    I've noticed in my school 5 out of 7 bassists where glasses Iwas wondering if this is true every where or im just parinoid.

    I wear glasses sometimes. I only need em for seeing far away, so right now I only wear them in school or when playing on my Xbox, because now I'm farther back (the TV got bigger as well :p)

    Small eyes that come with being asian aren't always that great, eh? :p

    Couldn't you still see fairly well, using your echolocation? :p
     
  5. I'm near-sighted, so I wear them most of the time, unless I'm reading.

    I do. I wear them almost regularly but I don't need them to see. They make things a little bit sharper but I wear them to avoid headaches.

    You'd think so, but I suck at that, too.
     
  9. yes, i got em. and pretty soon soon bi-focal. gettin older sucks.
     
  10. I wear them when I feel like seeing stuff.

    So most of the time.

    I always wear glasses. While I could play blindfolded, the other band member might have something to say about me running into them ever 30 seconds.

    Glasses rock!:bassist: I wear them constantly.

    Is it still majorly uncool to wear glasses? I used to get abused all the time in school for being a 4-eyed nerd. Funny thing is I was nearly failing most of my classes, lol.:rollno:
     
  15. I wore glasses until I was 37 - then stared deeply into the heart of a laser. It was a little freaky at the time, but it's sure nice not wearing glasses anymore.
