I'm as blind as a bat, and has to wear glasses for distances. At one time I was able to wear contact lenses. But then I developed Dry Eye Syndrome, and I'm back to wearing glasses.

Lets see. We know that ABEL and Martha wear them.

I joined the club in fourth grade. Now I welcome my fourth graders into the Four Eyes Club. It makes it a little easier (or weirder) for them when they get glasses.

I started wearing glasses in fourth grade ( I got braces and glasses on the same day). I finally got contacts (soft) in high school and then had some sort of problem with my eyes getting too dry and I was told I couldn't wear contacts anymore. All through college I wore glasses. I look *awful* in glasses. I couldn't see a thing without them though. People would wave to me and I would have no idea who they were. I did start to recognize people by the way they moved though.

Then, three years ago I had lazik. I didn't used to be able to see the clockradio time that was three feet away from me. Now I can see the VCR clear across the room. That was the best money I have ever spent (besides seeing U2 several times during the Elevation tour!).

i've been wearing glasses since i was two or three. i had an eye injury at birth and i'll have to wear glasses forever because of it. as a baby, i wore an eye patch (a stick-on type, i didn't look like a small fry pirate). when i first wore glasses, i had to wear both even up to when i was in elementary school, but luckily by then it was only for a couple hours so i could wear it after school so i wouldn't be teased.

i had to wear glasses even when swimming. luckily i don't anymore, but i do have to wear them essentially anytime i'm awake. if i don't, my right eye (the damaged one) will drift and i'll get a really bad eye tension headache from it.

well, it was either have this eye injury or die so i can live with it, especially since now it doesn't hinder me, i mean i can drive just fine and everything, as long as i wear my glasses. i have depth perception problems sometimes though and it freaks me out. luckily i just overestimate (things look farther away than they are) so i've never almost caused an accident by darting into traffic thinking i had more room than i did. usually it's the other way around: i look like the idiot waiting for an invitation to turn.

If I don't wear my glasses or contacts, I can't see anything more than six inches away.

Worst pick-up line I ever got:

Do you want to know something sad yet pretty funny?

When I was really young (like in pre-school/kindergarten) they found out I had a lazy eye and prescribed me to wear an eye patch and glasses to try to correct it!

Man I looked like such a goofy sucker with that thing on! It would have been nice if they would have given me a cool eye patch, like a pirate one. But all they gave me was one that totally looked like a huge bandaid I'd stick over my eye.

The really sad thing was that wearing that for like 2 years did nothing to improve my lazy eye, so they just scrapped it. So I ended up only having to wear glasses for like 2 years of my life (the same 2 years where I was lovingly refered to as "Patch Guy" by me schoolmates!

(Luckily my lazy eye isnt very apparent, I just cant read with my right eye, I can still see, but it's blurry)

I have to wear glasses for my chem labs. They're really thick ugly glasses because I haven't gotten the silver frames I want yet. The rest of the time I wear contacts.

I wish one would make a pass at me

I've worn glasses since 2nd or 3rd grade...my teacher noticed I would turn my head to one side to favor the better eye when I'd read the chalkboard...she suggested I have my eyes tested, and I did and have worn glasses ever since
