  • Yes, from 6th grade on up. After I graduated from college and got a real job, I got Lasix :-) So nice to not need glasses except for the sun glasses.

  • Yes, I didn't get contacts until I was 16 but my daughter wears glasses and if she wants contacts I will let her get them when she's 12.

  • Yes, from 4th grade one. In high school I wore contacts, but when I got pregnant with my first I could not wear them anymore and I've been back to glasses since (and that was 16 years ago).

  • Ever since the 4th grade. Still wear them (I've never had contacts and don't plan on ever having them).
