lenses, just not clearly. I can see enough to know where things are, but I'd have to lean close and squint to see anything clearly (so I wouldn't want to read that way).

no, it depends on what monitor you have, on some monitors that can appear as a line while others it can appear as clear text.

My eyes are horrible. I've had to wear glasses since I was about 8 years old. Without glasses, even my computer screen and keyboard get a little, wait... make that very fuzzy, and I'm Nearsighted! :lol:

The funny thing is, No one thought I needed glasses except me at first. I forced my teacher to allow me to go to a new student eye exam that my school was having because my parents kept putting off taking me to the optometrist's. That was where they found out that my eyes were bad. I guess I showed them, huh! :twisted:

The same just without contacts. I started using glasses around 6 years ago. I love having my hair long and wear glasses.

I wear contacts. I change them out like once every several months. I've worn glasses before, but for a variety of reasons I prefer contacts. What I really wish is that I could wear a monocle, but that'd be silly since both my eyes are messed up.
