Which one do you prefer and why?

I normally wear glasses at home, if I go out, I change to lenses, mostly because I think I look like a nerd with glasses on, and also it's more convenient with lenses, I don't have to worry about glasses sliding off or bumping into anything.

I where glasses all the time.
My parents won't get me lenses and I personally would look weird because my friends think I look better with glasses on.
Plus, since I swim, I have goggle marks. So it covers it up.

I only have glasses but I hear from my friend who recently has contacts that it's hard to put contacts on because he usually pokes himself in teh eyes? Hmm, I'm not sure.

lol he'll get use to it!! it use to take me forever to put those things in my eyes.. my first time, the person who was working there helped me to put them on, and she kept saying 'y'know, if you don't open your eyes, you won't get them in there no matter how hard you try!' :roll:

Lol! I heard about that!
How often do you need to change contacts?

One time our swim coach told me to get lasik because I'm always squinting at the clock. xD

I don't wear glasses... 20/20 baby ;D

Chau, on the other hand does... he's like a -6 or something. He wears contacts 90% of the time, but he's been wearing his glasses for the past 2 weeks because he's getting Lasik soon :o

Um...I don't have any lenses, and I've been trying to convince my mom (not working too hard) Because I'm starting to get involved in a few sports and I can't run with glasses because they move around and then make me dizzy or fall off. I wear my glasses all the time (except when sleeping, of course) but sometimes, during long car rides, I don't need to specifically see anything so I take them off. I personally think I look better with glasses, but my mom says I look too old for my age. lol

I also plan on getting lasik when I'm older...

I normally buy lenses that last me for a year, although I wear them about 3x longer lol =x well I wear mine until they get uncomfortable..

One time our swim coach told me to get lasik
ohhh that's what I wanted to do!!! As soon as I have some extra cash and time, I'll go do it!

ooo let me know how the lasik go Ann!!

I think it's better to start wearing lenses until your eyes are fully developed, or it's not very good for your eyes, or so I've heard

and as for Lasik, I think last time I checked, you have to be over 21..

Yeah, lasik is for older people.
But, I like my glasses.
Smile
Even though I've dropped them about a hundred times and popped the lenses a billion times.
I love you

I used to hate wearing glasses because I thought I looked like a nerd, so I just wore lenses all the time. But I stopped because if I wear lenses for a whole day, my eyes get really dry and irritated at night, and sometimes they turn red, too. I finally bought a pair of thicker plastic framed glasses and threw out my lenses. I'm satisfied with my new glasses (my old ones were frameless, and the ones before those were thin metal frames), and it's too late to get contacts now haha. I feel like my eyesight changed since my eye appt a couple months ago =/ but I was thinking of getting a few pairs of contacts just for special events or something.

The thing that stinks about wearing glasses is that if you take them off and forget where you put them, you're basically a blind person looking for your eyesight, and it's not fun haha. I also look worse in pictures with them on, despite the no glare -__-

These are the glasses I have now:

I agree! Once, I was doing this short film thing at my friend's house, and it was supposed to be set in like pioneer times, so i figured there wouldn't be any glasses, took them off, threw them in a pile of leaves, and I was crawling on the ground, patting around. My "friends" gave me weird looks instead of helping me. =/
I think in pictures, I look better with glasses because I have blank frames and they sort of balance out my face since it's so colourless, but I get annoyed when someone's camera's flash reflects on my glasses. T_T

I've already got new glasses frames, and as soon as I get my eyes checked, I'll have the prescription to get them made. They're yellow and black. :3

I like your glasses Lise Very Happy

Chau had his Lasik surgery done this morning :o I saw the whole thing. It was very very interesting. He had minor complications after we left... but we went back to the doctor's office and he fixed it haha. Right now he's wearing these shades/goggles he looks so funny *lol* Then tomorrow morning we have to go back for a check up. The Lasik was supposed to be like $4,000, but he got a friends and family discount so it ended up being $2,200 Very Happy yay!

lol is it obvious Jess?? My eyes use to be like that, my left eye was the small one though, it was smaller by almost half because of the eyelids lol, but I grew out of it and some years ago, the eyelid of my left eye kind of just.. 'matured' LOL.. and now they're normal!! so it's hopeful Jess!! haha

haha, what a coincidence! So close~


aww Zoey you're glasses are Caaa-ute! I haven't talked to you in awhile...hope everything is going well!!
ahhaa, thanks. I like these ones 'cause when I run, they don't move. I have no idea why...when I had the lighter pair I wore before, whenever I ran, it'd move and make me dizzy. >_<
And everything's going as well as it can go. xP
