I don't need one now as of the moment, but maybe in a few years time I have to get one. I definitely love reading, and I would spend my whole day enjoying this passion.

I don't! because I wear glasses not only when I read but also when I write when I do chores, the only time I take my glasses out was when I take a bath and when I sleep (and sometimes not) I been wearing glasses ever since I was 8

I always had perfect vision, until I reached the age when it is normal for eyesight to start to deteriorate. Now I need my glasses to see any form of print, and I need them viewing a computer screen. Wearing reading glasses does not spoil my enjoyment of books as my eyes do not get tired when I am reading for several hours, even when I have also been using a computer all day.

I do wear glasses to read. I have those "over fifty" eyes. I love to read and I hope the glasses will keep me going for a long while. I hope I don't get any diseases of my eyes that would prevent me from reading.

Yes, I am supposed to be wearing glasses especially while I am reading since I have problems with my eyes, I get bad headaches when I don't wear them and try to read for long periods of time like I do sitting at the computer. Right now though my glasses are broke due to my nephew breaking them. So I am going to try to save up for another pair.I love reading...me to.. I could spend all day reading books.

Not just for reading. They must be worn at all times. Except for when I'm sleeping.

Hi, JannaLee. Yes, I wear reading glasses. I swear, the month I turned 40 everthing on the written page shrunk a font size or two. I'm like you, I love reading and would spend my whole day doing it if I could.

Throughout my life I have worn glasses, earlier it was only farsightedness after crossing 40 even for reading I need separate lenses so I have a combined spects.

Yes, I wear my glasses all the time because I can't see far and if I'm reading a book or at the computer my head aches when I'm not wearing glasses. I've been wearing glasses for a long time now since college then back agin when I started working.

Sometimes. : ) If I read too much, then I would take my glasses off, but otherwise, I'd keep them on. If I took them off every time, I'd smash them because I forgot they were there or something. :P Besides, it's too tiring to always take them off. : )

Yes I wear glasses to read and to use the computer. It helps me see the things clearer and I feel that my eyes are not strained as much when I have glasses on and am using the computer for long hours at a time.

i also love reading, and do so for at least 1 hour every day. i do have to wear glasses but not for reading. i cant see far away..like the tv or road signs, so i have to have my glasses on for most of the day. however at night when i sit down to read or get on the computer, i can finally take them off. the book and monitor are close enough for me to see without any problems.
