I used to hate having to wear glasses as a kid... I just couldn't wait to finally get contact lenses (when I learned about their existence).... But this whole geek glasses idea is really appealing to me... ...

I wish I could wear contacts,but my degree of astigmatism is so bad that even the special weighted ones don't give me good vision.
It doesn't matter though,as most people seem not to be able to decide whether I look better with or without glasses...which I choose not to take as an insult

I am so used to them now;they are part of me.

The only thing is that I love to snorkel,and I don't see very much through goggles! Only in the US have I found prescription goggle lenses for rental...

This just reminds me of woody allen...

I love glasses that are a bit geeky, but generally the slimmer squarish ones with heavy frames...not the jam jar bottom type.

I really like them, they look sorda cute, but then again it all depends on the shape of your face. They all look good, especially that cory kid whom I see eveywhere. I want some now...

i've had bad eyes my whole life, but never wore glasses full time - i've worn contacts for about 12 years. i only started wearing specs full time last year...and never in the winter (hate the fogging!)

are our glasses geeky, quirky?

I have a pair of geek glasses in an rectangular-ovalish shape and I always feel self conscious (I feel like the school nerd) when I wear them.
I had a sore eye the other week and had to wear the glasses instead of my usual contact lenses and to my surprise, people commented that it was a good look! hahaha
