    Glasses or Contacts? What do you think? UPDATED! Got my glasses!

    I have found in my life that the hardest decisions to make are the ones that affect yourself. As a result I am at an impasse.....

    Glasses



    OR

    Contacts





    BTW, pardon the funny angle and horrible lighting. I am queen of the old "Take your OWN pic at arms length" move.

    It'd be better to have similar pictures but I'm saying with glasses.

    Re: Glasses or Contacts? What do you think?

    You look nice in both pictures - but it really depends on what makes you more comfortable. Contacts tend to make eyes dry and become irritated; but glasses tend to smudge and get dirty. Like aashee said, it would be easier to choose if you had two similar pictures. Personally, I like the glasses look because it adds more...."spice"...to your face.

    Re: Glasses or Contacts? What do you think?

    A little more information I should have included

    If I get glasses again I was thinking of going with a similar frame in a cobalt blue.

    I had contacts in jr. high so they don't bother me. I'm just really unsure. The only pro I have for them that matters is that I can wear sunglasses when I work. I work outside so the sunglasses are a must, but but without my glasses I can't see faces very well froma distance. Working in a school, it's important to know which child I'm speaking to, even across a field.


    And thank you for responding so quickly!

    I like contacts, mainly so if it's sunny out I can wear sunglasses without losing my vision. I'm a big fan of sunglasses.

    Re: Glasses or Contacts? What do you think?

    I like the glasses better.

    You CAN get glasses that have sunglasses - mine were attached by little magnets, so the glasses looked fine with our without. It was just a front piece that attached.

    I currently use some of those bigger sunglasses ones that just go over the glasses - they really don't look THAT bad. though I usually only wear them when i drive. I got them at the sunglasses outlet for $20.

    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    I have transition lenses on my glass that work perfectly for sunny days.

    I wear both, but I usually wear contacts.

    For you glasses for sure! The shape of the frames are great for your face!

    Re: Glasses or Contacts? What do you think?

    Thank you for all of your input!

    I think what I'm going to do is get glasses but have them give me my contact prescription too. I can always order contacts from lenscrafters.com later and surprisingly at a good price.

    yeah, you can always switch up. One day, wear glasses...then wear contacts another.

    I just don't think I could, personally, handle contacts. I'd freak out sticking something in my eye. Maybe you get used to it, though.

    You definitely get used to it. Like I said, I had contacts when I was in jr. high. The Dr. made me put them in before I could leave and it took me 45 minutes the first time. By the time I ran out, I was popping them in and out without a mirror. It's really not so bad once you get used to the idea.

    Re: Glasses or Contacts? What do you think?

    I guess so. I figured it's one of those things you get used to, and then don't even think about. I'm just weird about my eyes. And I know my husband could never do it. He's super freaky about his eyes. He flinches like crazy if I try to move a loose eyelash!
