Or "foureyes unite". I couldn't decide.

Anyways, I just got glasses today. Who else wears them? What kind of glasses do you have? What strength, for how long, was it weird in the beginning etc.

I might upload a pic of me in them later. Apparently my eyes have different faults so one glass is minus and other is plus. Shit looks weird now but I can read much better.

I don't wear them now, but I had an eye exam the other week (I have them yearly because of my Diabetes, it can cause eye problems), and apparently I'll need them in a few years.

Something about my eye's being more rugby ball shaped, and encouraging muscle weakening.

It's kinda weird when you put them on for the first time, but after a while you forget you have them on. Then it becomes weird when you take them off. (you can't see shit afterwards)

I had glasses for like 2 years now, I refused to wear outside the house and lessons for about 1 year but now i take them anywhere.

I dont know which type but the size is 4.75 and I took really thin ones which cost more.

I have to wear glasses for driving. I take them to gigs and stuff, but probably should wear them for other stuff. But since I only spent like £20 on them, they'd probably fall apart if I did that.

Come to think of it, I got a thing in the post about needing my eyes retested. Should probably arrange that.

EDIT: I had to wear glasses when I was about 5 for a while. Then we moved house, I went to a different opthalmologist, and was told I didn't need them. They had Roland Rat on.

I wear contacts most of the time, but I wear these when I want to have four eyes.

I've had glasses for the past ten years. I suffer myopia and astigmatism. I have pretty strong lenses. I'm pretty blind for my age.

I love wearing glasses Fashion accessory. Right now I got a pair of Oakley Ratchet 4.0. I also have Gucci corrective shades too.

I also hides the poaches under my eyes.

For me it's like the plane/lines are all weird. Like if I look down on the ground it's not entirely levelled if that makes sense. Also my stereo vision seems misaligned.

I guess I'll get used to them. Atleast my left eye is making itself useful.

I've had glasses since I was eight, so about 11 years now already. I have -6.25 with a cylinder of -0.50 in my right eye and -5.25 with a cylinder of -0.50 in my left eye. At first, I thought they were weird and I had to get used to them, but now it's normal. Kids used to make fun of me in high school because I wore glasses, but f*** them, they were idiots anyway. I can't find a picture of my specks, but they're flashy black with yellow stripes

First time I had glasses, I was feeling like I was drunk. You get used to it pretty fast. I'm pretty sure you'll love it.

I love shopping for new glasses!

High school, where kids celebrate preppy conformism by putting other people down.

In high school, they told us to celebrate the differences. Yeah, right...

I did up until October last year; contacts FTW!

What strength? Yeah, +11,25 on left and +11,75 on the right one. (I may be wrong, but not too far off; at least the 11 is right)

Go for soft contact lenses; the hard one simply fall off after the smallest knock on the head.

I hope so. Earlier today I injured my hand while barbequing because I miscalculated the angle and depth.

Yeah I can definitely see this glasses thing becoming an interesting accessory. I got black ones now but I'm going to see if I can find a more leather/brown look

Short sighted. Can't read or recognise people's faces at a distance. I can easily get around without them, but for lectures and for general comfort it's nice. I'm on my third pair. Been wearing infrequently (due to breakages as well) since I was 16.

Last time I had an eye test I tried on about five different glasses randomly. The last pair suited me. I had them on my face for two seconds before saying 'these will do'. It was so swift one of the staff members started laughing. The guy serving me was just 'wtf'. They didn't mention the price until adjustments and stuff which took awhile. I didn't bother looking at the price because I was stupid. I think they cost me £200. At this point I was too embarrassed to go back and say 'I'm sorry, I didn't notice, can I try other glasses?' so went through with the transaction. I would not pay that much again. Making sure these ones last.

'cuse the messy hair. Bloody shower hoggers.

Im shortsighted, I only realy need them for watching tv. That said I still manage to loose them in my house a least once a day.

I'd also suggest not to drive a car/moto/bicycle/crossing a busy street with your new eyes. :p

It's like getting a new camera. You need some adjustments to really feel the awesomeness of it.

I have been using glasses since a was a kid, and after less than one year of using contacts, everything seemed to be much closer than I think. (Might've been the really thick glasses.)

I have -2.25 and -2.50, left and right eye. As for the brand, I opted to be a douche and bought some Hugo Boss pair. I've had glasses since I was ten or something.

Edit: yay, pic.

9 wondrous years of shortsightedness. I'm also getting more astigmatic as time goes on.

I hope my sight continues to worsen. I asked the lens cutter to make my lenses as thick as possible, so I could get that coke bottle look, but he failed completely. the only option is to surpass legal blindness.

When I was smaller I had a lazy eye and had to have two surgeries to correct it and I have astigmatism, I've had glasses ever since, so pretty much since I was a year old. I had round wire frames until I was 18 the I switched to the black rectangular shaped frames I have now.
