I prefer glasses right now, maybe I would take contact over glasses if I was in a younger bracket. I loose glasses often.

I am currently using glasses like you are but since my eye grade is not that high, I can still not wear them. anyway, if I were to choose, I would prefer contacts because it covers more visual field than glasses... i feel uncomfortable whenever I eat and whenever I look down, etc so I always take them off.

Well it's actually depending on the one who wears it. A lot of people I know have been using glasses for years now even if they can afford availing of the contact lenses. :) Or maybe they are just afraid of the technological advancement a contact lens has. :D

I wear glasses because they are more practical and they are more safe. Much precautions need not be taken while wearing glasses but glasses cant be used on every occasion. for example, it would look very strange to see a bride with her glasses so its better for her to wear contact. But it must not be forgotten that with contacts much more precautions have to be taken than glasses. I would like to have contacts as there are some occasions where it really feel strange to wear glasses. And wearing glasses changes your look but contact keep you as you are.

I prefer glasses, as wearing contact lenses almost drive me crazy at times, with irritations, consistent itching..I think, glasses are more practical, yet it can't be denied that the corrected eyesight catered by lenses are far better than glasses!

I can't really say that I PREFER glasses over contacts since I've never worn contacts...just glasses. I've always been afraid of contacts cause they dry out your eyes and...the whole sticking something directly on my eye sort of freaks me out... I guess I'll never know until I try.

i can say it depends on what i am going to do. at work i prefer contacts because i am a singer and mostly of the managers of the bars would rather let you wear contacts than to see you wearing eye glasses on stage. but it also depends on what outfit you are wearing. if we are wearing rugged then its okay to wear glasses. when reading i would rather wear glasses, so if i feel sleepy i can just put down my book and take of my glasses and go to sleep.

I prefer glasses. I can't get the prescription quite right with contacts, and I find contacts to be much more uncomfortable.

I wear glasses and would like to try contact but i'm always rubbing my eyes and that has been one major reason i have not tried for contact yet. I know quite a few people that wear contact but i still perfer my glasses. I don't care if i look like a nerd.

I prefer contacts when I am in public, out and about. I prefer my glasses when I am in for the day. I like glasses better, because I don't have to worry about my eyes irritating me. I do plan to try the Acuvue Oasis the next time that I do buy contacts... This will end all the dryness...

I wore contacts, or I should say a contact some years ago and I didn't like them at all. I could never quite get the hang of putting the contact in my eye and so I had a lot of eye irritations. I wear glasses now and that suits me just fine.

I have seen people taking them out and putting them in. I seem like a bit of hassle. Maybe then glasses is the better way to go. Thanks for responding.

I am the type of person who tends to be a bit lazy, so I prefer to wear glasses, no sterilization of lenses, no trouble of taking out and fixing on the tiny lenses. It is much more convenient to wear glasses as it can be taken off and put on whenever I need. When younger I liked to show my charming big eyes lol.... so I wore contact lenses but now hmm....I prefer comfort and convenience.

I'm all about the contacts! I've been wearing them for at least 15 years and can't imagine wearing glasses full time. it's bad enough having to wear them when I take my contacts out at night.

I wear both. Up until a year or so ago at home i wore glasses when i went anywhere i wore contacts. This is the first year that i haven't also got contacts when i got my new glasses (went yesterday),but i still have 5 sets from my last appointment 2 years ago so i decided that i wouldn't bother with it. If later i need them for whatever i can get them at that time.
