    How many of you have glasses?

    I just got fitted for a pair today because after my wreck on friday I realized my nearsightedness was worse than I thought. Who else rides with glasses?

    Me. I do everything in 'em though, ski, swim, all of it. Been hit twice with 'em on, but it was more of a veer in to me both times. Never fell off. They kind of make me nervous because I always get glass lenses so I don't **** 'em up immediately. Think I'd like Lasik someday. . .

    I wore glasses all of my childhood, but now I wear contacts. Contacts are so much better. I would like Lasik but my prescription hasn't stabilized yet. I'm so blind its ridiculous.

    I have glasses. If i didn't wear them every minute of everyday, I'd probably die.

    Without them, I would have to be two inches (literally) away from this screen to read anything.

    I wear glasses everyday except for when it rains, like today. It's not so bad. I dont even notice mine anymore. Get some nice frames that seem durable and dont get too upset when they get beat up. I do everything in mine. My versace's still have some mud on the side from going spelunking in them this summer.

    Glasses blow for any sort of sporting activity. Contacts are your friend.

    I've had glasses since I was two. My left eye is lazy, so there is a strong ass prescription on that side and clear glass on the right. Go figure. You can't tell but if I don't wear them for a few months i start to look all unfocused, like i just got punched.

    Edit: oh, and I wore contacts for a few years...they were nice, but too big of a pain to take out and put in every day. Glasses are easier, and for sporting activities I just take 'em off. I guess that isn't an option if you need them on at all times, but it works for me.

    I want contacts again but I've been wearing glasses since I was in the 3rd grade.

    When I wear contacts, I feel like I look like a jackass. I've got Clark Kent syndrome. Completely different person and no one recognizes me. I don't even get anything cool like xray vision to compensate.

    So what about on sunny days? Prescription sunglasses, or normal sunglasses+contacts?
