Which one do you prefer? Prescription glasses or contact lens? (Excludes sunglasses if you ask me.)

I wear glasses, but I preferred contacts because I am VERY self-conscious about my appearance and I vie in looking professional, especially when I am working or at a formal party. Believe it or not, many of my classmates don't recognize me without my glasses. Besides, my current one made me look clunky.

I much rather just wear the prescription glasses, to me they're easier to keep up with plus I look good with them on, lol. Well, at least that's what I've been hearing.

lol my parents insist I wear contacts, and buy them for me, so I wear them so they're not a waste. I'm not too bothered myself. Apparently I look better without glasses, but I'm really not bothered. Contacts aren't that hard to maintain.

Contacts all the way. They make you look better :) , I have them in right now and there really cool. Unlike Glasses were I had to clean them and other things Contacts are the best :)

I love my glasses. I think I look goofy without them :(

I use to love my glasses because they made me look sophisticated XP, but now when I play sports and in general life, I want contacts now.

I have both, but I'm too lazy to put on contacts sometimes... n_n; a half hour to put in the left eye... =_= So...glasses I guess! n_n

Heh, I wear contacts when I go to school and stuff, but I wear glasses at home. My contacts are better for seeing things far away and my glasses are better for close-up things, like reading or working on the computer. ^_^ I also look incredibly nerdy in my glasses so I never wear them to school anymore if I can help it...they're also really annoying to keep cleaning since my skin is oily and it smudges the lenses. x.X The only downside to contacts, I'm finding, is that they can take forever to put in sometimes, and when I have them in for a long time, they start to hurt. x.x But yeah...contacts all the way!

contacts. One blue and one brown in each eye.

I prefer none of them! XD

I have good eyes, luckily!

*Sighs* Glasses..

I prefer to stick with glasses, because contacts may damage the pupil of the eye rather than help it! Plus, when you put them on, the hands may be dirty, and you might as well infect your eye O.o;;

Glasses are better imo, besides, they make people look professional, and are like safety goggles ^_^

I wear pescription glasses, but only for reading.

I'm not sure what the consequences of wearing contact lenses are, but I am quite comfortable with wearing glasses. The only thing is that cleaning them is a hassle when you have people poking their fingers on them... Another disadvantage is when you're playing rough or contact sports. I could take them off, but me being short sighted, puts me at a huge disadvantage when playing such games. So I guess contact lenses would excel in the sports area.

I've been wearing glasses for almost a year and a half now--only when I need them, though, because I'm near-sighted. I am definitely going to get contacts at my next visit to the eye doctor because I'm so fed up with putting my glasses on and off constantly. I want green contact lenses. ^_^

I use contacts mostly. Sometimes once in a while I wear glasses. I cant see well with niether.

January 11th, 2004, 2:28 PM
I'm near sighted, and I don't usually have to wear anything to aid my vision at all. I have a pair of glasses, but I never really wear them. n.n()

January 11th, 2004, 5:23 PM
I'm supposed to wear glasses, but... heh..... I never wear mine. I just never remember to. X3;; But glasses for me. Contacts are sorta scary, in my opinion. Yes, I'm a prude, and I like it!

Never worn contacts before. I imagine they're annoying to put on, but glasses are annoying to wear....:\

January 17th, 2004, 10:29 PM
I like glassess. But I would preffer contacts...

January 17th, 2004, 10:35 PM
I like glasses, they make me look cute and innocent even though I am actually evil and nasty. I tried contacts once... didn't go well. I am nearsighted, heh.

Wow, so many bad eyes... just think, if we all procreate, we add more bad-eyed people to the population @[email protected]

It depends on what person is going to be wearing them. I don't wear contacts or glasses but I prefer contacts. :shocked:

My eyes are good so I don't need em! But if I had to choose I'd go with contacts...Glasses make me look like nerd! :D :D :D
