    Not at the moment, but I'm sure my next eye test is going to change that.

    Bloody aging process. Why can't I just be Superman? :mad: :mad:

    Yes, lately more than usual. I usually wear contacts but they've been irritating my eyes lately, so I've been going back to the glasses. Going to give it a few weeks before I try again.

    I've got an eye Dr. appt in November and I'm thinking about trying something different. Someone told me these were really good.

    Blind as a bat (-5.25 both eyes). Contacts, glasses, or a well-trained dog is a must for me.

    There is another thread, but I'm to lazy to find it.

    My model is the first consumer model Armani ever produced. They stopped it's production three or four years ago.

    Nope.

    When I tested my sight some years back I had +1 on both eyes and slightly "distorted corneas" (<- literal translation, I have no idea what that is in English ;)). No need for glasses though, as long as I didn't get headaches from reading etc. The optician said I had the eyesight of an eagle... :)

    got em zapped

    I did wear glasses until February when I got up the nerve (and finally saved up the money) to get laser eye surgery. I am now happy as can be. Things were pretty straightforward, although the few weeks of discomfort during the healing process weren't my favorite.

    Distorted corneas (if you mean skjeve hornhinner) is astigmatism. :)

    Since I was about 10 years old. Now, I'm 44 and it's time for bifocals. I should have gotten them last year but didn't want to deal with the hassle of getting used to them.

    Two days after my 21st birthday I was told I was far-sighted slightly, but had better than 20/20 distance vision. The opthamologist said that the headaches I was getting would probably not be a problem if I didn't have to read to much after college or stare at computers too long.

    The answer of, "I'm a computer science student with plans to get my doctorate" prompted an eyeglass prescription. I'm told they're very "sexy intellectual". Here's hoping. Either way, I'm stuck with them.

    Occasionally.

    I wear them to give my eyes a break from my contacts. I find them much more comfortable.

    I've also been complemented on them, so at times I wear them when my self esteem is lower than usual :)

    I've worn them since I was 11 I think, not to sure which grade it corresponds too.

    Actually, I haven't had a checkup for over 3 years, so I guess I'll book myself one next week. On the plus side - new frames! I wonder which ones I should get...:eek:

    I have very bad vision and have been wearing glasses since I was about 8 years old. I wore them every day until about 4 years ago, when I discovered the wonderful world of contact lenses! Now I wear those far mroe often than my glasses - but one way or another, I'm wearing something or else I'd be blind. :eek: ;)

    Certainly do! Though I wear contact lenses as often as possible because my glasses are nasty and I don't want to spring for new ones!

    Witness the horror....
