Got my first pair of glasses today!
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 🙁 Not looking forward to the ‘now your used to them you can try contact lenses 🙁 yukPosted 7 years ago
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 🙂 ‘ 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, 🙄Posted 7 years ago
But then again maybe not, I’ll stick out like a sore thumbCash Cowell

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.Posted 7 years ago
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….chiefgrooveguruMember
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…Posted 7 years agocarlosgMember
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.Posted 7 years ago
I went to Specsavers! No more snogging randoms at trainstations for me 🙂

Don’t think I would cope with contact lenses, I’ve got a real about touching my eyeballs 😕Posted 7 years ago
