Transitions or not 10 Replies

Forced No Glasses Time: Yay or Nay? 1 Reply

Do you play the glasses swap game? 17 Replies

What annoys me is when you get people who want glasses for some reason because apparently having bad eyesight is desirable?!?! Sure, glasses can look cool but it's not fun when you need them to actually be able to see things.

The people who think glasses are still uncool... *shakes head in disappointment*

Glasses are actually pretty stylish now! (Unless you get the hipster ["nerdy"] glasses...yuck!) Plus, yay for vision!

Thanks! If you plan to get some, check out first, or else contact me - there are three main types, and some have limitations.

Great thing is watching people's reactions - have worn them for gigs, in general and once at a presentation of cognitive psychology papers (with tweed jacket, of course).

My eyes are pretty bad, but with the tiny lens size this is less of a problem as the middle part of lenses is a lot thiner than the edges 8)

Any one else like pince nez? Got the frames from FleaBay (£33) and had them glazed (£31). Very steam punk.

I've had glasses since I was maybe 6 I think. I just recently got contacts but I don't wear them as often. I'd rather wear my glasses.

I wear contacts too. I have contacts, two pairs of single vision glasses, two pairs of bifocals (one I use for reading music). I also have several pairs of reading glasses.

I'm upset that I only need my glasses for distance which means just school!

I actually made my mom buy me glasses when I was in elementary. I made them my barrier between my fellow students and myself. I hated people. D:

I think I need a new pair. My vision is blurry.
