Hello Ultimate Guita, I was just wondering how many of you wear glasses or optical aids, because I bet alot of you do but your embarassed to admit you do as you will branded as a "Geek", or an emo if you wear those thick black framed ones.

I had perfect vision until I was about 9, and i had to wear glasses. I have a lazy right eye, and its embarassing as hell when its having a lazy day. I swear, if I take my glasses off and try not to think about focusing in on somthing, my vision becomes somewhat normal, and I can do most things without my glasses, but as soon as im aware im not wearing my glasses, its almost as if my brains telling me I need them, and I loose clarity, and pretty much all the diginity in my right eye > I can never look people in the eyes especially without glasses in fear my eye goes crazy and it freaks some people out, ive had people say "ew ew ew ewwww!" at me, which isnt nice, but I dont blame them.

I tried contact lenses for the first time last month, and the were great, a little uncomfrtable to start off with, but I dont know why I havent had them before.

My biggest complaint about glasses is that when you walk in from the cold into somwhere warm, they steam up like mad, and it takes ages for them to get to room tempreture

Anyway, ive put a poll up, but lets see (haha)

they were kinda weird at first, because i'd had glasses since 5th grade, never worn them because the were like coke bottles, and gay, but these are great. I wear them all the time now, and they really feel like i'm not even wearing them now, because I can hardly even notice them on my face.

in short, theyre awesome, and I've been told I look way hotter with them on

I've worn glasses since the third grade and I got contacts in the ninth grade. I still wear my glasses on occasion, like in the morning or at night when I'm not wearing my contacts. I'm blind as a flipping bat.

I've been wearing glasses since 4th grade. Without glasses, everything I see is pretty much blurred. I can't see faces, words or pictures from even a foot away

Well the thing is, the older you get, the thinner the tissue on your eye lens becomes, usually, this causes long sightedn vision, however if you were younger and required coke bottle bottom glasses, you were short sighted, as you get older this will improve as the tissue detertiates and causes normal vision. Some people are effected differntly.

Its suprising the ammount of people who require glasses, but wont go to an optition because they are scared, or they dont want to look silly with glasses.

heh, you look a bit like me

Its suprising when I got contacts, the ammount of girls "checkin' me out" was unreal, where as before I was just passed on as another nerd, oh well, thats stereotyping for you.

I have been wearing glasses for sixteen years.I can't function without them and I never tried contacts.I don't know if I could keep my eye open to touch them.

I don't know why people get embaressed about their glasses unless of course they are really dumb looking.I don't think it makes people less attractive.Sometimes it does the opposite.

I was the same. I spoke to my optition about it, and he said laser surgery is purley cosmetic, and really only works on short sighted people. Apart from that, mesure twice, cut once!

You could really get your eyes ****ed up if they get it wrong, which they DO sometimes.

Look into getting contact lenses, theyre good.

I wear glasses. My sister also used to wear glasses but she thought that they don't suit her so she got contacts. I like my glasses, I look kinda cool.. kinda hacker-ish. But I don't need the glasses outside school.

My thoughts exactly. I mean, yes, it'd be a heck of a lot easier not to deal with glasses or contacts by having surgery, but what if they botched it? Then you might have to deal with even worse vision for the rest of your life.

I'm always afraid that if I were to ever have laser surgery, there'd be like a power surge or something and it would fry my eye. And that would suck.

I tried contacts for the first time last year, and i've not looked back since (no pun intended). I saw an advert for some contacts on tv, when they put them in they looks all amazed. It really is like that though, I'll have laser eye correction when i'm old enough but i'm still not sure about the long term effects.

wow, theres alot of "too cool" people now. Starting to drive are we JamieB? what car are you getting?

I wear glasses currently. I've tried contacts, but I can't get them in my eye...

Hopefully getting laser correction when I'm older (maybe it'll be on the NHS by then )
