Do you need to wear Glasses?

If you do, do you like it and what are you views about it? Or do you just wear contacts?

If you don't, how do you feel about people around you wearing glasses and how do you prevent yourself from wearing them.

For me, I do, I wear them and its kind of troublesome to wear them.

Nope. I don't need glasses, for I have a 20/20 vision.

They're still considered normal or ordinary for me even if they wear their eye glasses. It must be difficult trying to avoid it from breaking or falling off from your face though.

Well, what I do is to stay away from the computer or other gadgets frequently, to avoid straining of my eyes, and usually just watch the trees to make them relax. I also try my best to have enough sleep, even if I tend to do a lot of (school)work.

Yes, I do. I own a pair and only wear them when I'm at home. When I'm out, I always wear contacts. Glasses make me look different from what I normally look like, from other people's comments. I look much better without glasses in my opinion, but I'm not uncomfortable wearing them around other people.

I should wear reading glasses because sometimes I find it hard to read things that are close to me.
Other than that, no, I've never wanted to use glasses or needed to. I wouldn't mind it though.

I've wore glasses ever since middle school and I don't really mind it. Usually after awhile I'll forget that I'm even wearing them most days. Though I could get by without wearing glasses because I only need them for my left eye which is weaker than my right eye which dominates my vision meaning that I could go without them and see the world as if I had 20/20 vision but that would mean my left eye would never get better. I like them but I do need new ones some time soon.

I'm nearsighted and should wear glasses, but I usually don't. Partially because I lost them.

I have to wear them because I have a very weak eye and a contact would not be any better.

I have a lazy eye on the ride side, so I technically do need em. Could have been fixed when I was younger, but those damn eye patches were too much for me. No one wants to be the kid who has to wear both glasses and a patch at the same time, even if they're only 8. Its just one of those things. :/

I am nearsighted and have worn glasses since 1st grade. Personally, I don't look too bad with glasses on, though I think I look much better without them. I wish I could get contacts or laser eye surgery but they're both too expense and my dad says I'm not responsible enough to have contacts and thinks I'll lost them too often. I disagree and really want to buy contacts on my own.

Sometimes I wear these UV protection "sunglasses" that just look like normal glasses because I think I look nice in them. It's funny. I do all those things that are supposed to be bad for your eyes like staring at screens and reading in the dark and yet my vision is still fine.

I have 20/20 vision, so technically not.

However, I do like to wear pretend glasses cos I look pretty awesome in them.

Nah, I don't. They look pretty difficult to manage, though. Cleaning them and making sure they don't break seem pretty difficult when it's a constant thing.

I have awful vision. I can't read something unless it's within 6" of my face. I've been wearing glasses for about 10 years now.

Fortunately for me I actually look really great in glasses and feel more uncomfortable around people in contacts. I have daily contacts I dispose of after I wear them for a day, but I'd like to get a pair to wear a few hours of the day when I'm using my big headphones or something and my glasses are being a pain ^^;

I've been wearing glasses since the third grade. I do have contacts but I only wear them on special occasions like special dinners or when it's wiser to wear glasses than contacts. Such as conventions (usually when I am cosplaying), amusement parks (so I don't have to take my glasses off every ride) so on and so forth.

I've been told that I look better with and without glasses so it really just comes down to personal preference I guess. I think I look all right both ways.

March 4th, 2013, 1:32 PM
No, I don't personally wear glasses.

Unless you're of the female sex I don't really think any different of you whether you wear glasses or not.
However... If you're a chick and wear glasses then congratulations, your charm just went up about twenty points. (One of my few weaknesses... What? I'm only human!)

Technically I do, but my vision is pretty decent without them. I'm not sure what kind of bad vision I have; I think they said astigmatism when I was a kid, but stuff farther away is blurrier to me than stuff right in front of me, which I don't think is astigmatism.

I've always thought glasses are cool and have wanted them all my life. So it was awesome when I finally got them in middle school. It's not so fun now when I am an adult and don't have the funds to get new glasses. Still desperately need a new prescription. :(

I've worn glasses ever since I started secondary school. I am short sighted so I wear them all the time and they help me see boards and screens.I look better with glasses on and I'll only take them off when I go to bed or when they are not needed. I like my glasses they hide my ugly mug.

March 4th, 2013, 3:23 PM
I have very low prescription lenses for myopia, but I don't really need to wear them unless I'm at the cinema as trying to view the screen for too long without them often gives me a headache.

I've had to wear glasses since I was eight years old or so. By now I'm so used to wearing them that it actually feels weird to me if I'm not wearing them. o.O I remember trying to go without them when I first got them, but now...there's no way I can manage it, my vision is so bad without them. I'm talking like extremely blurred unless something's only a few inches from my face.

