* Do you wear glasses? Do you like wearing them, or no? Why or why not?

They're okay. I used to wear them, but I always broke them. I might get another pair eventually to wear at night, but I much prefer contacts.

* How do you feel about other people who wear glasses - do you find them to be an attractive feature? Why or why not, or does it just depend (if so what does it depend on?)

I think people can look attractive with glasses on. This girl for example:



She's pretty, but in reality, I'm really just looking past the glasses at the face. So I would say that attractive people can make glasses an attractive accessory, but I don't think the glasses themselves make anyone attractive.
This reply is pretty much spot on. In my own case, my family was pretty lucky in this regard. For instance, my grandmother never used glasses.


She always drank straight from the bottle.

I feel pretty and confident with my glasses on. I don't care much what people think. I miss them already. Not wearing them since my vision has improved. Sun glasses make me feel like a model. Lol!

Confession: I used to wear fake glasses in HS all the time, which feels like a long time ago now. My friends didn't actually know they were fake. What a nerd.

Now I get to wear the real deal. Cat eye glasses are my current favorite.

And glasses on guys. Yes, please! :LOL:

I had to get a new pair of glasses to improve my distance vision in order to pass the vision test at the DMV. It says on my license that I am suppose to wear corrective lenses when I am driving but I keep them in the case inside my glove department. They did dramatically improve my distance vision but the thing is, they are transition bifocals but I really can't read with them. Not to worry though, I have a pair of reading glasses too.

I did pass the test by the way at the DMV. The thing is, I had to bring a signed form from my optometrist that my vision was corrected by the prescription. The doctor wrote a recommendation that my vision be checked by the DMV on a annual basis. That presented a major hassle as I really did not relish the thought of yearly visits to the DMV to get my drivers licensed renewed. The clerk at the DMV just gave the form a quick casual look, missed seeing the checked box about testing every 12 months and promptly issued me an 8 year license because I am considered a safe driver. It expires on my birthday in 2027. I will then be 72 years old, God willing of course.
Your wife will not be happy when you bring home the ticket stating you were not wearing your glasses while driving..... Tickets cost money ya know.....you have been warned....

There are so many gorgeous frames out there now days. I have a black and turquoise pair that I have been told I look like a librarian in them as they make me look smart... I have another pair that are wire frames and are very attractive on. My prescription sunglasses are cat eye shaped and have gotten compliments on those too.

So you don't need to worry about having to wear glasses as some make you look attractive and you will get noticed....

Hey Everyone,

A conversation with some fellow CC'ers had me thinking about my lifelong arch nemesis - wearing a pair of glasses.

Now first let me say that like many things in life, I have absolutely NOTHING against glasses in general and love them ON OTHER PEOPLE, but for me personally, I've fought against wearing glasses all my life, and unfortunately, lost the battle.

The main issues I have with glasses are that:

1. Due to various (but correctable) optical challenges, my prescription is always unbearably heavy, even though I pay extra to have them ground down to be supposedly as thin as possible. Glasses, to me personally, are an uncomfortable burden.

2. Unfortunately, my contact-wearing days are long gone, and I'm terrified of any permanent procedures like Lasik (plus, I was told I'd probably have to wear reading glasses anyway, so why even bother.)

3. I am a child of the 80's, and back then, wearing glasses was NOT considered cool at all. Most of us grew up on teen romances in which some nerdy girl who disappeared into the background is transformed into a 10+ swan, and what's the first thing they always do?

They take away those "horrible, nerdy, uncool" glasses - and put her in a pair of contacts. Can anyone think of even one "ugly duckling to swan" story in which a girl is still allowed to wear glasses? But what about people who can't or don't want to wear contacts?

And if I really break it down.. I was afraid that if I had to wear glasses all the time, people would see me as this boring, introverted girl who mostly reads in her spare time. In other words, I was afraid - that they were going to see the REAL me.

However, one of the modern trends I've been very happy to "see" (bad pun intended), is that glasses have become not only acceptable, but are now even seen as a bit of a statement and cool fashion accessory. Even though I still wouldn't wear them if I had a choice, I know I'm a lot less self-conscious of them than when I was a kid.

And I sure hope there are a lot fewer kids out there who feel like they have to pretend they don't need glasses just because they're afraid they'll be made fun of.

How about the rest of you?

* Do you wear glasses? Do you like wearing them, or no? Why or why not?

* Would you/do you choose not wear glasses if you are able, and why?

* How do you feel about other people who wear glasses - do you find them to be an attractive feature? Why or why not, or does it just depend (if so what does it depend on?)

I personally love it when a person's glasses make a statement about the person's style or personality. I love it when a person isn't afraid to wear something totally quirky, but yet you know they're being their authentic self. :)

How about you?
I wear them. Also they protect my eyes from the sun. We have harsh uv rays here.
The only annoying thing is when you need to go swimming or have to wear a helmet or something.

Ive gotten used to wearing glasses. I recently got new onces but they were quite expenive for what they are (plastic frames) I cant wear the metal kind with nose pads that pinch your nose. My frames are red. Ive had different ones over the years. You need to make sure they suit your face shape. Dont go for trendy go for what really suits you.

I just started having to wear glasses like 2 years ago, after having my son.... my vision changed more than I expected lol. It’s bad when you’re in the front pews in church looking up at the big digital screen and you can’t read the lyrics to the songs being played....

So, yes... I wear glasses now, I don’t HAVE to wear them all the time, just for reading and while at work and of course driving. Cause you know some People have the struggle with the astigmatism and it sucks. Contacts don’t fix that... but glasses do! 👍🏻
