I have been wearing glasses for as long as I can remember. I was the first in the family to get glasses at about the age of ten and got used to being called "four eyes" Throughout the years I have gone through numerous pairs of glasses from the huge, heavy round glasses to the skinny one that barely covered my eyes. Shopping for glasses is not my favorite thing but it has to be done every two to four years. Today I reluctantly went to get my new pair of glasses. Finding the right frame is such a chore but the optician was very pleasant and helpful. I tried several and just as I was about to settle for one I saw the one that that I fell in love with. Now I wait for 10 days before I get my new glasses.

Are you near-sighted? I am near-sighted and sometimes I have to put on my glasses so that I can see things clear. If I watch a 3D movie, I have also put on a pair of 3D glasses and namely I have six eyes already Some time ago I read a news online and it said that the Canadian doctors found out a new way to cure the near-sighted problem. It is very exciting and I hope it can work soon.

when i was about 10 i was told i needed glasses. i went to school and back then , in late 1950 s they were not popular as they are today. the kids all called me 4 eyes like your title and some said i looked like an old teacher. so they went in my desk and my mom punished me but they were still left there at the end of the year. lol I never had to have them actually till i was given catatact surgery a few years back. i never actually needed them at all till then in my 60s but at least today people look great in them. some better with them. they are very attractive these days

So you really didn't need glasses at age ten. If you did you would have worn them. I hated them but couldn't see without them. I didn't know one needed glasses after cataract surgery. Always taught the surgery made your eyes better.