I can't say if I like them or dislike them, they're just...there, by now. Haven't ever tried wearing contacts, those seem to me like they'd be too much trouble.

March 4th, 2013, 4:43 PM
I sure do, and I love them. Well, I did. I'll love them again when I get a new frame, cause the one I have on right now are broken. Blah

Anyway, I've grown to really like wearing glasses, though it wasn't always like that. For the longest time, I really wanted to wear contacts, simply cause they seemed cooler. But after a while, I realized that it'd be just a hassle. And besides, with the right pair of glasses, anyone can look great, and I think the pair I have on right now fits that bill.

March 4th, 2013, 4:53 PM
I do not wear glasses, but sometimes I wish that I did. I just love the look of glasses on people.

March 4th, 2013, 5:04 PM
Yes, I wear glasses and have been since... The 3rd grade? Around that time I believe. My vision is horrible without them, so they never really leave my side. I've been wearing glasses for so long that I hardly notice them anymore. I look different without them, maybe because I've had them for so long, so I guess you could say I like them.

March 4th, 2013, 6:00 PM
Yes, I wear mine all the time. I wear reading glasses, especially for small prints

March 4th, 2013, 6:05 PM
Interestingly enough, I am the only male in my family who doesn't wear glasses or wear contacts.

March 4th, 2013, 6:07 PM
I have glasses, however I don't need them all the time. They're for seeing far away and I only wear them in class or at the movies. I'm supposed to wear them when driving, but I haven't had any problems when I don't wear them, so yeah, I don't wear them in the car haha. I don't like to wear them often anyway, and my prescription is rather weak, so I don't need them too bad. They're just enhancers if anything.

March 4th, 2013, 11:00 PM
I don't need to wear glasses all the time but I generally do anyway. I have a very weak prescription that helps correct my right eye's slight nearsightedness. I mainly just need them if I'm sitting near the back of a classroom or something but I try to wear them at all times so that I won't forget them when I do actually need them.

I also really like the glasses and how I look with them so that's a bonus... and another reason I keep them on all the time. :D I hate the idea of contacts (seriously, they squick me out something fierce) so I'm happy that glasses aren't troublesome or annoying for me.

I used to wear glasses from 8th grade up until I started 10th grade, which is when I started getting contacts due to football.

Don't regret it, though I'd love to have a stylish pair just for looks.

I never wear glasses because my vision is crystal clear.
So to prevent wearing glasses, I managed to watching TV at fixed size, and not reading books when the light is too dim.

Yup, I have miopia, I think that's it. Because I played DS very closely. I have like a 10/20 vision imo. My left eye is better than my right eye btw.

March 6th, 2013, 9:15 PM
I don't need to wear glasses right now, but I wouldn't be surprised if that changed. Aside from one aunt, every single member of my family that I can think of needed glasses in some form by their mid to late 20s, so it wouldn't surprise me if I followed down that path, too (at least I've still got a few years ahead of me before that happens).

I have no opinion on wearing glasses past the irritation I get from wearing them too long on the bridge of my nose. I need them to see clearly past the length of my arms. I can't wear contacts because I can't get them into my eye.

March 6th, 2013, 9:50 PM
I've been wearing glasses since I was four-years-old. Everyone in my family needed glasses at some point, so it's genetics for me. My eyesight is really bad, since one eye is far-sighted and the other is near-sighted. So if I don't have my glasses on, I see nothing.

At this point in my life, I don't see that ever changing. I'm always going to wear glasses. I like the way I look with them on (and a lot of people that I know who wore glasses look better with them), and I don't really like the idea of putting things in my eyes. I'm squeamish that way.

I don't wear glasses but do use eye drops for no particular reason whatsoever.

I dont currently wear glasses but I have a prescription for them I never filled because I hate glasses. I used to need them and Id always lose them and they were annoying and didnt look good on me. I dont really want them again.

I've worn glasses since I was 7 years old. I used to hate them because they were just another thing that made me look dorky, but now I love them. I've got super cool ones now and everybody tells me I look weird (and sometimes Asian) without them! :P

March 15th, 2013, 2:54 AM
Yeah, I've been wearing both reading and distance glasses since I was about ten. :\ When I was young, I used to joke about people who wore them and thought they were extremely corny.

Now, I think I look pretty good in them and when I take them off for the day, I look completely different, haha. I actually really don't mind wearing them, although I suppose they do hurt after wearing them for quite a while, and the marks they leave on my nose/behind my ears are annoying, lol. But, you need them if you want to be able to see clearly, so I guess the pros outweigh the cons here.
