Hi, i just wanna know how many of mylot-ers in this reading section are wearing glasses. I am wearing glasses since high school, but i also remove them because sometimes i wear contact lenses. Compare to wear contact lenses, i prefer to wear glasses, because is more comfortable and safety to my sensitive eyes. How about you, do you wear glasses also? Since when?

i've tried wearing contact lenses to my work where i was in front of the computer the whole time, and unfortunately, at the end of the day, i felt my eyes hurting and saw them red which suddenly alarmed me and decided not to wear contacts when i have to work in front of the computer.

Till I reached the age of 50 I was not wearing glasses even to read small letters, I could do so without the aid of glasses. Now for the past 3 or 4 years, I am have problem (it is natural) that I need glasses to read. I do not wear when I go out, or drive the car or when I am using the computer. Only when I read newspaper/book/magazine, I wear glasses. ] TIPS: I was told by an expert to read Robert Bateman eye exercise book to improve the eye sight.

I've been wearing glasses since i was in my twenties. I had an interesting process years ago in grad school where I had a realization that my glasses protected me from feeling dumb----i always thought glasses made people look smart so I wanted to wear them. In the middle of this process, my glasses actually broke on me so I went months without wearing them and my eye sight was just fine. Well, I'm back to wearing them...doc says my eyes need them and things are blurry so who knows? is it medical is it emotional.

i wear my eyeglasses since 2nd year college and until now. i feel my eyes is becoming more and more prone to blurry due to my nature of work. i sit in front of the computer for more than 12 hours at work and at home. so i guess i am the oneto blame for getting eye glass at early age.

During the second year of my middle school days I found myself always suffered migraine without knowing any reason. Later my elder brother took me to a doctor and he advised me to wear glasses when doing reading or writing. Since then I have been using glasses and find that I have no suffering of migraine anymore unless reading without glasses.

Yes, I wore glasses since high school too. I am 25 now. Sometimes, when I go to parties or company functions, I wear contacts. At work, I wear my glasses, it's easy to remove and wear back.

I got my first glasses in 7th grade, but I didn't need them to read, I needed them for distance. I got my first reading glasses about 8 yrs ago. I'm wearing them now, but I really can still read the computer screen most of the time, its just easier with the glasses on.

Yes I am wearing glasses,since my first year college.actually i hate wearing glasses.i love my normal eyesight.I think wearing glasses is more safe than wearing contact lenses,because it prevents infection from getting in the eyes.

Well I am wearing glasses since I was 6yrs. Bad eyesight is a hereditary problem with me and today I am practically blind without my glasses. But since my 11th standard, I have been wearing contact lenses since my glasses were too heavy and were leaving ugly marks around my nose. I am more comfortable wearing lenses when I am outdoor, I feel I look better too. However, at home I wear my heavy glasses just to keep in touch with them.

I am 31 years old and I have been lucky so far. Never had to wear contacts or eyeglasses. Still have perfect vision. Maybe it's because I don't read books a lot. Just a few pages of the newspaper. LOL

I wear both contact lenses and glasses. I've been wearing glasses since the age of 10 and started wearing contact lenses when I was 18. I prefer to wear contact lenses but I tend to take them out as soon as I get home as my eyes get quite tired and dry after wearing them all day.

I consider myself fortunate. I do not have to wear glasses. My brother has to wear glasses. He also has lazy eye and has to wear an eye patch. He doesn't wear it as much as he is supposed to. His vision is very bad.

Yeah, I wear glasses but I also use contacts. Right now I'm out of my contacts but I will be getting them again soon. I have had glasses since I was 20. I'm now 29. So, about 9 years. I really love contacts though. At first I didn't like them but after I left them in for a few days (taking them out at night of course) I couldn't even tell that I had anything in my eye. I think that they are the most coolest invention. Well, that and Tampons (sorry but it's true!) LOL....

No I don't wear glasses. My brother and his daughter does though and I think its only been a couple of years since they have been wearing them. I think my husband needs them also - he is forever squinting at the tv and laptop!
