    I wear sunglasses. Does that count?


    Actually, I'm blind as a bat. I have very thick contact lenses. :smug:

    Yeh im a glasses man 2 :cool:
  5. Around the house - glasses
    Out in the daytime - contacts and sunglasses
    Out in the eve - contacts

    Wish I had good vision, glasses and contacts are a bit of a nuisance and even if I could afford Lasik, I might be to freaked out to actully go thru with the procedure. :meh:

  6. I wear glasses during my day job and wear contact lenses on nights and weekends.

    Sounds valid to me (with the contacts):). I tried contacts about 2 years ago, but I hated the feeling of nothing between "me" and the world.

    If I didn't wear contacts, I would be a worthless human being.

    I wear glasses.

    I have considered contacts, but my eyes are very sensitive and I can't even stand putting drops in them, so I don't think I could handle contacts.

    Besides, glasses are kind of 'my look'.

    I wear a contact in one eye. My friends think I should get a monacle, but I'm afraid of looking like Mr. Peanut or the Monopoly guy.
  15. My vision is fine.

    My hearing is another story :(
  16. You may wish to reconsider trying contacts. I realize that all of us are unique individuals and my experiences are no guarantee that anyone else will have the same outcome, but I too have very sensitive eyes and thought that I would never be able to wear contacts. One day, at an eye exam, the optometrist asked if I'd like to demo a pair of lenses. I'm very near-sighted so the demo lenses were not even close to my prescription, but when he inserted the lenses, the whole world seemed to open up for me. I had never experienced peripheral vision like the contacts offered and I was hooked. I was now very motivated to wear contacts. But, after receiving my proper prescription, I found I easily endured the break-in period, which ended up being only a couple of days for me. That was over twenty years ago and I still wear contacts. Well, at fifty-four, I now have to occasionally wear reading glasses over the contacts, but that's not so unusual for my age.

    FUnny, I've got the same situation...but I wear glasses, barely.
    I wanted to go the monocle route too.

    I normally wear nothing, I can see most things fine.

    Although sometimes I do need to wear glasses (long range) and on stage I do as I like the look of em!

    I wear glasses alright, one cramped gig we played, my head (i'm 6ft 6) was about 4-5 inches from some very hot lights, i sweated so much my glasses fell off when i looked down to adjust my tone knob, but i caught them and kept playing - it got a cheer from the crowd so i didn't feel so embarassed :p
