Do you wear corrective lenses?

If so, do you wear glasses, contacts (soft/hard) or both? Do you like them?

  • I wore soft lenses most of my life, and no I didn't like them. I couldn't wear the hard ones at all though. My eyes just couldn't tolerate them. I had LASIK done in 2007 though and now I don't need to deal with any of it anymore.

  • I wear glasses when I can remember to put them on. I should wear them more often, it makes reading a lot easier!
    I tried contacts, but couldn't get over the feeling like I had something in my eye. It never went away the whole week I tried them. So, I had to keep the glasses.
    I am near sighted in one eye, far sighted in the other. The eye doctor looked at me like I was an idiot when I jokingly asked why they didn't even each other out and give me perfect vision! Guess some people can't take a joke. :-)

  • I began wearing glasses when I was 4 years old. I got my first pair of contacts when I was 14. It really doesn't bother me either way. It's whatever I decide that morning.

  • I wear gas permeable soft toric contacts. I love them. Feels like nothing at all. I have glasses too for bed time. But they are old and the dog has chewed on the ear piece.

  • I've worn glasses for the last 10 years or so. I'm nearsighted like my dad, and my daughter is too. Sometimes she and I get our glasses confused, we wear almost the exact same prescription! The only difference is I have wire rims and she has dark plastic rims.

  • I wear soft contacts and glasses w/ transition lenses. I like my contacts for when I'm working out or going to the water park but other then that I usually have my glasses on.
