I think that they feel that is a sign of getting old and they hate the fact that their vision is changing .

I'm not proud! I will willingly tell you that I wear glasses for reading and close work. I sometimes don't bother when using the computer, unless the print is small because glasses make your eyes lazy. However, I would rather wear, and admit wearing glasses than wear contact lenses, out of vanity. How uncomfortable must they be and you have to keep taking them out and putting them in. Give me glasses any old day! :) Brightest Blessings.

That is very nice of you friend.I just want to know whether you know any reason why some people don't like other people to know about their glass wearing.

Lol.. I did try to intimate in my response without saying it outright but here goes nothing! I think people don't admit because they're vain, and perhaps feel inferior at having to wear glasses. Hence, a lot wear contact lenses, and even put up with the discomfort because they don't want it to be seen that they wear glasses.

Vanity is the right description my friend.

The first reason maybe they are using low quality glasses. Secondly they don't want to let people know that they have sight focusing problem. Thirdly they are still accumulating their sum of money to find one. Second last for their egoism. And finally maybe they could not afford to buy one.

Al the reasons sound good and reasonable to me.

It does not bother me at all. I wear glasses and have since I was in the 5th grade. I am not sure why it bothers people.
