Re: You and your glasses

Glasses

Whats your prescription?
I'm actually not sure lol

still increasing?
No

At what age did you get your first glasses?
I believe I was in grade 3 or 4 so I'm going to say about 7 years old.

Would you rate yourself as severely near- or farsighted?
Yes, I am very near-sighted

When do you put your glasses on in the morning?
As soon as I wake up

How do you
-read in bed?
I don't need my glasses to read

-take a shower?
Don't need my glasses for this either :bleh:

-go to the bathroom at night?
I know my house well enough that I can walk around it without my glasses.

-swim?
I don't swim mostly because of other reasons but not being able to see doesn't help.

-sports?
I wear my glasses during sports

-sex?
I've done it with and without glasses and find it better without (otherwise they just slide off).

Do you like / dislike wearing glasses?
I actually like wearing glasses for the most part, the only things I don't like about them is I can't wear normal sunglasses and they get in the way at work.

What was your worst experience related to your glasses or vision?
I don't think I have any bad experiences because of my glasses. *) I guess once I was driving and accidentally knocked off my own glasses and couldn't see lol.

Re: You and your glasses
 
Are you wearing contacts, glasses, both?
I wear both (at different times, of course! :p ). I use my contacts during the day and glasses in the mornings and at night, or after swimming.
Whats your prescription?
I'm not entirely sure what my prescription is. All I know is that I'm legally blind in my right eye, and my left eye is fairly close to 20/20. I do have astigmatism in my left eye, though.

Still increasing?
Most likely.
At what age did you get your first glasses?
I think I was four when I first got my glasses.
Would you rate yourself as severely near- or farsighted?
I can't see either way without correction! I believe I'm nearsighted, though.
When do you put your glasses on in the morning?
When I first wake up (if I can find them).
How do you
-read in bed?

I use glasses.
-take a shower?
I take showers like any other person. :p I don't use glasses or contacts.
-go to the bathroom at night?
Glasses. Usually.
-swim?
I can't use anything when I swim, but we're thinking about getting me special goggles so I can actually see (I swim competitively).
-sports?
Contacts.

Do you like / dislike wearing glasses?
I like wearing glasses. They're alright. If I didn't have to, I wouldn't wear them, but I do. They get the job done, you know?

What was your worst experience related to your glasses or vision?
I got teased when I was a little kid because I wore glasses and had one eye patched. As you get older, people are generally better about it, though.

Dark-and-Twisty June 16th 2013 12:09 AM

Re: You and your glasses
 
I used to wear glasses. I was born with congenital cataracts and had my lenses removed when I was 3. I wore glasses and/or contacts from ages 3-17. Now, I still wear glasses to read, but I can see pretty well without glasses too. I just get a cheap pair from the dollar store that are like +2.0.

I don't remember what my old prescription was (my mom always got my glasses for me back then), but I wore THICK glasses which magnified my eyes extremely.

Would you rate yourself as severely near- or farsighted?
-Well, I couldn't see at all without my glasses before I had my surgery.

When do you put your glasses on in the morning?
-Used to put them on when I first woke up. From 9-17 I would put contacts in after I got dressed.
How do you
-read in bed?
All the time.
-take a shower?
Used to with my glasses on.
-go to the bathroom at night?
Used to just grab my glasses (they were by my night stand), or I could feel my way around the room.
-swim?
I actually used to swim without my glasses or contacts at one point. I couldn't see, and it was really blurry. Though, for some reason, I could actually see better under water! I was on the swim team ages 15-17, and that's when I started swimming with my contacts. I'd just wear goggles.
sports?
I wore contacts for the most part. Though, there are pictures of me around age 8 playing volleyball with glasses.
-sex?
I didn't have sex until after my surgery. :p

Do you like / dislike wearing glasses?
HATED

What was your worst experience related to your glasses or vision?
My glasses broke on a few occasions, which sucked. Worst experience related to my vision was right after my last surgery I couldn't see well out of my right eye. I was scared I'd never get my full vision back, but now I can see pretty well out of both eyes. It sucked, because I was on the bowling team and wasn't allowed to participate in one of the meets because my pressure was off.

