    I can’t believe how crap I was at seeing things until I picked them up, except I keep taking them off to look at stuff and going ‘nah, you see I can’t read that, but I can with my glasses’. Was all going well til my brother laughed and called me four eyes πŸ™ Not looking forward to the ‘now your used to them you can try contact lenses πŸ™ yuk

    Well, its a downward spiral after you get your first pair of glasses. I’m on my 3rd pair after 5 years, with each pair of glasses my prescription has got worse.

    I did kind of know to expect it, I had become slightly short sighted after the last test two years ago but not enough to need a prescription. Glad I’ve got them know though, designer ones obv 8)

    worn glasses since i was 6, you never fuly get used to them, but when i wore contacts a couple of years ago i looked wrong? Oh and at least you won’t have the playground issues to deal with. Not just the comments, I broke 2 pairs in a week just running around.

    Well, ben seems quite happy with them which is something. I’ve told a few people I’ve got them and they’ve replied ‘I’ve got perfect vision so no worry for me πŸ™‚ ‘ like I give a flying poop. 😯 lol

    I quite like them, tempted to wear a skirt an high heels tomorrow, get in the spirit of the whole secretary thing, πŸ™„
    But then again maybe not, I’ll stick out like a sore thumb

    Specky, 4 eyes, et all, again heard it all before… I’ve had glasses since I was 9ish (39 next month), some lovely horn rimmed NHS specials.
    Optician warned me mum, as a boy I might not want to wear them… **** it meant I didn’t have to sit 3 feet from the TV to watch it, I loved em as it meant I could actually see properly, and have never had a problem wearing them.
    Face it everyone gunna have to wear glasses (ok, maybe contact lenses) at some point, even those that get eye laser surgery….

    They look good
    Mine are Prodesign from Denmark.
    Only had them since Sept, one eye is bad the other is fine. The bad eye started to fall asleep when i was driving. I am not even up to full lens strength yet so things will get even clearer next Sept. 8)

    I’ve worn then since I was 10 – noticed I needed them when I started .22 shooting. Wear contact lenses for some sport (jumping when horse riding, anything outdoors in the rain, skiing) and occasionally for stylistic reasons. Have enjoyed becoming a multiple different glasses person since finding Glasses Direct (cheap!) Normally wear glasses when cycling but after having to ride blind (well ~3.5 dioptres out) on a particularly filthy wet and and muddy ride last year will be going with contacts and clear riding glasses for future wet rides. Yours look good!

    Don’t be distracted by all the details on the ground that you can now see when riding – I was amazed how well I flowed when I could only see the vague fuzzy outline of the approaching singletrack…

    Mine are osiris as well, I actually quite like wearing them, they make my face look less fat/round πŸ™‚ Don’t wear them enough though as I just can’t get into the habit. The difference they make for watching tv and films is quite amazing.

    been wearing specs since I was 6 (now 40).

    I started wearing contact lenses for sport and rainy days about 15 years ago and thats when my prescription stopped getting any worse , my optician suggested to me that many spectacle wearers peek out of the edges of their glasses and this causes strain on the eye which in turn can lead to the need for a stronger prescription.

    All I know is my eyes aren’t getting worse at the moment.

    That’s usually when my fancying process starts.

    Don’t think I would cope with contact lenses, I’ve got a real about touching my eyeballs πŸ˜•

    Got my first pair of glasses today!

    Not taking the piss but did you get a 2nd opinion before you bought your Gregory’s?

    Worn them since I was 13. What a joy that was at School. Don’t notice them any more. Contacts for cycling are a must as there is nowt worse than steamy windows.
