    So, I'm noticing I don't see things in distance too well, but it's not really bad yet. However, I thought it would be good idea to get myself either or glasses or contact lenses, but I'm not too fond of either. I disslike glasses because any kind of glasses look silly on me and I'm worried how contact lenses work(putting it in and out) but I'll have to get myself something....So I don't know, do any of you wear glasses/contact lenses? Which do you like more? Would you recommend me lenses or are they a lot of work?
    Any advice is welcome!

    I wear glasses and contact lenses.

    I'd say both have advantages and disadvantages.

    In my case I have to wear them otherwise I can't see a thing. when i go out, college, parties, pub, etc i wear my contacts and my glasses at home. sometimes I feel too lazy to put my contacts in, so i just go out wearing my glasses.

    One piece of advice: if you decide to wear contacts, make sure you have a pair of glasses. Your eyes need to rest from the lack of direct oxigen. I had a problem with this cos I worn contact lenses for too long without break cos i didnt have a pair of specs, and couldnt wear them for almost a year.

    i love the freedom that cpntacts give you, not having to wear glasses and be able to see perfectly. it just annoys me when i get sleepy or stoned, my eyes become tired and dry and feel so uncomfortable!!...i am seriously considering laser surgery in the near future.

    I used to have glasses and contacts, I liked neither but preferred glasses because contacts were kind of a hassle.
  4. with glasses you can just put them on when you really need to. so it doesnt matter if they dont look too good on you, they dont look good on me so i hope i never need them.

    contacts are so time consuming, my best amte has just started using them and she never has any time to put them in in the morning so does it in the common room at school.

    i say go for glasses then you dont have to wear them all the time.

    It's just...I hate the way glasses look on me, any kind of glasses...That's why I'm thinking of lenses. Are they really that much of work? I mean, I see quite good, I just see some smaller things in the distance blurred. So I don't know, but i think i should get myself glasses/lenses coz I don't want it to get worse...So I don't know. Thanks for replies, anyway.

    If u wear glasses or lenses early then maybe your eyes will correct.
    So go the fast as u can to an optician.

    In my will never ever get better :p! oh well!

    I wear glasses, lenses make me feel so.....i dunno uncomfortable. they don't bother me they don't hurt me, it's just so weird to me!!!

    But last time i wore some was long ago so now am considering them again...

    really it all depends on the person! :p
  7. I wear contacts, and for me they're a lot better than glasses. They were weird at first putting them in and out but after I got used to them it was so easy and fast. I can see a lot better with contacts than my glasses too.

    Peace In complete harmony.

    I dislike glasses, but I can't seem to get the contacts in. So I guess I'm stuck with glasses.
  9. It took me forever to get the hang of it, but eventually i did. After you try enough times they finally go in. Glasses look so retarded on me so I'm glad the contacts worked out.

    I've already been to the eye doctors (to try and get them in for the first time) like three of four times. It was a couple of hours each time. Maybe I'm just doomed :(.
  11. Aww that sucks! i guess they just dont work out for some people :( But glasses can be cool too, just not on me lol. And plus you dont have to worry about putting the contacts in every morning and remembering to take them out every night, which can definitely be a hassle...

    sounds like you are in exactly the same situation as me! I cant see clearly 2 inches past my eyes without some sort of corrective lenses. but contacts and glasses both have their advantages and disadvantages.

    I would love to have laser surgery, I would give anythign to be able to wake up in the mornign and just be able to see clearly without having to wear glasses... its weird that most people take it for granted that they can see clearly all the time.
    I would like to get the surgery, though I'm not even sure if it would work on my eyes, but only if I wouldnt have to wear any type of correction afterwards. if I will still have to wear something, but just a lesser prescription, I figure I may as well just stay as I am.

    I've needed glasses for the last couple of years for being slightly short sighted. Apparently they suit me.

    I'd never wear contact because frankly the thought of sticking something to my eyeball freaks the hell out of me (yes I'm a squeamish wussy girl pants :) ).

    Thanks for advice, You all. As from what my friends told me You can't have one without the other in Slovenia. So I guess, I'll just have to get both! Will try to stick to lenses, i think, though! Thanks anyway,
