Who wears glasses?

Hey, I just got my new pair today. I've been wearing them for about 5 years, but I lost my first pair somewhere, second pair in Paris(These were NICE, transition lenses, all this anti-scratch stuff), and the third pair in DC a little over a year ago. But I finally got around to gettin' me some more. I needed em though. I, IMO, drive fine without 'em, but apparently I'm a hair's breadth from having a driving restriction because of my sight. So I'm gonna wear 'em from now on. Unless I lose them, which hopefully I won't, since they make me look smart as anything. So who wears the specs?

I have them and I wear my glasses pretty much everywhere. They can be a pain, but I really do need them!

I'm "blind." O.K., I'm not, but I definitely need glasses. I've worn them since I was 9. However, at 16 I bought myself contacts and have worn them ever since. In other words, I wore glasses every day for 7 years and contacts every day for, uh... hold on... I have to get a machine to add all these numbers ... 5 ... 10 ... 15 ... 20 ... almost there...ah here it is: 21 years now. Why, I've worn contacts longer than you've been alive UnforgettableLemon.

Glasses are too heavy on my ears and nose - and yes, I have light lenses. I told you I was "blind."

Whoa, that's scary, doctorwho. I also got glasses when I was 9, then I got contacts when I was 16. Of course, that was only 3 years ago.

I too am horribly blind. Man, its weird walking around without any glasses/contacts. It's like some kind of psychedelic dream.

Glasses since ! was 9, contacts since I was 15. I'm sooo blind without them! I can't even see the alarm clock right next to my face in the morning without putting my glasses on. I'm looking into laser surgery, though. Would be so great to never have to deal with glasses again!

Just for reading and at the computer, although I'll occasionally wear them around the house (they're light and comfy). i've only had them around a year, but I probably should've had them a couple years earlier.

I cant see anything at all in the distance, lol. If Im driving people are always saying "watch out for that car!" And Im like "what car?" CRUNCH "Oh THAT car..."

Im actually losing my sight up close too...Maybe one day I will have half as much talent as Lloyd Rees!

Starting wearing them at age 16. I usually wear contacts, especially in the summer. I am contemplating getting the laser eye surgery. However, I am told that I look highly intelligent with my glasses and I need all the help I can get.

Glad you saw this fors, just ti fill ya in, he was virtually blind toward the end of his life. The irony here being his brillinat use of colour. Especially as time went on and his work became more subtle and muted.

Brilliant man imo.
