Topic: Glasses (contest) 👓

My favourite glasses are these, why?

Because they help me see 😂 (I'm pretty blind without them)

Photo #1 from Toronto, Canada by Cinder made on 2018-12-17 16:13 for Sola

I only own one pair, my lenses cost like $650 alone. I'm like a -8 something prescription. I used to replace it twice a year until recently because it changed so much.

I'm not a candidate for laser eye surgery and I've been unsuccessful multiple times in getting contacts in.

So I'm stuck with lenses and an ever growing dent in my nose from them since I've had them since age 8. (different frames obviously)

Do you wear glasses? or contacts?

or are you… one of them seeing folk?.. 😳

I’m one of those obnoxious seeing folks who despise their vision being perfect wants to wear glasses because she thinks they look cool and edgy. All my family wears grasses and as a kid I didn’t understand why I couldn’t wear them. I think if you find a good frame glasses can dress you. Yours look nice, I’d choose something similar if I had glasses.

Thanks. But yeah be thankful you could just buy fakes 😂.

Cinder, sure, but somehow I feel like that’s kinda disrespectful... or idk. So I keep my mild jealousy for myself. :D

I have glasses.. But I haven't a big seeing loss (is that what it's called in English?!). There was a time when I was thinking about laser my eyes but in the meantime, I've gotten used to it. I wear it all the time, because I really like it to see all things cristal clear. And lenses are a fucking nightmare to me.. Tried it.. To put them in takes an hour, and the same thing if I want to get them out. And when they are in, I look like a zombie for at least 1h...so no lenses for heisenberg!

😂 Yeah avoid contact lenses then. It's good that your vision isn't too bad.

same for me... Glasses are pretty useful while driving motorbikes... so... I never changed them (again) to contacts.

As far as I'm concerned, another word for seeing loss is impaired vision.

Cinder ... You're really cute, with or without glasses. I understand Matt. ... Lenses are not for me. I can't suffer any contacts with my eyes. Even the ophthalmologist can't touch them when she needs to examine the retina of each... 😖

CinderAuthor
Thanks 😊 And yeah the optometrist is never successful at getting the contacts in either, they let me try because they can't and then i can't. My blinking sends the contacts flying. 😅

I wore contacts from age six to 44. Then my eyes got too dry and I couldn’t stand them any more. It was hard lenses for many years. They used to flick out if I looked sideways and blinked. You learn not to do that, but I lost a lot of lenses. Gas permeable were better; I think it was because they started making them a bit larger.

Age 6, wow.

Yeah, my vision was really bad. They thought lenses could keep eyes from getting worse so quickly.

Been wearing glasses since the fourth grade, not a fan of wearing them. I have soft contacts for when I go out

CinderAuthor
I wish I could use contacts.

Infidel Castro
Cinder, why can't you wear contacts?

CinderAuthor
Infidel Castro, I blink to much so can't hold my eye open long enough and neither can the optometrist.

Infidel Castro
Cinder, it does take time to get them in, especially the first time. I barely managed it at the optometrist's.

Glasses since I put on the glasses my younger brother got in primary school yelling... ‚I see more!‘ Blind as a bat ( or like we say in German like a mole), I sometimes wear lenses but mostly frameless glasses.

Ya I tried my dad's on and was like "the trees are in 3D!" I was like 8.

Im one of the lucky people who can survive without glasses. Although they do help a lot with taking notes in class. Some of those letter look very similar especially if you start including the Greek alphabet

My brother has just reading glasses, the rest of us weren't so lucky in my family. 😂

Cinder, haha i am not sure if i would prefer that to what i have no. I think im just barely far sighted, like .5 i think. They told me i don't need glasses but u could get them if i wanted them

I only have one pair. It's my only weakness 😂 but seriously my eye-sight is decreasing rapidly. I think I spend too much time in front of a screen.
16
CinderAuthor
I thought it was screen time but then i started using screens more and that year my eyes didn't change.

Hmmm... time to see a doctor.

I remember getting the school eye test in Grade 1. You looked into a machine and said which direction the E was pointing. I just made up my answers. It didn’t occur to me that there was anything wrong with that. Surprise!

Those tests are actually terrible. I had awful eyesight but they said that I always passed and that my vision was fine

CinderAuthor
Infidel Castro, our school never did those. They did a dentist check up once. That was it.

Infidel Castro, maybe I was too blatant to miss. I probably got one out of four right by random chance. 😂

I had insane eagle vision for most of my life. But in the past year or two my range of vision has rapidly shrunk. Close vision is still hypersharp as ever but I can no longer tell if a squirrel is male or female from half a mile. In fact I can kinda not read the posters across a classroom any more. I am sad.

Cinder, yeah I need a vision check up badly. Last time I went was over 10 years ago and I read every single line on the chart

Yes, i wear glasses One for outside incl. Driving (a must) One for reading and working (laptop/pc glasses) One for holidy (see my card inside this challenge). All 3 glasses cost a lot of € (around 1500€) cos they are special glasses. Lenses not working and Laser, no thanks

I do wear either glasses or contacts. It's mostly contacts, but in the morning before I put the contacts in and in the evening after I take them off it's glasses. I screwed up my eyes by reading too much. 400-800 pages a day already as an 8-year-old. And it used to get progressively worse every year until about the age of 15 when it stopped. So I'm a -4.25 since then.

Nina One
-4.25? 😂 My eyes are worse than that AFTER cataract surgery.

I guess I should consider myself lucky so far....

I do glasses when I work and when I drive.

God.
I only use them when I'm looking at earth from a few million light years away. If I dont, individual people get a bit fuzzy around the edges.

That's entirely fair.

I wear glasses too👨🏫 Have you tried buying your lenses online? I get mine much cheaper that way
15
CinderAuthor
My boyfriend recommended a site that seemed cheaper but because of how strong my prescription is we worried the lenses wouldn't be quality enough.

I'm gonna get glasses soon. When I was 16 my vision was -1, now it's -1,5 or even -2. Now I can't even read the car plates to report them.

That's not good.

I've been wearing glasses since 2nd or 3rd grade and have very bad vision. I'm 42 years old now. I read somewhere that corrective lenses are actually making our eyes worse because our eyes aren't doing the work to try and focus on their own. So taking your glasses off and letting your eyes try to focus without them whenever you can will strengthen them. You will notice that the guys at your school who are into playing sports like football have normal vision because their eyes are focused on distant objects more often than computers or phones and books. Your eye doctor will never tell you this because they want your eyes to get weaker.

CinderAuthor
I've tried that stuff but my prescription is much too strong to go without, I get headaches and stuff. When I don't wear glasses everything 2cm past my nose is very blurred. I like wouldn't be able to see peoples faces and signs a couple meters away basically are a blob of the main color. My friend was able to correct his vision naturally but his was only like reading glasses level. Unfortunately I can't do it due to eye strain and headaches that I get without it.
Liberty JC Infowarrior
Cinder, I know. I only do it for a few minutes when I get the chance just to exercise the muschles. I'd try doing it longer but I'm like you, I can't see a damn thing.

What makes this a contest, Cinder? Just curious.

CinderAuthor
I'm not sure I didn't make it. I just post to them when I'm unsure of what to discuss. The contest is just whoever gets the most votes wins. But idc too much about that.

Why dont you switch to glasses without the nose support, they used to cause me nose dents...
20
CinderAuthor
I'm not sure if they'd fit right either. But I'm considering it for next time i get a pair.

Obtiks
Cinder, they come in different sizes, you just have to get one that fits...👍🏼