When I open my eyes

How do you

Re: You and your glasses
 
I'm 19 and I have reading glasses. I have prisoms in mine that help with my convergence insufficiency. I've had them since I was 15. I only wear them when I am reading. I think they are kind of a pain to have to bring along everywhere but I like them cuz they make it easier to read. And I have to say I have a cute pair. My friends say they make me look like a sexy secretary. So I guess that's a good thing. My worst experience with my glasses is when I accidentally sat on them and they snapped. But it turned into a good thing cuz I ended up getting a much cuter pair.

Re: You and your glasses

17

Are you wearing contacts, glasses, both?
Just glasses. I want contacts so bad though. D:

Whats your prescription?
I don't know off the top of my head and am due for an eye appointment.

still increasing?
Very slightly.

At what age did you get your first glasses?
I was in the fourth grade. So like 9-10?

Would you rate yourself as severely near- or farsighted?
I'm nearsighted. Severely, I don't know? I wear my glasses all the time or else things get blurry so. XD

When do you put your glasses on in the morning?
As soon as I wake up.

How do you
-read in bed?
With my glasses on. I read until my vision gets blurry just from my eyes getting tired.

-take a shower?
Without glasses.

-go to the bathroom at night?
I can see well enough to do that. I can't see in the dark in general though so we have a nightlight, it gets pitch black.

-swim?
Without glasses. If I need to see something important I get out of the pool and put my glasses on.

-sports?
I don't play sports except for like, gym class and for there I wear glasses.

-sex?
Virgin!

Do you like / dislike wearing glasses?
I'm used to it by now. The only time I don't really want to wear them is when I look formal but even then as long as I look nice it's fine.

What was your worst experience related to your glasses or vision?
One day in the 4th grade it was a windy day, and I started opening the car door and the wind took it and smacked me right in the face, bending my brand new glasses. Thankfully they were wire-frames so I was able to take them to WalMart to get them repaired, but I couldn't see them in class that day and my teacher had to move my desk way close to the board. On the bright side, my nose only got a tiny bruise rather than a huge black eye!

Re: You and your glasses
 
How old are you?
20


Are you wearing contacts, glasses, both?
I'm *supposed* to wear my glasses pretty much all the time but generally don't. I can't see things clearly from a distance of maybe 7/8 feet, though, so I do need them.

Whats your prescription?
I have no idea. I'm due to be tested again after summer I think.

still increasing?
Very slightly I think.

At what age did you get your first glasses?
About 15

Would you rate yourself as severely near- or farsighted?
Nah I can get by without my glasses.

When do you put your glasses on in the morning?
If I had a pair I liked, I'd put them on when I got up.

How do you
-read in bed?
No problem seeing things close up so I don't need glasses for this.

-take a shower?
Does anyone shower in their glasses? :nosweat:

-go to the bathroom at night?
Stumbling in the dark and walking into things. ;)

I generally avoid swimming.

-sex?
I don't need my glasses for this.

Do you like / dislike wearing glasses?
I don't mind wearing them because they do make a big difference. I just don't like the ones I have and I was pressured into them by an excited assistant.

What was your worst experience related to your glasses or vision?
Probably the amount of times I've missed a bus due to not wearing my glasses because I've not been able to read where it's going until it's right in front of me. XD

I've taken a liking to contacts as its like, you have normal vision. No frames blocking your side view or anything resting on your nose etc etc.

When I look back at the photos of me in the first 2 frames I had. I look fucking ugly. >.<

Re: You and your glasses

not important

Are you wearing contacts, glasses, both?
Both. I'm too young to have laser eye surgery which I am planning on getting.

Do you like / dislike wearing glasses?
I don't most of the time. Maybe for fashion reasons.

But to be honest, they always get dirty, when it rains they get stained, and they glare during the night. Even the most expensive lenses.

Contacts are a step above except you can't leave them in your eyes for long.

What was your worst experience related to your glasses or vision?
I always break a pair by accident every year or so. Bad luck.
