I tried wearing contacts one time and after 4 hours I still could not get the contacts inside my eyes because my eyes were too small. AFter that I decided I would wear glasses or get eye surgery for the rest of my life.
I have contacts and have had them pretty much since I had to get glasses when I was like 12 (I was really into sports and my mom said she'd rather pay for contacts than replace a pair of glasses every other month). Once you wear contacts, glasses are sort of a poor relation. Sure, they enable you to see, but you don't have peripheral vision and they're essentially a foreign object on your face. Plus, in all honesty, I think I look better without my glasses. That being said, I do wear my glasses outside my house for the simple reason that I know wearing contacts all the time is not healthy for my eyes and I'd rather have my sight and deal with a little inconvenience/insecurity than have complications down the road. I wear my glasses a couple days a week, to work, out with friends- wherever it is I happen to be going... But, if I'm going somewhere I want to make a good impression or feel confident (job interview, first date, formal occasion), I always wear my contacts.
I wear them all day at school while walking from class to class. At home, I don't wear them as much unless I have a lot of homework. I have two pairs and I love them, I picked out, in my opinion, some cool designs. I don't want contacts at all so, I just wear glasses.
I only wear my glasses out side my house, I'll wear them at home if I'm watching a movie or something. I had gotten glasses back when I was like 9 years old, I use to never wear my glasses though. I finally started to wear them again a year and a half ago. I don't think I look bad in them, but it is very annoying when its raining and my glasses blur up.
I stopped wearing my glasses altogether because I look better without them. But I should still buy a pair at some point as I think my vision is getting gradually worse... but so far I didn't feel like spending money on it. It's costly.
