  • I'm nearsighted, and wear glasses. When I was checked for them, and I was verified for glasses, I was VERY scared. I didn't wear them for a year. When I tried them on, I warmed up to them. Now, I wear them everyday! I think it does something to my complexion! (Whatever's there, that is)

    • How bad was your vision, if you could make it without them?

    • I thought for a long time I had 20/20! I could see things all around, but at 50 feet away, things looked only the SLIGHTEST bit... blurry. So slight, that I could see leaves on trees, but they weren't crisp-looking. And after 15 years of this, I got seriously used to it. Glasses changed me!

    • Oh okay, well that's quite manageable. I do remember that I didn't really realize my eyesight getting worse at first, but mine got a lot worse.

  • Yes, I'm nearsighted.
    I've worn contacts, but dislike the dryness and irritation that they cause after having them on for over 5+ hours (and, on a typical school/work day, the time I have them on always exceeds 5 hours). Plus, sometimes they shift around and little "air-pockets" form between the contact lens and your eye and that's easily one of the most aggravating experiences ever.

    I've considered laser vision correction, but decided that I rather like having glasses as an additional accessory to coordinate with my outfits. :D

    • Yeah, that's why I've never tried contacts... plus I don't want to go poking my eyes. It's good to own it, having glasses I mean. I kind of like them actually.

  • I do, I need them for driving and actually also normally but I just don't wear them haha

  • Well, I have glasses but I very rarely wear them. Only when I have to see something important or when I'm driving in the dark in a place I've never been to.

    The biggest reason I don't wear my glasses is because they don't look very nice. I would have to get new glasses that I actually like but they're so goddamn expensive.

    • Yeah the prices are a bit ridiculous.. My last ones were over 500€ :s

  • Yes i'm nearsighted, i don't wear them most of the time but my vision is really crappy, i can't read signs or anything without them but i find it hard to get used to wearing glasses plus they get dirty all the time and i find them almost impossible to clean.

    • Oh man.. I couldn't be able to live like that. The one time I broke my glasses and we went to a bar with my friends, I felt like helpless puppy :D My vision absolutely horrible though, starts blurring a foot from my face..

      Glasses cleaning liquid, paper towel and then microfiber towel. Perfectly clean every time.

  • I can't see far, so I'm shortsighted. I've worn glasses since I was about 13, but I had issues with my vision before that. It just took my mom too long to take me to the eye doctor. I'm -3.75 on my right eye, with an astigmatism in my left. I wear glasses, but I want to try contact lenses

  • im near sighted. I dont like my glasses much. i personally think i look better without them because they hide my good features like my eyes, nose, and cheekbones.
    Still I prefer to wear my glasses because contacts irritate my eyes and give me a headache if i wear them for too long

  • Yeah I wear glasses. But I usually wear contact lenses when I'm out because they are more comfortable. My glasses always keep sliding off of my nose.

    i've heard if lasik but never considered it for myself, because I'm too scared to and also I've heard thagt if your diopter comes back after the surgery, you can never wear contacts again.

    • You need to go get your glasses readjusted.

      I haven't heard of that, good to know..

  • Sadly yes. Been wearing em since 2010. I can't see far away. Im too nervous to try lasik surgery and i dont think i can handle contacts.

  • Yes, I'm farsighted.
    I wear glasses since I was little and I hate them! They ruin my looks, they make me look dumb and ugly and guys are usually not attracted to girls who wear glasses.
    I thought about contacts, but I gave up on the idea of trying them because having something inside my eye would make me feel uncomfortable. I also have considered lasik, but I can't do it until I move to another country.

  • I'm nearsighted. I like my glass, since they are better than contacts, and I look better with glasses on. Contacts get uncomfortable if it's windy out or if its dry, and I can't see well with my contacts on so I dont wear them often. I've thought about laser correction but I know a few people whose vision has gotten worse because of it, and I dont wanna make my eyes worse then they are.

  • I’m nearsighted! I got glasses in 1st grade and wore glasses for a long time.

    I started wearing contacts when I started high school, because it was just easier with sports. I like my contacts, you just put them in and not worry about them for the day. (I have one Day lenses so I can throw them out when I’m done). The only thing that bugs me is when it’s really windy outside and your eyes get very dry.

    I have REALLY bad eyesight (-5.5 if anyone was wondering) but I’m only 17 so I may wait a little to seriously consider lasik.

    • That is pretty bad yeah.. I have -3.5 in right and -3.75 in left. Might want to wait a bit yeah.

  • I'm nearsighted but only wear my glasses at home. While being outside I prefer contacts because they're a lot more convenient to me.

    I don't consider laser vision correction because my eye sight isn't that bad.

  • Yes, nearsighted and had them since I was 9. I checked into lasik but didn't like the idea of having one eye for near and one for far. Had contacts for a few months but injured my shoulder and couldn't take them in and out with one hand, so stopped wearing contacts and just never got back into it.

    When I'm riding my bike and a bee bounces off my glasses, I'm glad I have them.

  • I'm nearsighted. Not much, -1'75 each eye.
    I have worn glasses since I was probably 12-13. And been the last 3 years alternating between these and contacts.
    Glasses are way more comfortable on the eyes, but as I do some contact sports I use contacts for that (so I won't break my glasses)
    I also feel sexier with contacts.
    And as I'm planning to work on a emergency service I may have to have surgery done.

  • Sometimes I do. I have to wear them all the time but It is just counter-productive to wear glasses in rain/snow etc. or in hot environments since it just keeps sliding off. I can see well enough without them.

  • I'm nearsighted. I wear contacts for a while, then I wear glasses for a while. I don't like wearing glasses, but I have to give my eyes a break from contacts. Girls seem to like me in glasses more, though.
