pkc3000, actually wearing glasses could be inconviniencing but since you seldom use it while reading it is good. There are some made to correct the eyes defects and you wear a little while and drop it. But it is well! cheers!

Dear friend, I used to wear from my 1st class onwards, later I removed and in between and again started to use it. But now I use it when I find it difficult to read or view

yes, it is advisable to wear depending on what purpose it is made, some are just to correct the sight and some are for reading other are worn always. It is well!

Yes I wear eye glasses when reading. I hate it too I am not used to eye glasses and they slide down on my nose, I look up and I can't see good with them on. I forget where they are when I need them. That is why I don't read as much as I use too.

I wear contact lenses because I am far-sighted but need reading glasses, unless I am in very strong, bright light. If you get the high-spectrum light bulbs (look on mercola.com), it helps to read with no glasses. I can!

okwusman1 you will find that eyes get old and you will end up needing glasses at some point in your life. If they hurt you then you are wearing the wrong ones.

They have different types of surgeries but they do not last and I am still skeptical of it. They do have bi-focal contacts, and I use them, but they do take getting used to. I do not use them all of the time. If you are getting headaches from your reading glasses, it is most likely you need a new prescription as I never get headaches from mine.

It's not necessary for me to read with glasses. Usually I will wear glasses when I am watching TV. My eyesight is still OK to read the books. I love China

I use them. In fact for so many years I have been doing that. I can even sleep wearing glasses. If you really get headache, it means you do not have real problem. Also, it is possible your glass power is not matching with your requirement.

the headache irritates me that is why I decided to dump the glass because I can read without it.

If your prescription is correct and the frames fitted to your face, glasses should relieve a headache instead of causing it. I'd say that something is wrong.

something might be wrong but i don't know, that is why i hate glasses and i don't want to use it.

Nope i do not but i need to but lost my glasses awhile ago. I love reading.

your eyes are good that is why you did not replace the lost eyes glass. Those whose eyes are bad can easily replace their glasses when stolen or lost. cheers!

Yes I wear glasses while reading as I cannot see to read without them. I am getting old and while I had perfect eyesight for most of my life your eyes just get old and you either wear glasses or give up reading. I did not like glasses either so I gave up reading for years. Now I am enjoying reading again. If your glasses are giving you headaches then they are too strong and you need to have your eyes properly tested by an optometrist. You should only wear glasses for reading that have been designed for reading. In a proper eye test they test for how your eyesight works at different distances. I only need glasses for reading. Some people need different glasses for reading and driving etc. If you wear the wrong glasses for the wrong task you will get eye strain and that will give you headaches.
